Inside Miss Cue Sports Cafe, guests are greeted with the clatter of pool balls on 22 tables intermingling with the sound of laughter. Between table times, players shore up hand-eye coordination with games of shuffleboard and darts or play shrunken-down versions of sports, such as basketball shootout and foosball.
Sports fans keep one eye on the televisions scattered about the space and the other on the menu of Harry's Hot Dog Hut. The pure vienna beef hot dogs come with innovative toppings such as creamed peas, bacon, baked beans, and a spicy mango chutney made with a house recipe. The full-service bar stands at the ready to concoct libations that wash down dogs better than frosty mugs of mustard.
Fun and flavor go hand-in-hand at Electric Stick, a bar that’s one part casual pool hall and one part restaurant. A fireplace warms the restaurant section, where servers deliver Italian and American fare such as burgers, pizzas, and pasta. Nearby, six pool tables host games of billiards, 17 televisions broadcast sports, and video games host rounds of virtual golf or darts. In addition, regular charity poker games let patrons showcase their Texas hold'em skills and collection of intimidating sunglasses while raising money for a worthy cause. :m]]
Snooker's Pool & Pub's two locations pair the excitement of a billiard game with a menu of pub food and a fully stocked bar of liquors and beers. From pizza to sandwich platters, the menu nourishes billiard spectacles, and bartenders stir drinks such as rum and cokes or long island iced teas.
All 50,000 square feet of the Total Sports facility are packed to the rafters with athletic and leisure activities. The space welcomes team play with a full bowling alley and courts for racquetball, handball, and Wallyball?a game that challenges players to ricochet a ball from the walls of the court, which is the only respectable way to play tennis against yourself. An outdoor field hosts recreational and league softball games. Downstairs, a fitness center allows for cardio and resistance training, while a spa sauna and whirlpool melt away stress. Upstairs lies a sprawling sports bar, where the aromas of pub fare, such as sandwiches and pizza, join with the sounds of sporting events screened on HDTVs.
The sudden clatter of a billiards break. The quick shuffling of cards. A pinball machine's clanging bells. All can be heard at The Velvet Rail, where everything from regulation-size felt-topped tables to foosball and air hockey keep patrons of all ages entertained. As a digital jukebox pumps out tunes, snacks such as hot dogs, nachos, and hummus fuel games of snooker or pool, and free WiFi allows players to post online personal ads for "eight ball seeks corner pocket."
Though Ultimate Sports Bar & Grill is a great place to watch sports—its more than 30 HDTVs play NFL Sunday Ticket games each week—visitors don’t have to just sit there. Instead, they can play arcade machines, shoot pool at 15 tables and test their luck at darts. During breaks from Club Keno rounds and Golden Tee games, guests amble up to the bar to sample more than 50 Michigan-brewed beers. On Saturday evenings the bar brings in live bands to serenade guests until the music overtakes them and they put their shoes on their hands to prove they can still be spontaneous.
