I'll be in Melville for a few days. Need some local info on rooms. Prefer 9' tables.

Thanks

The Mr. Cue Billiards is the closest decent place in Lindenhurst. The best place, IMO, is Raxx in Franklyn Square, but those are all about 20-30min drive from Melville. House of Lords was your best bet, but they closed. They had a good core group with action everyday, but I think the landlord screwed them, and they turned it into a dollar store! :-(

Listed below are the pool rooms with well kept tables and competitive players near Melville. There is a local tournament at Bay Shore on Thursdays and one in VIP Billiards on Wednesdays. There is also a Saturday tournament at Mr Cues, but I'm not sure if it is currently being ran. I'm sure there are other pool rooms around, but I'd reckon the ones below.

Is the pool hall on route 109 still open that was attached to a strip club?

You will be on the border of Nassua and Suffolk counties both east of NYC

If you want to venture into Queens you have some options, but depends on you and your allotted time. Go see Earl and friends at Steinway Billiards.

In Melville your driving to get to a 9' unless it is a homeroom.

best bet is Commack at a place called Felt. If your not a snob to barbox the Big Kahuna is setup with diamonds which will be a little closer.

LOL, I believe that place is closed too. I haven't been to that one since my college days, but I'm pretty sure its no longer there.

If you're game to go all the way to Steinway, you might want to stop into Carom Billiards. Thats an awesome room too.

76 Sunrise is the old location, 1191 Sunrise is the new location (One building east of the car wash). I'm sure of it, but you can always call to confirm. 😀

Just finished practicing at Bay Shore on the tight table. Rates are pretty cheap for NY

Been to Steinway and Corner pocket several times recently. The times i was there no one would play me. I have much better luck in Jersey at Clifton or Castle.

I second this also. Carom Cafe always has good action and if you want they got some awesome 3C tables too.

If its action you want and you're looking to do some cheap hustling, go to the bars instead. You'll have to deal with crappy equipment, but you'll probably still be able to out shoot any SOB in the bar. Easy enough to find someone with just a bit too much ego, and beer in those places. LOL. Again, CHEAP, but play your cards right and you can go to that well several times.

I gave up bar action and bar leagues a long time ago. Got tired of C and D players who have been playing for 30 years arguing about fouls and BS when they have know idea what their doing. I'd rather lose to a good player and learn something than beat some chump or drunk.

Carom Cafe, now that's a great idea. Next trip to the city I plan on going there

While not officially open yet, you are more than welcome to stop by. We have 9' Gold Crown 4's, 2 9' pro-cut Diamonds and Diamond Bar boxes. Next to Subway, entrance in the back of the building...

If you're playing in the daytime Bay Shore is one of the only rooms with 9 footers open in the daytime. Guys and Dolls in Valley Stream is probably the only other in Nassau that's open in the daytime but you have to feed the meter every half hour. At night you have Raxx in West Hempstead, Baldwin Billiards in Baldwin, and The Hub in Island Park If you can go to Queens the closest is Cue Bar on Bell Blvd, and a number of others I love Steinway and Carom. I usually take the LIRR to Jamaica and then the subway to Steinway to avoid traffic. By the way, besides Carom, Bay Shore also has 4 three Cushion billiard tables which they got from House of Lords when they closed.

Bay shore billiards is the way to go. IMHO

Mr cues closed

VIP is nice but I prefer bay shore. Great tables. As already pointed out. They have 3 cushion. 9 footers and some bar boxes

Some excellent players and quite a few old timers

Enjoy

Bay Shore is really nice. Played a few games of 1P and a a couple sets of 9 ball. One of the 3 cushion players was so smooth he made many shots look easy. It's a beautiful game when played well. Everyone is very nice there.

I'll be in Melville for a few days. Need some local info on rooms. Prefer 9' tables.

Thanks
Since you'll be staying on Long Island I assume you'll want to visit the city while you're there. If you do check out Amsterdam. I was there last week for the first time for the Preditor Tour and thought it was a really nice room.

Bay Shore Billiards and Raxx are pretty much equidistant to Melville, just in opposite directions

Tried to find Mr Cue at their new address but I guess they never opened up. I ended up at Bayshore Billiards and thoroughly enjoyed myself. 4 billiard tables, 1 10 ft table and 12 9ft tables. Prices were reasonable, music was low and the place was warm inside. I have been back a few times since and I will continue to support this place as much as I can.
