There are plenty of bars where one can watch sports, but precious few in which one can actually play sports. Count The Diamond in this latter, far more exclusive group. The Brooklyn bar has decked out its backyard with a shuffleboard table, rubber-ring quoits, and a ski lift that connects the lower and upper levels. These are typically the attractions that draw guests from every borough, though the bar’s extensive selection of beers keeps them coming back for more. To balance out some of their stronger brews, the bar’s staff serves a menu of gourmet pub food that includes savory pies, plates of meats and cheeses, and pickles pulled fresh from the brine of glass Pickle Guys containers.
