If you hear a cry of "8 ball, corner pocket" inside World Championship Billiards & Sports Lounge, it might not immediately be clear where that pocket is. That's because the lounge houses 18 pool tables, which you can use for lessons, pickup games, or five-nights-a-week league matches. In between rounds, players and spectators can munch on classic bar food such as jalape?o poppers and kielbasa sandwiches. Bartenders complement each feast with a choice of 15 beers, and live DJs lure guests from the pool tables to the dance floor every Friday night.

Pool players of all ages and skill levels can find all the right angles at VIP Billiards’ 20 pool tables seven days a week. When not sinking shots into the spot’s 120 pockets, cue hands keep busy with bottles of beer or a cocktail from the full-service bar, and all patrons can pass the time between games by throwing darts, sending ping-pong balls careening across tables, or using the WiFi to look up pro tips for applying chalk. VIP Billiards also opens up its space and all the attendant green felt surfaces for private parties, fundraisers, and APA league teams.

Imported beer, wine, and premium liquor are also available to add entertainment to billiards tournaments.

On Cue endorses merrymaking by entertaining visitors with pub-style grub, drinks, and games. Guests can claim one of the 15 pool tables for an exciting hour of scoring pocket points ($10–$14/hour for two, $3 fee for additional players), then explore the four dartboard areas, where players fling pointy things for free. While taking a breather from billiards, pool-hall denizens quench their thirst with libations at the full bar. Hungry customers can dunk jalapeño poppers ($6), buffalo wings ($6), and buffalo shrimp ($7) in a choice of blue cheese, ranch, barbecue, or honey-mustard dipping sauce, and those concerned about the big game can turn to On Cue's big-screen TV, which proudly displays sports.
