Two pool tables, a foosball table, wide screen TVs, a selection of retro arcade games (including Sega’s 1987 classic After Burner!) and two KTV rooms fitted out with PS3s and Guitar Hero ensure that you’ll never be bored. Another DJ booth on a stage overlooking the bar further confirms Fuel’s status as a party venue. The daily 4-8pm buy-one-get-one-free happy hour is a waste, as most people will be stuck in rush hour, but Fuel does everything else right. It manages to be a sports bar, yet retain a semblance of class, and for those on the rim, it is simply heaven sent.
