Forge tables by Goldenwest . Not exactly Gold Crown or Diamond . They do have Diamond bar boxes .I went by Hard Times Bellflower yesterday. Same story. Peering through the gap in the front door I could still see the lit up jukebox and now there is a ceiling light hanging down over the first row of amateur tables next to the jukebox. And I could see about four tables in the next row but my view ended there. It is still a ghost town with what appears to be filled with all the tables. Wouldn't take much except operating capital to reopen.
I guess Danny K's is my next stop. I think Sunday and Monday is $4 per hour pool. I must have a psychological problem because to me it just doesn't seem like a pool hall. That's because it isn't. It's a sports bar with a significant pool aspect. I'd say 10 or 12 9-footers. Theses tables are just okay.. I can't get the vibe I'm looking for. But I will definitely stop in to Good Times in Lakewood in hopes of seeing some of the old Hard Times regulars.
Dk's has the longest ongoing almost daily tournaments in California . They have league nights too .
It is a pool hall with a good kitchen and bar .
But, it's not quite like Hard Times or Griff's.
