When shooting for the win in high-stakes pool, players may choose to call "inside pocket," allowing them to stuff the 8-ball in their coat and dash out of the pool hall. Go for an unconventional shot with today’s Groupon: for $26, you get two hours of billiards for two players and four beers at Society Billiards + Bar (up to a $65 value).
Ranked No. 2 in Billiards Digest's 2010 Best New Room hierarchy, Society Billiards + Bar combines 19 top-grade pool tables with a bar full of favorite tonics. Overhead lights serenely illumine custom-made Diamond tables and their players, capturing the ambiance of a classic pool hall while filtering out the blinding smoke and oldfangled harpsichord music. Dueling duos get two hours to flatten the felt with rousing games of 8-ball, 9-ball, and 18-ball pickup while toasting to improbable shots with a quenching quartet of beers from taps dispensing favorites such as Blue Moon, Stella Artois, and Brooklyn Lager. Society Billiards + Bar remains open until 3 a.m. Sundays–Thursdays and 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, facilitating late-night sipping and cue fencing.
Society Billiards + Bar's rates fluctuate throughout the week.
