I'm considering traveling from Washington to visit. When is the grand opening? I want to be there when all of the girls are still working there.

I watched as much of the video as I could. Suggestion for the next video: Say the name of the establishment and where it is located at the beginning! I figured out eventually he was in Phoenix (where I don't know), but he should realize not everybody on facebook lives in Phoenix and already knows about his pool room.

He can still play, but business will come first.

First of all, I love the name, Freezer's Ice House. Very inviting when you live in an extremely hot climate like Phoenix has. I even like the exterior colors (blue and white), that are traditional ice house colors from years gone by. Everything about the interior is well done and well thought out, down to his extra rooms that feature a cool bar area and a quiet dining area.

This is a very special place, unlike any other "room" I've seen before. I wish Scott the best of luck (not that he needs it) and years of enjoyment. Good preparation is what ultimately leads to success and he's covered all his bases here.
The place looks amazing. It must be the most unique pool room ever created. I really enjoyed the video. Scott seems very smart, and very professional. Seems like a nice guy too. I hope the business is going good. Seems like a great area of town.

I like to give my regulars (the pool players) a monthly pass (maybe $60-75) and they can play for free during the slow daytime hours. They would have to give up their table when it gets busy at night, say 7 PM. I've had as many as sixty monthly's and it paid a lot of bills.

I know he has to have an ATM machine! That's a must for a business like this. Having access to extra money means extra money spent here. A nice digital jukebox (no gangster rap!) is a huge moneymaker as well. Pop-A-Shot basketball and Air Hockey are two very popular games if you can find a location for them. Believe it or not, Ping Pong is also a good addition to any poolroom, again if you have room. People like to play more than just pool all the time. That's what makes the huge Dave and Busters do so well. They have everything!

Of course the bottom line for a business like this is liquor sales. If he serves good food and sells a lot of booze, he will do all right. Just be VERY careful about checking ID's and who is actually drinking. There will be underage college kids who want to drink with their buddies. If you allow that to happen, you can get your liquor license suspended. Then you're toast!
Hopefully his partners / investors helped him purchase the building, so that he does not have to pay the high rent prices. It is better to own, right? I do not know.

Scott's game is gong to go in the sewer, and he is gonna be so damn busy, unless he pays someone to run the place, which I don't think is going to happen.

I imagine if it weren't for ASU being down the street, no one in their right mind would open a pool room in that area.
He's taking a big chance IMO.
I do wish him the best of luck, but I don't see this room being open for more than five years.
You can dress up the place as much as you want, but one has to realize that the demand for these kind of places is not as it once was.

Another U.S. economic shift is a-coming and it ain't gonna be pretty.
Again, I wish the Freezer all the best.
Yes, do business as if there is no tomorrow, Scott.
If the place has a good restaurant in it (not to mention all of the other things there are to do in that place, for the entire family), then that will hopefully bring in the non pool players too. I hope you are wrong, and it will be a great success.

If he wants to do a monthly for the "players" i would keep it quiet, although most fun players wouldn't do it anyway. Once you discount something it cheapens it forever.

Yeah, I think that putting the pool hall near a university is a good idea. There are a ton of college kids always coming into this place cakked Jakes (near UNCG), in Greensboro. The place seems to be very popular, and they charge $8 an hour for pool. If the place has a really good restaurant attached, then it should be successful, right?

I hope all the tables arent pro-cut pockets. Non serious pool player would have a tough time playing and wont enjoy the it as much.

Hope Scott and the pool hall a lot of success.
