Places to play in Aurora, CO - 05-12-2007, 04:24 PM

I am moving to Aurora, CO next month and am looking for a place to join some sort of league (TAP, BCA, APA, Etc...). My only stipulation is that the league play be on 8' or 9' tables.

Thanks in advance for all of the help.

-Jimmy

If that's the one in the basement, I wouldn't recommend it unless they have different people running the leagues now. When I played in a league there it was so poorly run that it wasn't any fun at all. (1999 or so) The owner and the manager were terrible too. But hopefully they've moved on and sold it.

Cheers,
RC

A pool hall in a basement? You're apparently confusing Rack 'em with another pool hall.

It's only a couple of steps down. I could be confusing it with another one, but it's right in that same area if I am.

...Nope. After looking it up on the internet and finding pictures. That's the place. Worst, most stupidly run league I've ever played on. If they have changed ownership maybe it's gotten better. The league I played in was run by the owner and his wife/girlfriend...They had no clue as to what they were doing and zero customer service skills. I will never set foot in there again.

Since you pushed, here's the story:

If you go there and it sucks, don't blame me.

Hopefully the new owners are better.

Has any one tried Table Steaks East? The website looks promising.

It is OK. Not my favorite. I don't get to Denver all that much anymore, so take it FWIW. Might be good for leagues maybe, I don't know. I played there a couple of times when I was there and it was convenient. Was fine to hit balls around and have drinks.

Of course the best Aurora room is long gone and didn't have leagues. Lousy neighborhood. No alcohol, unless you brown bagged it from the liquor store next door. Great poolroom. It became a church the last I knew. So sad.

I go to the Rack 'em club four times a week so I'm in a much better position to comment on this club than you are. As I said earlier, this club is under new management and appears to be doing just fine.
It sucked, the league sucked, the bartender sucked, the owner sucked. I posted a plain jane "do not recommend post" and you called me a liar on it. So I posted why I said what I said.

I censored my post.

Cheers,
RC

I don't care for that one much either, but that's another story. You picked my two least favorite places in Denver area to ask for a recommendation on.

Rack Em has Diamond nine footers and is well run. Forget the old owners.

Joe has leagues, and you can also get played. Good place - check it out.

I am a steakhorse well known through out the country and those are some the best playing 9' Diamond tables in the country. Im not saying the action is good but the the tables play great. I was there a almost 2 years ago just under new ownership. If you are looking for 9" tables then this place has the best tables in Denver that are not shimmed up.
Thank you
