Mini-golf in Manhattan? Most certainly! With nine holes, though, perhaps it's more accurately described as mini-mini-golf. You can find it at Bowlmor Union Square's Greenwich Village Country Club, whose retro decor is straight out of the '60s. In typical New York City fashion, the course—which features greenery and restored animal statues from a 1950s mini-golf course—is on the fifth floor of the venue (which is technically the rooftop, enclosed by an enormous pressurized dome). Be a sport and give it a shot—since it's indoors, you can play whether rain or shine, hot or cold. After going a round, which costs anywhere from $7.95 to $9.95 depending on the day and time, enjoy a round of drinks at The 19th Hole, a bar whose seats are appropriately upholstered with an argyle pattern. Afterward, relax in The Par-tee Lounge, The Putt Putt Hutt, The Club House and The Fairway Lounge, where you can partake in shuffleboard, air hockey, billiards and beer pong. And if you're hungry for "mor," head down to the third and fourth floors, where you'll find 42 lanes of bowling.
