Mangia Italiano (3145 South Grand Boulevard; 314-664-8585) is now offering more than yummy Italian food and live music. It opened its new game room on April 25.

The downstairs space, which was formerly used for private events, is now Mangia's brand-new game room. It boasts two steel-tipped dart boards, two pool tables, a Golden Tee machine and an old-school arcade game. After 10 p.m. there is a bartender down there as well with a limited bar full of Mangia's most popular items.

"We've been using it as a private-party room, and really only using it a couple times a week," owner Collier Evans tells us. "So we just decided that [a game room] would be a better use for that space all day every day."

Mangia will still be able to accommodate larger parties in its upstairs dining room, but it just won't be a private space. Mangia and its game room are open until 3 a.m.
