Not kid friendly - so a nice place, but not for kids

I love Union Hall but recently went there on a Saturday with my wife, 8 month old daughter and several friends after brunch. My daughter was sleeping in her stroller and we stopped for a couple of dirnks and were told unfolded strollers weren't allowed. I politely argued that she was sleeping and I didn't want to wake her and I was told those were the rules. The place was empty as it was early on Saturday and I was quite surprised but all 9 of us left so we didn't have to wake the little one. I won't go back there again with kids, and I'm not sure why this is ranked in the top five of kid friendly bars when they are clearly not kid friendly enough. Not to say it's not a nice place, it's just not what I would call kid friendly.

I would like to invite everyone to join me August 29th in celebration of the end of this quasi-summer with a night of drinking, dancing, and all out entertainment in Park Slope. Details will be posted at

Favorite Bar in Park Slope

When ever I return back to my home neighborhood, I always make sure to stop by for one drink at Union Hall. The beer is tasty and more inexpensive than I had thought and could potentially be for what it offers. The wine is good and is reasonably priced. There are two Bocce lanes which facilitates more game-playing and seems to not get rowdy. The best part of Union Hall is definitely how it is furnished. The chandlers, lush/old-fashion sofas, classic high chair bar, book shelves, wooden floors, exposed brick walls and of course the fire place really make this a great conversation and chill spot. A fantastic hangout, first date and meet up for one drink spot. I also agree with Knockouted's review before me.

i love union hall. such a great slightly quirky VERY brooklyn place and by brooklyn i dont mean hipsterish (tho some of them are inevitably there) but i mean laid back, undestated cool, good beer and good bar food. you walk in and feel instantly at home and the bocce ball courts are an awesome thing. its for grownups. i dont mean your mom & dad but even they wouldnt feel too out of place there
