This place has good drinks, popcorn, darts, and a great trivia night. It has a nice cozy, wood-paneled feel. Worth a visit.

Bar has been here for ages...slanted floor and all. Bar area and back room. Board games and darts. As a place to kill some time with friends. Nice.

On San Pablo, The Albatross is a long time pub in W Berkeley with many beers on tap and full bar. They have lots of games you can play, or you can bring your own. They have several good Belgian beers.

This Berkeley institution always has a good selection of beer on tap - and as much free popcorn as you can eat! Unfortunately, that is the only food they serve, but they don't mind you bringing your own or ordering a pizza to be delivered....More

The mixed crowd, quizzo (at least the night we were there), board games and worn but comfortable interior make this a fun low-key place to get a few drinks. Just a good all-around vibe. Every town should have one of these.

The Albatross is a pub you would like to hand around your neck so you could take it with you anywhere. A great, fun friendly place with a terrific selection of beer and other beverages, darts & other games, and very pleasant, interesting people.
