I don't live there anymore, so I am not completely up to date on the poolhall goings on, but if I were busing into Denver I would pretty much go only to Shakespeares. You will be close to lower downtown (although on the other side of the creek) and it is a nice room. Lotta pool tables. Top notch billiards tables. Restaurant and bar. And if you've been sentenced to a week in Estes Park, and have to go back on a bus, you will need plenty alcohol. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

In lower downtown I highly recommend the large, ice cold, bone dry martinis at the Cruise Room at the Oxford Hotel.

Shakespeare's is easily Denver's greatest pool hall. Good players, tables, etc. They have some three cushion tables there...I once saw a guy run a *nine*, which would make World Champion 3C players grin all week along.

In LoDo I'd try Wyncoop Brewery. Plenty of tables, great beer and food, but fewer serious players. More of a social spot than strictly pool. Lots of good looking women in that joint.

Outside of those two, there's hundreds of lesser-known pool halls. You can find some good players and action at Billiards Institute. But you really should check out Shakespeare's.

The guy just might have been Allen Gilbert.

There are some other players around there capable of an occasional 9 tho I think.

<font color="blue"> No doubt Shakespeare’s is nice. If you are looking for action the place to go is Table Stakes. This is where the player are at. </font color>

You can get into Shakespeare's no problem. Just can't buy any booze. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
