What You'll Get
Normally, players who wish to snack between pool games are forced to leave and cook almond-crusted sole with a Louisiana remoulade in the alley. Cue up a game and put hunger behind the eight ball with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $25 worth of contemporary dining in the retro-futuristic Continental Modern Pool Lounge in the Rosslyn neighborhood of Arlington.
The menu at Continental Modern Pool Lounge is contemporary and fresh, putting some English on dishes. Grab a sampling of appetizers like the wings (jerk, spicy, or honey-barbecue, $8.95), fried calamari with jalapenos ($9.95), and bubble bread (French-garlic-bread loaf with gorgonzola and mozzarella, $8.50). For a one-on-one dinner or tournament-stomach play, Continental offers sandwiches, salads, and baskets, so rack up a doggie basket (two beer-soaked, all-beef, grilled hot dogs with your choice of condiments, $7.95) or a crabby crabcake sandwich (with lettuce, tomato, and onion on a Kaiser roll, $9.95) and incinerate cuisine cravings.
Before the meal hits your face, Continental's bright, fantastic décor will beam amazement directly into your visual cortex. The six competition-sized pool tables, two skeeball lanes, four shuffleboard spots, Ping-Pong, and dartboards are dispersed throughout the retro designs. '50s futurism and a hand-painted mural adorn the main bar and its booths, and tiki-chic encompasses the '60s-era green room. Jane Fonda fans can ensconce themselves in pillows beneath the pink walls and spun-plastic lamps of the Barbarella lounge, and the blue-toned World's Fair room provides a great place to eat without accidentally swallowing a pool cue.
This Groupon is not valid with Happy Hour or any other specials.
- "Dinner at a pool hall" sounds like a sure-fire way to raise your cholesterol: Images of greasy burgers, nachos and cheese-heavy pizza dance in your head. Not so at Continental…a menu of tapas and sandwiches that work well for dinner or for a quick bite when it's someone else's turn to rack the balls. – Fritz Hahn, Washington Post
- This is a fun pool hall in Rosslyn with lots of mod decor and a great bar. – Jennifer S., Yelp
