Punch Bowl Social in The Domain has a bit of a “bar in a mall” feel, but it’s easy to look past that once you see the pinball, skeeball, darts, ping pong, pool, and bowling. It’s the perfect place to come with a bunch of friends to feel like you’re having your seventh birthday party all over again, but without the sheet cake with your face on it, unfortunately. And once you’ve all had enough of being competitive, you can head into one of their private karaoke rooms to sing your favorite Oasis songs together.
