Break Bar & Billiards combines the elements that make a neighborhood bar worth revisiting into an urban adult playground. At the 55-foot bar, bartenders dispense 18 draught beers and a dozen different bottles, while a full kitchen crew whips up a menu of buffalo wings, nachos, and burgers. Between brews, the staff allows patrons to hit the billiards, table tennis, air hockey, and vintage arcade games to decide who will buy the next round or who has to swallow the eight-ball. The 7,000-square-foot space is lined with exposed brick, industrial heating vents, and vaulted ceilings, lending a sophisticated feel to the playground.
Since 1991, countless 8-balls have sunk into the corner pockets of the 15-plus Brunswick Gold Crown III tables at Eastside Billiards & Bar. Amateurs and pool sharks alike line up shots during by-the-hour rounds, games in Eastside’s year-round coed league, or lessons geared toward all ages and skill levels. Other gamesmen and women can whack ping pong balls, test their aim at skeeball, or admire the alphabet’s most valuable letter during games of Golden Tee. Sports also unfold on Eastside’s seven big-screen TVs, which decorate a cocktail lounge where patrons can relax with a choice of 20 beers and more than a dozen specialty cocktails.
Open 24 hours a day, this 12th-floor Koreatown space known as Space Billiard Cafe hosts some fourteen classic and Korean-style (no pockets) pool tables, which start at $17 per hour depending on the number of players. Frills are few inside this party-vibe space, apart from the many flatscreen TVs on the walls and the attached bar area that serves a few American and Korean snacks, plus free hot tea to keep you awake and attentive around the clock. If your feet get tired, Space Billiards offers a pair of Crocs at each table to cushion the standing. Guests can also use them to climb up the fire escape, open to smokers, for a great view of the Empire State Building.
