The Cornet Pocket lodges pool sharks, upscale-pub-grub imbibers, and dart sharpshooters in a hybrid pool-hall-cum-restaurant environment. Adjoined to the dining chambers, a billiards room shelters 13 Connelly drop-pocket tables flanked by cue-wielding participants and dejected 16 balls watching each round. The Corner Pocket’s appetizer menu dispenses a wide array of upscale pub-style appetizers including cornmeal-fried wings slathered in sweet and spicy chili sauce ($9.95/full dozen), waffle fries drenched in melted-cheese dip and scallions ($6.50), and turrets of beer-battered onions rings ($5.95).
Beyond billiards, the space boasts four dart boards, seven flat-screen TVs, and a 10-foot projection screen broadcasting the latest sporting contests or celebrity thumb-war tournaments. An array of local and nationally touring musicians frequently graces The Corner Pocket’s stage; patrons can consult the event schedule for a list of upcoming performances.
