There are pool tables as far as the eye can see inside On Cue Billiards. At least it feels that way ? there are actually 25, which host rounds of everything from eight-ball to bank pool until 2 a.m. nightly. Since opening in May of 1992, On Cue has also crowns pool champs every Monday night with its in-house nine-ball tournament. Win or lose, everybody can feast like victors at the bar, which supplies pub classics like spicy chicken fingers alongside eight draft beers.
Society Billiard Café combines the pool hall's social atmosphere with a full bar and eatery's complement of entrees and drinks. Pool sharks pay by the hour, sinking stripes and solids on green felt-topped tables lining the pool hall. Black chairs and marble-top tables encourage chatting over drinks and pizza slices from a full bar and food service, and die-hard pool pros can spend all three hours perfecting their trick shots off through the 8th dimension.
