In the Cincy Area... it ranges from the high end of the Jillians and Dave and Busters ($10/hour) to as low as $3.00 per hour..

What is it in your area?

Tom...we pay $3.60 an hour to play on Gold Crowns that are in great shape.. Seeing that they are going to be 40 years old..we just had a Joss tour event on them a few months ago and everyone loved them. and thought they played great........mike....By the way.. the room owners wipe the rails down after every use and brush them also.. no dirty hands with them.....

In Philly, you can expect to pay ~$5/hr. Mosconi's on Oregon Avenue (in South Philly near the biggest dollar store Fred has ever seen) is $3.75/hr. Drexelline is $5/hr (or is it $5.50?). Tacony Palmyra is the same. River City in Manayunk is $5/hr (at least it was), but that place is a dive anyway. South Jersey rates are comparable.

Here in SE Kansas $2.00 an hour. The only pool hall in town isn't very fancy, in fact it's not fancy at all. The tables are decent though. In Joplin Mo. at a very nice facility (an hours drive away), I think it is more like $2.50.

I can remember when I thought $2 an hour was a lot. I think that was in 1960. In eastern CT it's $7 to $9 within 20 miles. That's why I sometimes drive 45 miles to play for $5 for three hours in the afternoon ($5.50/hour at night). Otherwise I go out to the garage where it's cold. Ken in CT

When I lived in Toronto, it was hard to find anything under $10.00/hr (of course that's Canadian $!). Since I've moved up North, the one decent pool hall (about 1 hour drive - 25 black crowns) is $5.00/hr during the day, and $7.50/hr at night. But the real deal is the Gold Crown Snooker tables at the local legion which are .50/hr!!!! That's right, half a buck/hr! Played for 4 hours today and it cost me a whole $2.00!

Ahhh, sometimes life is good!

Oh, and did I mention that they give me free coffee?

Going back tommorrow to work on those long pots!

Carol in NYC,
I'm going to visit my son for his birthday in NYC.
Where's a good place to play near West 57th St?

03-06-2002, 09:07 AM
Here in west central ohio, $3-5 per hour

Hi Steve,
You can go to Amsterdam Billiards on the west side (77th and Amsterdam). They run between 7- 14.00 an hour I believe but they offer "Power Plays" for between 19.00-29.00 for a block of time that varies depending on the time of day....it is a good deal. Or you can head downtown to Corner Billiards at 4th Ave and 11th street. I am not sure of the hourly rates (they charge regualrs and league members differently) but on Sundays they have a deal of 9.00 an hour for up to 4 players(though it's also 9.00 for 1 player so it's only a deal if you have a game)...they are reasonable though and it's a very nice room. If you realy want to go cheap there is Broadway Billiards on 21st btwn Broadway and 5th Ave. It's 4.00 and hour(I think) and a bit of a dive. You can usaully get action there.

Regarding the Forum Question: I pay around 5.00 and hour or sometimes less or more, I never know actually, it depends on who is at the desk!
I know of a pool rooms that have a monthly members deal which I think is a great ideal. Ex: Hollywood Billiards charges I believe 60.00 a month and they play unlimited hours until 8pm. So if you can play durring the day it's a great deal... I'd love that!!

The prices you are quoting are scary....

how about 2.75/hour/person and 5.00 unlimited play from noon til 7

That's the price at both halls I shoot from.

Here in the Queen City (Charlotte Nc) there are at least three (3) rooms that have "free pool" from 12-7 PM and 3.50 per Hr. afterwards....these are "membership rooms but the fee is only 5.00 per yr. all have 9 Ft.AMF PlayMasters with 860 Simonis and shinny Aramith balls. One sports bar and grille with 9 Ft. Connelly's offers "free pool" during all the big afternoon sporting events. All are smokey as hell but this is where they grow the stuff.

Stickman, I've not only heard about Parsons, but been there. Other towns in the area, Fort Scott, Pittsburg, Nevada Mo, etc. Sometime I'd like to visit Winfield/ Dexter area because that's where my ancestors were born and raised. I have the map plots of land they owned, and was just looking at one from the 1880's. Small world huh? But if you really want to see a small town, look directly north at Rantoul, it's SE of Ottawa. That's what I call small and lived on a farm near there untill early teens. Later years on the road I played in some of those small towns.

My, it is a small world. Well if you've been in any of the local pool facilities, you know we're not spoiled with luxurious pool palaces. LOL I'm just happy to find a decent table. If you're ever in the area again, e-mail me and I'll let you give me some lessons. /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif
