Readers' Choice: City Billiards

If your idea of a night of stick is to order up a couple of pitchers and stack quarters in the slots to free up the balls, by all means, don't go to Jimmy's. Owned and operated by former World Champion Jimmy "The Kid" Wetch, Jimmy's treats the game--and those who play it--with the utmost respect. The house cues are straight and true, the lighting low and perfectly focused, the tables as spotless and well manicured as the greens at Augusta. With 26 tables, 15 of them nine-footers, the place strikes the right balance between spaciousness and intimacy, allowing competitive games of eight-ball, nine-ball, or one pocket to flourish long into the wee hours of the morning. Obviously there are games where more than pride is at stake, but there are also customers who simply want to indulge their love of the sport under the best possible conditions. The cost is reasonable at $3.25 an hour per person from 11:00 to 6:00 during the day, climbing to $4.75 per person from 6:00 in the evening to 4:00 in the morning. (There's a special of $10 per person for a 6:00 to 11:00 p.m. stint.) And yeah, there are even two coin-operated tables. But no alcohol.

One of the things that we must also consider is the cleanliness of the place. "Jimmy's Pro Billiards" based of what I read, I like it. No alcohol, and everyone has this word "respect".
