Hey, folks. I was wondering what the az forums believe the best poolroom in Austin, TX is?
I've tried Warehouse billiards, and it was fine, but it doesn't seem like a place for serious players.
Thanks in advance.

I'm new in town also. Warehouse was just ok. I'll be checking out Skinny Bob's soon enough.

My vote would go to Skinny Bobs. Several notable rooms in Austin have closed over the years. If you swing down to Houston there is Big Tymes, Bogies and Legends. I have been hearing there is a strong 8 ball tournament at Outlaw Ray's in Crosby. Houston also has several good snooker and 3 cushion rooms.

It's been a year or two since I was at Skinny Bobs. Great place. Last time I went I could hardly breath from the cigarette smoke. I know they remodeled recently. Did they go smoke-free?

Hahaha, for sure! What's up!
I've been a member here for 14 years. Mostly I lurk though.


Speaking of Austin without being a total fan boy lol I saw you years ago at CapCity Comedy Club off 183.

Funniest things I remember about that show:

"You have a shitty job and I have a dollar!!" That ....and the thing about the lion and sex! Funny stuff....some where I have seen Kevin Booth's videos of the show from around that time too but it was not the night we went.

Welcome to Aust!n!

All diamonds, it's a top notch room, a literal diamond in the rough when you arrive lol, all the pros hang there for that Saturday tournament, and the big 10 ball pot
