Rockets and astronauts adorn the walls in this basement hole in the wall, and eight spaceshiplike sculptures hang from the ceiling. The rest of the decor—glittered bar tops, two vintage jukeboxes, and ’50s furniture—give it a homey feel. There are seven pool tables, six shuffleboard tables, six dartboards, and a stock of board games. Rocket Bar doesn’t have a kitchen, but you can order food in; bartenders keep a stack of menus on hand. There are daily specials on beer, rail drinks, and house wine.
