Historically, green felt has only had two applications: lowering friction on pool tables’ surfaces and giving life to Kermit the Frog. Get felt up with today’s Groupon: for $26, you get a billiards outing at Society Billiards + Bar (up to a $65 total value). The outing includes the following:
- Two hours of pool time (up to a $39 value)
- Four beers (a $6.50 value each)<p>
Clacking pool balls echo from Society Billiards + Bar’s field of custom-made Diamond tables, which anchor a renovated venue touted by Billiards Digest as “a glossy new gem” in its Top 10 Best New Billiards Rooms article in 2010. Gleaming Super Aramith pro balls glide across smooth Simonis cloth as players’ heels click upon the interior’s burnished wood floors. Draft suds from Stella Artois and Blue Moon accompany mixed drinks at Society’s full-service bar, fueling gameplay and adding vehemence to corner-pocket prophecies delivered from atop stools.
Society Billiards + Bar’s rates vary throughout the week.
