I was talking to an old timer last night and he maintained that Cochran's billiards was on the east side (the Ferry Building side) of the old Palace Billiards on market street.

I seem to remember it as being down a couple of blocks on market on the west side of Palace.

Any old time Bay Area folks here that can confirm this?

Don't know if this was the original Cochran's, but his last location was at 1020(approx) Market St; that's near the corner of 6th and Market. The place stood empty for 15 or 20 years, until Tony Annigonni and his partners reopened it as the Q Club. It is still in business, 5 owners later, as Hollywood Billiards. It's not the same sq footage though as Cochran's and the Market St entrance, is not usable. The Palace was a block away, at 945 Market, opposite the End of Mason St.

wasn't it on Golden Gate, next to a fenced lot, upstairs, which is now Hollywood Billiards?
