Also referred to as the Union Underground.

Edgar's is the only bar located directly on campus. It is located at the bottom of the old Edgar A. Brown University Union, below McCabe and Holmes dorms. In years past it was open most every night, presenting small bands, open mic nights, karaoke, etc. But due to low popularity and attendence, Edgar's bar-area is now closed most nights with the exception of special occassions such as concerts. They do still serve beer out of a concession window located near the Xbox lounge.

The rest of the area, referred to as the Union Underground houses a 10-lane bowling alley, an Xbox lounge, ping-pong tables, TVs, a projection TV (mainly for big sporting events) and 10 full-size pool tables. They hold both 9 and 8 ball tournaments regularly and have recently begun to hold poker tournaments.

Xbox lounge

On January 11, 2006 Edgar's replaced the arcade room with an Xbox lounge. The barstools have been replaced with couches and the arcade machines have been replaced with four Xbox consoles each paired with a TV. For $4 an hour (plus $2 an hour per extra controller) gamers can choose from a growing list of games to play on. The Xboxes are also networked together for the potential of hosting sixteen players simultaniously in one game.
