For years, billiards was associated with smoke-filled pool halls, the dens of asthmatic hustlers and seedy habitués. At Hot Shots Westside Family Billiards, a charcoal-filtered HVAC system ensures the air—and the atmosphere—stays clean, making the establishment appropriate for players of all ages. Kids under 10 always play for free on the hall's 22 pocket billiard tables ranging from 7 to 9 feet, including three premium Chevillotte heated tables imported from France. At the Over the Rail Café, the staff prepares burgers and milkshakes, and an arcade room provides a healthier diversion with pinball machines, video games, and dart boards. Beyond recreational games of pool, Hot Shots also hosts charity tournaments throughout the week, and instructors impart the secrets of activating the powerful magnets under the table during private lessons.
