Besides being a sports-bar and grill, Peabody?s Billiard and Games racks up good times in the triangle of pool tables, dartboards, and foosball. Of course, the 70 TVs and on-premises liquor store don?t hurt either. Periodic all-you-can-drink happy hours and other special events take place every week, offering table athletes of all stripes an arena for friendly competition. Patrons might square off in the weekly beer-pong rally, or pit their psychic skills against each other in the weekly poker tournaments. All the while, the kitchen bustles into the night, preparing late night items using only the freshest ingredients such as the spanish nachos, garlic knots, and Peabody?s signature wings in one of fifteen sauces including honey garlic and hot BBQ.
We are Tampa's largest combined Sports Bar and Billiards Hall: 7000 Square feet of good times! 18 Pool tables, foosball, video games, 25 different beers, 17 different kinds of wings, full kitchen, HDTVs for the games, great music, close to USF and Busch Gardens. Open Mon-Sat 11am to 3am and Sun 1pm to 3am.
Backstage Billiards I-Drive's name certainly doesn?t bury the lede??beginners and pool sharks alike can rack up games on any of the bar's 24 Brunswick tables. At the same time, it doesn't encompass the myriad billiards alternative patrons can enjoy, from hitting bullseyes on seven electronic dartboards to sinking holes-in-one during rounds of
Golden Tee or cornhole. For those who prefer spectating, 20 plasma-screen televisions stay tuned to the day's biggest games and most heartwarming huddles. Amid all this sports?centric revelry, bartenders serve beverages in ice-cold mugs as well as mixed drinks from behind a 55-foot, full-liquor bar every night until 2 a.m.
Since 1995, pool sharks have been sinking balls into the corner pocket at Trick Shots. At each of its three locations, groups gather around tables to engage in friendly competition and observe all seven of Newton's laws of motion. As they play, customers nosh on selections from a menu of large fresh deli sandwiches and snacks, such as beer-battered onion rings and chicken wings, while a full bar offers cocktails, soft drinks, and draft beers nearby.
The WhirlyDome is a flurry of light and activity. Engines roar in a Formula 1 simulator, video games beep and hum in the arcade, and lasers ricochet in the laser-tag maze. The dome?s core attraction, however, is WhirlyBall, billed as the world's only mechanized team sport. Players try to shoot wiffle balls into elevated goals as they steer bumper cars across the dome's two 4,000-square-foot courts. Dubbed WhirlyBugs, the electrically powered vehicles can reach speeds of up to 5 miles per hour, like turtles who are running really, really late.
The Formula 1 racing simulator is another popular attraction. All-enveloping television screens surround riders with a realistic reproduction of the racing experience, from steering around sharp turns to suddenly braking as a promising young brain surgeon crosses the street. Competitors scamper through swirling haze in the laser frenzy, or they encounter simulated ocean creatures during rounds of undersea-themed laser tag. In between activities, players pop in and out of the onsite Bloodhound Brew Pub & Eatery, where bartenders pour drafts of local craft beer to pair with pub food, from rolls to burgers served with crispy waffle fries.
Neon red overhead and floor lights, luxury booths and banquette seating, and two 40-person bars help differentiate Kings Bowl from the old-fashioned bowling alley you?re probably picturing. The 30,000-square-foot entertainment complex features 22 ten-pin bowling lanes (four of them in one private room and six in another), four full-size billiards tables, an outdoor bocce ball court, a ping pong table, and a shuffleboard table. In between turns, you can let your eyes wander to more than 60 big-screen HDTVs and a projector screen.
In addition to games, Kings Bowl offers chef-driven, creative american cuisine made from scratch, such as buffalo wontons, signature pizzas, maple-glazed scallops, and their famed steak tips. A laundry list of martinis, cocktails, and craft beers take the sting out of losing a game of bowling to an opponent throwing granny-style.
