The owners of Society Billiards have built a pool hall for everyone¯from the most grizzled hustlers to the greenest rubes. The bar is bright, big, friendly, and the Diamond tables are the same that the pros use. But even though Society Billiards has a serious pedigree (there's a pro shop and in in-house pro), there are absolutely zero pretensions about the place—the staff is incredibly friendly, there are leagues starting up for every level of player, and there are even regulation "bar pool" tables in the back if you're going for a smaller game. The food and specialty drinks are delicious, and change regularly to stay seasonable: the paninis are big and thick, and cocktails like the Bullshot Martini (Bulleit Burbon, maple syrup) and Cider House Margarita (tequila and apple cider). The rates for the pool tables vary depending on the time and day, but they're always reasonable, with a $4 draft happy hour. If you head there late, you might just catch some pros going to work.
