What time does your Pool room close? - 05-04-2009, 12:16 AM

Just curious what time your local pool room or rooms close. My local place is changing to their summer hours and closing earlier. It has some folks upset, so I was wondering if other pool halls do that also. I understand the reason, although I disagree with it. Whats your opinion on it?

I started building cues because I hate my money.

The room I go to closes at 3AM on weekdays and 4AM on Friday and Saturday. If anything, I still think they're closing too soon!

BTW, grats on the 400th post!

Room owners have to be sensitive to what is really going on in their area. Opening and closing hours in a business can be "self fulfilling prophesies".
I have seen places where the rule was that after a certain hour if it got slow they would close up. Could be 11:30- could be 12:30 what ever. You have to keep consistent hours even if no one is there.

If someone gets in the car and drive to your place only to find the door locked, they will assume you always close early or you don't keep trusted hours.. Either way you will kill off your business yourself. I owned a room and was open 24 hours. I had to stop serving beer at 6 am but could start again at 7 am. Amazingly there are a lot of people who are out and about in the middle of the night. I would often make as much from midnight to 6 as I made the rest of the opening hours, especially on weekends.

Either way you have to keep open as many hours and you can. Like I said, the hours you keep may determine your business and there may be business out there you didn't know about because you closed in their face.

One that I frequent is open 24 hours and runs a red eye special. You can play from 2 am to 11 am for 5 bucks. Most of the other rooms close at 2 am.

Mine NEVER closes! Only problem is we have only one table, so there may be a waiting list.

Depends on the county your in here. In Williamson county, they can only sell alcohol till 12 midnight. So all the poolhalls and bars close at midnight. In Travis county you can sell till 2am, and the poolhalls and bars close at 2am. There was a place in Travis county that would stay open till 4am, but they have changed owners and close at 2am again.

yeah, no drinking in here past 2am.
You would be amazed though. The other night there was a race to 6 for $700 1pkt set. At 2am there was 19 people in the place still and at 4 am there was about 12. Not that alot of us were really spending money. Most of us were railing the action.
