Best Pool and Music Combination

By Indus on 5/8/2003

  • Overall Rating: 6
  • No, I would not go back!

This trendy pool place is laid back, comes complete with a restaurant, a bar, a lounge area (with, get this, a cool sofa that looks like a pool table!)and in the center of it all, the billiard tables. Its not a very serious pool hall and you get the feeling like you're just part of the background, serving as entertainment for the swanky, plush, albeit small lounge. The drinks are much too pricy, but I have to admit that the DJ at this place was one of the best club DJs I have heard, dishing out some very sharp trance/techno/ambient music giving the place its mood. But even for a lounge lizard like me, when I feel upto pool, I like going somewhere with a bigger focus on the pool, and cheaper drinks.

I have been to Slate for drinks several times. Last night was the first time I tried there food and I was extremely impressed. Everything came out with large portions which was great for sharing with my group and the food tasted fresh and hot out of the oven! i will def. be back to drink and eat again.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
