    Barley's Sports Bar and Lounge (Permanently Closed)
    Why go to a dingy pool hall when there’s BARLEY’S SPORTS BAR AND LOUNGE? In the heart of downtown, it’s a bar, restaurant and live-music venue with a 22-table pool room. An easygoing location with a pleasant, neighborhood vibe, the sturdy tables offer pockets of competitivemore...
    Why go to a dingy pool hall when there’s BARLEY’S SPORTS BAR AND LOUNGE? In the heart of downtown, it’s a bar, restaurant and live-music venue with a 22-table pool room. An easygoing location with a pleasant, neighborhood vibe, the sturdy tables offer pockets of competitive fun. Let’s hope the charm of Barley’s remains the same as the surrounding area continues to morph daily. Rack ’em up, Joe, and stay awhile. less...

    Mr. Cue'S Billiards & Burgers
    Ya think ya got balls enough to play where the pros play? Well, roll on over to MR. CUE'S BILLIARDS & BURGERS and put some English on it.

    Ya think ya got balls enough to play where the pros play? Well, roll on over to MR. CUE'S BILLIARDS & BURGERS and put some English on it. Johnny Archer is the house pro and he can often be found playing for fun, in high-stakes tournaments or patiently instructing budding hustlers and novices. The place isn't a palace, it's your basic shopping center pool room with all the ambiance and panache of the players of the moment. But that sea of tables beckons the competitive side like a siren to a lost sailor. Rack 'em up. less...

    If you weren't already aware of THE INDEPENDENT, you might miss it. Nestled above Apres Diem in the Midtown Promenade, the Independent, formerly known as Duprees Tavern, pits a classy/quasi hotel bar vibe against a pool hall/game room setting. The Independent is where the inner-Perimeter young urban pros play darts, shoot pool and eat kick-ass Wisconsin cheese sandwiches while discussing "The Simpsons" or a movie they just saw downstairs at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema.

The 20 Brunswick Gold Crown tables beckon all types of players, and those who don't care to cue can hang in the dining room among the comfy couches and chairs, where you can play table shuffleboard, darts and foosball.

    211 E. Trinity Place, Decatur 404-373-0063 The appeal of this Decatur billiards hall is obvious: the 20 Brunswick Gold Crown tables, separate smoking and non-smoking rooms, and a good selection of beer. The $10 an hour to play pool is worth it (and if you're taking a long lunch Tuesday through Friday, you can play for free). The bar room also houses a dining area, complete with couches and cozy chairs. Foosball, darts and shuffleboard draw a crowd as well, but the well-maintained pool tables are the reason to stick around. less...
