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.
As host to league battles between both the American Poolplayers Association (APA) and the North American Poolshooters Association (NAPA), Ivory Billiards Lounge takes its playing conditions very seriously, and has since 1945. Professional standard Simonis cloth covers keep balls rolling to their intended trajectory, and meticulous leveling ensures fair gameplay. Casual players learning the ropes or a reincarnated Minnesota Fats can rack 'em up on their expansive selection of pool pulpits, including 10 7-foot tables, nine 9-footers, and a rare 5'x10' table that was smuggled down a beanstalk. Gambling fans can get their kicks on Keno and Mass Lottery games, while of-age adults savor more than 30 flavors of vodka and a quintet of draft beers. Ivory Billiards Lounge is open seven days a week, and keeps night owls entertained until 2 a.m. every evening.

On Cue endorses merrymaking by entertaining visitors with pub-style grub, drinks, and games.
