Brooklyn is the place to be if you want to partake in bocce. The polished decor at Park Slope's vast Union Hall could be likened to that of a university club library—if such a place also had two boisterous bocce courts and a long bar serving beer made in the borough. Floyd, NY, in Brooklyn Heights, is Union Hall's older, smaller, more casual brother. The spot sports a mishmash of beat-up benches, couches and chairs, and while there's only one bocce court here, you won't wait very long to play. Both bocce bars host leagues, if you're ready for that kind of team commitment.
