Union Hall has somewhat of a split personality. The front of the place looks like you're about to enter a library or a den in some dark mansion with its massive book shelf and lounge seating. Walk a bit further and you start to hear the clanging. But it's not from drinks at the bar. It's the sound of bocce balls from two built-in bocce courts. These folks take the game seriously. Some could probably even put the old-timers in Bensonhurst to shame. We enjoyed watching while sipping ice cold Hoegarrdens from the bar. The menu offers bar inspired fare like "The Hog Wing", smoked pork shank marinated in Jack Daniels. Then there's the "Jim Bean Casserole", a play on franks and beans served with wild boar sausage, and an old favorite Milk and Cookies. Union Hall also offers live entertainment in a downstairs lounge, as well as outdoor seating in a small courtyard. And be prepared for the unisex bathrooms. Individual stalls line an entire wall. The good news, you probably won't have to wait to go.
