Playful Pony Up Features More Than Just French Dips

Fun artwork, different seating options, a patio, and more are just part of the restaurant and bar

Whether at lunch or late at night, the new Pony Up delivers on its promise of all-day French dips inside the former home of The 9th Door Downtown, which closed back in April.

But the restaurant and bar keeps it playful with an entrance fitting its mischievous decor. Diners walk into the first-floor bar to find a large piece of dog art and a chandelier awaiting. Table seating, a comfy lounge section, and a casual area with space to sit or stand make up one side of the space, while the bar dominates the other side. A garage door rolls open at the front to reveal a patio.

Pony Up offers games, too. Two stand up shuffleboard games keep visitors entertained.

Take a look around.
