Taking pool shots inside Bison Billiards can feel more like playing in a professional tournament than at a local pool hall. This is because players test their mettle on multiple professional-quality pool tables––including Diamond and Gabriels––covered in Simonis cloth and stocked with Aramith balls. The in-house pro shop equips players with a variety of cues, accessories, and cases from top-industry names such as Predator and Poison. About the only distraction from the billiards is the stocked bar, which houses more than 25 varieties of beer and a bank of dartboards that enables visitors to practice their aim before the tailless donkeys invade.
Dedicated to unleashing the inner pool sharks in players of all ages, the staff at Danny Greens Billiards Bar outfits patrons with all of the equipment necessary to engage in family-friendly recreation. The sounds of orbs cracking together fills the air as groups of revellers assemble around the bar’s fleet of pool tables for hours of billiards. Mo Seto—a five-time Canadian snooker and nine-ball champion—imparts her cue-handling prowess during in-depth lessons on the essentials of billiards such as proper striking form and how to properly use blue chalk for a Smurf costume. The bar offers organic and vegetarian dishes alongside standard bar noshes including wings, nachos, and sweet-potato fries. To further bolster the entertaining atmosphere, Danny Greens’ hosts an ever-changing line-up of events throughout the week, from open-mic nights to stand-up comedy shows. The 4,000-square-foot space can also accommodate leagues, tournaments, parties, and events.

Computerized scoring tracks bowlers’ adventures on Streetsville Bowl’s 12 lanes, documenting their every victory or defeat over an opposing army of five pins. Optional bumpers can shift the battle's odds in players’ favor, preventing balls from rolling away into the gutter or off to pacifist colonies to exist alongside pins in harmony. During breaks from the action, players can refuel with snack-bar fare such as piping-hot mozzarella sticks, or man the joysticks at the onsite arcade.
A chorus of scattering pins fills the air at All Star Interactive, a two-floor complex where guests hurl bowling balls down 24 lanes equipped with automatic scoring. A casual atmosphere awaits downstairs, where guests can compete in classic bowling or cosmic bowling. Upstairs, the Danforth Suite houses 12 private lanes amid dark leather lounge chairs and sofas, large-screen TVs, a full-service bar, and commissioned Canadian art illuminated by pendant lights. The upscale alleyway hosts private parties, corporate events, league games, and seminars on what to do if you encounter a bowling ball in the wild. And while bowling is clearly All Star Interactive's main draw, it's far from its only attraction. Guests can also square off in games of billiards and dine on a menu of classic grill fare.
