Pool Halls in DeSoto

A flat-screen TV casts its photons upon leather couches that would make clouds jealous with their fluffiness. A coffee table anchors the spot, and it's only a small corner of the bar and grill. Beyond this bastion of basement-like coziness, Sharky's Bar & Grill houses more high-definition big screens, nine pool tables just waiting for the next bold belly flop, and those two other classic crowd-pleasers: food and drink. The kitchen staff prepares pub fare such as burgers, brats, and pizza. They also serve frosty beverages on the brand-new patio or invite guests to play bar games such as darts, NTN trivia, poker, and shuffleboard. Professional hockey-, football-, baseball-, and soccer-watching parties occupy Sharky's busy events calendar nearly every weekday, while weekly karaoke and pool nights let patrons show off their singing skills or well-honed eye-hand coordination.

Landscaped holes sprawl across the grounds of Putt-Putt Fun Center's three locations, challenging visitors to take hold of putters and test their short game. Besides putt-putt golf, the center has batting cages that hurl baseballs and the occasional tomato at various speeds. The attractions at Alley Cats Entertainment Center, include kid-friendly laser tag, rock-climbing, and an arcade, as well as a bar with billiards for the grown-ups. Both locations are home to giant arcades featuring state-of-the-art games and redemption centers to cash in tickets for prizes.
