Like going grocery shopping or taking shots of pickle juice, playing pool is less enjoyable on an empty stomach. Fill bellies and sink billiard balls with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a pizza-and-pool package at Spot 5750 in Hollywood (up to a $55 total value). The package includes the following:
• One pizza (up to a $12.50 value)
• One pitcher of beer (a $20 value)
• One hour of pool (an $18 value)
• Valet parking (a $4 value)
Spot 5750 maintains an exclusive, hedonistic atmosphere with more than 60 plasma HDTVs in 25,000 square feet of space. Pop by for dinner or a midnight snack: the kitchen at Spot 5750 stays open until 1:30 a.m., fueling late-night revelry and helping owls to wake up in time for their favorite infomercials. Gourmet pizzas arrive in four flavors, including barbecue chicken, which blends three cheeses, red onion, and cilantro with its namesake poultry ($12.50), classic pepperoni ($11), a ham, sausage, pepperoni and ground beef meat lovers' pie ($12.50), and mixed vegetable, which mixes three cheeses, onion, pepper, and mushrooms ($12). Diners can wash down their meals with a pitcher of brew from the full bar, sharing glasses with friends or any stranger bold enough to bring an extra-long straw.
Spot 5750's opulent environment features plush, leathery furniture, exposed-brick walls, and shiny metal tables. Ten pool tables are spread out near framed vintage movie posters, which motivate players with Old Hollywood moxie and inspire unconscious competitions with Humphrey Bogart.
