The expanding restaurant and entertainment scene in the Downtown Crossing area recently welcomed a pair of intriguing additions when both Versus (42 Province St., 617-482-1213, versusboston.com, pictured) and Better Sorts Social Club (Kimpton Nine Zero Hotel, 90 Tremont St., 617-772-5834, bettersortsboston.com) debuted in October. Decked out with Pop Art-inspired murals and packed with vintage arcade favorites, pinball machines, modern gaming consoles and classic analog games like Jenga, Versus gives new meaning to the term “dinner and a show.” Better Sorts, meanwhile, tempts with a bar program helmed by craft cocktail maven Naomi Levy and a menu of seasonal bar bites and shareable plates, all served in a sleek, sophisticated setting. Whether you’re looking to get your game or your cocktail on, Downtown Crossing has you covered this fall.
