Houston's Top 3 Billiards Establishments

One of the main highlights of Houston Nightlife is the great billiards scene of this southern U.S. city. The first thing to do after checking into your Houston Bed and Breakfast is to head out to one of Houston's 3 top billiards establishments: Barney's Saloons, Clicks Billiards or Slick Willie's Family Pool Hall.

Barney's Saloons
1702 West Loop North
Houston, Texas 77008

Barney's Saloons has been a part of Houston Nightlife since 1967, and it has 7 locations around Houston. Each one is identified by a number: #3, #5, #6, #9, #12, #16 and #20. Barney Saloon #3 is located at the West Loop North and BBOnline recommends it because it's a great spot to grab a cold beer and enjoy one of the most affordable pool halls in the whole city. The #3 is open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m., except on Sundays when it opens from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Two of the best nights to visit #3 are Monday and Wednesday, because you can play all the pool you want for just $5. On top of that, on both weekday nights there is a $2.50 special all night on Well, Call and domestic longnecks. If you're planning to drink, it's better to take a cab to and from your Houston Inn.

Clicks Billiards
13380 Northwest Fwy
Houston, Texas 77040

Clicks Billiards is another great option when taking on the Houston Nightlife, any day of the week. This is a favorite place for locals in the Fairbanks and Northwest Crossing neighborhoods. Just like the Barney's Saloon chain, Clicks Billiards has a long tradition in Houston and this particular establishment opened in 1994. Clicks Billiards stands out as one of the more upscale pool halls because of their 9 foot Brunswick Gold Crown billiard tables, which are covered with a Simonis 860 cloth. The combination of these 2 elements provides the closest experience to what the pros actually use. Besides the great pool tables, there is another great reason to visit Clicks Billiards: the HD TVs. Clicks has a 150-inch high definition projection screen and more than 40 HD and LCD televisions that are the favorites of local sport fans.

Slick Willie's Family Pool Hall
1200 Westheimer Street
Houston, Texas 77006
Phone: (713) 522-2525

When travelling to Houston with family and looking for a fun place to grab a bite and play some games with the kids, Slick Willie's Family pool hall on the historic Montrose District of eastern Houston is a great choice. The Montrose District is a great way to spend a whole afternoon with the kids (or teens) and Slick Willie's is a good choice to end the day before heading back to your Houston Bed and Breakfast. This establishment offers 2 environments: before 9:00 p.m. it's for all ages, while after 9:00 p.m., guests under 18 years of age require a parent or legal guardian. Slick Willie's has more than 20 pool tables and several other games such as pinball, hoops and darts.
