Amsterdam Billiards and Bar
Inside this old-fashioned billiard hall, brick walls, oil paintings, and plush rugs mute the sounds of ricocheting stripes and solids. Amsterdam Billiards has five forms of table entertainment, but pool reigns supreme—25 Brunswick tables cover the space in rectangles of green, and in 2010, the hall was named the Best Pool Hall in New York by New York magazine.
However, the hall also has ping-pong tables, a foosball table, three pinball machines, and a light-up beer pong table. Between games of their choice, guests can sidle up to the zinc bar for a glass of wine, a bucket of beer, or some old-school bar bites. If you'd rather watch a game than play, then simply look at one of the 17 flatscreen televisions, or ask one of the dart players if you can caddy for them.
