The Chase Club has a dimly lit atmosphere perfect for an after-work cocktail or refuge on a hot summer's day. Inside, a long bar seats about 20 people, and there are eight high-top tables. Behind the bar are six TVs and a huge big screen. In the foyer are several Internet-connected arcade games, including Silver Strike Bowling and Golden Tee Golf. Mondays, from 5 to 8 p.m., there's free golf, and since the games are online, you can play against people in faraway places. Walk to the back of the bar and they've got three new electronic dart boards and a touch-screen jukebox. The bar may be a tight fit when it's crowded, but the mirrored walls keep the place from feeling claustrophobic. And not only can you buy a drink, but purchase and smoke stogies as well. Overall, the club is Grade-A place to chill. But don't come too hungry; they only offer complimentary hors d'oeuvres daily.
