GREAT PLACE FOR POOL – This place is like a good ole dive type joint. If you like pool, jeans, sneakers and a casual night out, this is the place. If you are the designated driver, make sure you find the free parking two streets over.. you don
Fun place to play pool – I've been coming here for years. The pool tables are great and not too expensive. There's a free parking lot a couple blocks away on Delacey St. and their chicken tenders and vanilla milkshakes are great! Fun to take a date who doesn't like to wear heels.
Serious pool hall meets sporty dive bar at this subterranean Old Town hang. – The Scene
Only a short jaunt down Mills Alley from its parent burger joint--Old Town's beloved Jake's--this basement bar is also a Pasadena favorite. Falling somewhere between a pool hall and local watering hole, the bar's spacious feel complements the laid-back mentality of its patrons. Neon beer signs and motorcycles on display add an edgy touch to the mixed atmosphere.
Billiard junkies, sports fans, college kids and the after-work throngs all regularly enjoy cheap drinks during happy hour. "Monday Night Football" is featured on three big screens around the bar, where a boisterous crowd of friends and singles gathers. The 15 well-maintained pool tables are rarely occupied by sharks, but rather, couples on dates who will politely wait their turn when two tables' cues get too close. An '80s and '90s jam-packed jukebox, various arcade games and munchies from the full menu upstairs satisfy any remaining hankerings.
Nice dive. – Ok this place is a little hidden but a good find if your looking for a little pool hall that's not too crowded but still has a fun feeling to it. Just look for Jake's Burger stand out front...go down the alley a little ways until you find the stairs to Jake's Billiard's. It's a cool place to hang out!
Hip – This place is a great place to shoot pool and to have a drink. Eat upstairs and go downstairs to watch games, drink and play billards. Their specialty drinks are worth trying.
Good Food – I havent been down stairs to the billiards room, however I do go here for their food. Their Chicken Strips are really good. Large pieces, white meat, and great breading. Their burgers are pretty good as well, though not the best. The service upstairs is good. Oh, and their strawberry shakes are good as well.
Best Pool Tables in Old Town – I enjoy going out dancing or going for drinks but I am very serious when it comes to playing pool. This place has the most consistent pool tables in old town. Table prices are comparable for Old Town and the food is good to go with it.
