My son is recently started working at a pool hall as a manager (basically second in command to the owner) that does pretty good business but has very little "player" presence or draw for tournaments. They have a kitchen that has not been opened much lately. Pretty basic bar, nothing fancy. 10 9 foot tables are furniture tables, with old rails, but are clean and the cloth is replaced when needed. 3 more 7 foot Valley tables by the bar and in another room. Has anyone did a full room table upgrade and seen improvements in the amount of players that brought in? Is it better to save the money and try to develop some stronger relationships with the local known people that put on tournaments in other rooms? Some other place to make changes? He wants to make the food better with a window to the outdoor patio and moving the bar, with getting 7" Diamonds in place of the Valleys, which I don't think will make any difference. The pool players stick with the 10 9 footers, the 7 footers just get the bangers. Getting the food going again I think is a good idea though, but relocating the bar is a bit much, I think new tables would be a more welcome change for the players.
