Numbered balls ricochet across the green-felted pool tables at Olympic Billiards during regular open-play sessions and tournaments, their clacks creating a subtle rhythmic soundtrack. When not aiming pool cues or hiring a sheepdog to corral every ball except the eight ball, patrons can test their accuracy at dartboards and their timing at air-hockey tables. While playing, they sip on cocktails such as the incredible hulk, surfer on acid, or oatmeal cookie shot, or choose from 12 domestic, imported, and craft beers on tap. On the food menu, traditional pub bites mingle with Asian dishes such as gyoza, egg rolls, and spicy ramyun noodles.

Billiard Hoang is where you can eat a delicious bowl of Pho and then play a fun game of pool. Walk into this cool sports bar complete with brick walls, swinging ceiling lamps and plenty of pool tables. Before you become a pool shark, order up one of their authentic Vietnamese dishes. Their menu has an impressive list of savory traditional favorites, including Banh Mi (a famous Vietnamese sandwich), Ga Ngu Vi (5-spice Chicken) and Hai San (seafood) noodle soup. One of the most recommended dishes by regulars is the Grilled Short Rib; be sure to try it out!
There are bowling alleys where you can go and just bowl. And then there's ACME Bowl?a 51,000-square-foot facility that contains two alleys, as well as an arcade, billiards room, two shuffleboard tables, multiple dining areas, and a bar?where you can do more, and often simultaneously. At any of The Alley's 30 glittering lanes, for example, you can have food delivered lane-side from the on-site restaurant, The Break Room. The Break Room's lineup of Big Lebowski nachos, sweet chili Thai pizzas, and lavish burgers gives your non-bowling hand something to do besides write a condolence card for the pins' family.
Private parties, meanwhile, can settle in away from the crowd at Seven10, a private lounge with 10 lanes flanked by leather couches and 150" projection screens. Smaller HD screens are mounted above nine-foot Brunswick pool tables at Q Billiards, broadcasting everything from NBA to World Cup games. The entire family-friendly venue is non-smoking.
The weather in the Pacific Northwest isn’t always ideal for spending time outside, which is why Java Billiards keeps daytime as well as nighttime hours. More than just a shelter from the elements, though, the all-ages pool hall stands as an emphatic answer to boredom. It invites families to sink shots on five different pool tables and rack up wins during games of checkers and foosball. Making good on the “java” part of its name, the facility’s full espresso counter brews fresh lattes and mochas and serves up smoothies and italian sodas. Perhaps most importantly, Java Billiards maintains a safe environment for all ages by not serving alcohol or advertising itself as a hangout for vampires.
