Soupy,

Can't vouch for Jeff City, which ain't exactly a happening burg, but if you go 30 miles up the road to Columbia there's a nice small room and grill on Ninth St. near the university called Booche's, which I used to frequent some when I went to school at Mizzou.

They've got (or had on my last visit a few years ago) 5 or 6 ancient drop-pocket tables, a couple of old snooker tables and a 3-cushion table. One of the owners, Mick, is a pretty decent 3-cushion player ... I saw him run 8 or 9 one night and he consistently would run 4 or 5. Great burgers, too, served only on wax paper.

And a few doors down the street from there is another, more modern and typical pool hall, Columbia Billiards, I think.

There's a really nice place in the western suburbs of St. Louis called Chesterfield Billiards.

They used to have a decent website but I just checked it out and it seems to be under construction.
