Basement addition is filled with canned beer, a "Ms. Pac-Man" machine and other good times.

Swing downstairs at Henry's starting on Thursday night to explore the new Rec Room and enjoy retro-style 1970s good times, complete with a disco ball and jukebox. The new space gives patrons a place to chill without worrying about waking up your parents upstairs.

There's big leather couches so groups of 10 can convene and plot their next step toward nocturnal supremacy. Hopefully, the candles littered throughout the space don't present a fire hazard, but those punch bowls look delectable with strawberries and fresh herbs. It's all part of the Rec Room's special cart service. Folks not into the punch scene have a choice of canned beers and bottled cocktails. At midnight Rec Room will offer patrons free food from their fridge filled with fried chicken, popsicles and pizza.

There's also an analog jukebox that's stocked with vinyl. And if that doesn't tickle your fancy, why not sit down with a friend and go head to head in a rousing game of "Ms. Pac-Man?" Yes, it's the sit-down version.

The Rec Room will be open Thursday through Sunday. Check out the menu below.
