Pregame has ‘official’ sized game tables and, even more essential to a proper game of beer pong, the bar also imports the classic red Solo cups from America. Most of the beer is fairly priced, so you won’t break the bank if you decide to play here.
For those of you still wondering what beer pong is, it’s a game which involves the tossing of ping pong balls into your opponent’s cup filled with beer. If you sink it, the other team has to drink that cup. There are many other rules involved, so if you’re curious, here are the house rules.
Pregame has two separate floors with completely different atmospheres. The upstairs is designed more like a quiet dining pub. It has intimate lighting and they play music at a reasonable level. It’s also keep very clean, making it a great place to chat or grab a bite/drink with a couple friends.
The downstairs has a completely different layout. It consists of one moderately sized room with longer tables. The lighting is a little brighter and is more suitable for bigger groups. The basement is also where the beer pong tables are located. And as long as you have beer, they can be pulled out and used for free at any time.
