View Full Version : Cincinnati pool rooms

Will be in ciny on the 3,4,5 for the vtwin expo at the cinergy center, most of the time will be work related but wouldnt mind hitting a few balls perhaps in the evening. Would like to know if there is a room within walking distance or close bye the center. Boss didnt spring for car rental this time as we are staying on site, dont know if its a good idea to be walking around late at night or not. Any ideas or suggestions would help. thanks

There's a place called Jekyl's at 1140 Main St. That's about 6 blocks north of the Cinergy Center. It's in an entertainment district so there are other things to do if you can't get a game.

I would recommend a cab. You could probably walk there safely but why chance it.

Definitely do not go past 12th street, day or night.

Or you could cab to Jillian's right across the river in Covington KY. It's a nice place, kinda like Dave and Buster's.

Not a lot of serious shooters there but there have been some that play there. It's in a pretty safe neighborhood and the equipment is good.

re: safety

Downtown is quite safe, south of 8th street

Tina's is a cool bar down around Third street

3rd and Vine pub is a nice little place.

There's a brewpub on Fountain Suare

Don't go to the "Under Construction" bar unless you're gay.
