With a full complement of Brunswick Gold Crown tables punctuating the pool hall with swatches of green felt, Crown Billiards offers ample space for pool enthusiasts of all levels. Weekly tournaments give seasoned players a chance to show off and compete for cash prizes, while amateur leagues gives beginners a chance to work on their games. The resident pool pro Carmen Lombardo gives tips to players and offers lessons for an additional fee. Crown Billiards also houses a cue repair shop and a full kitchen, which serves coffee, snacks, and hot sandwiches.
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.
Restored and re-covered Brunswick Gold Crown tables wait at Pool Time Billiards Club. Players can grab cues and line up perfect bank shots with their own refreshments in tow, which the Club will gladly keep chilled. An internet jukebox, large-screen television, and a sampling of video games keep entertainment levels up during post-game breaks. Additionally, Pool Time Billiards Club hosts weekly leagues for those seeking a little competitive glory.
