West Side Billiards

A new poolroom/ bar/ gameroom has opened @103rd St. and Ricker Rd. in Jacksonville, FL.

The owner, Basel ”Brian” Hababa, has invested a large chunk of change to make a fun place for pool players.  There are other games, as in table tennis, foosball table, 9 HDTV’s and all the sports channel for all the big games.  IMHO, the ladies behind the bar, serving us, look pretty damn good, too.  (don’t tell my wife).  Currently, they only serve snacks w/ drinks, but do serve beer, on tap and bottles……even have my favorite, Sam Adams ‘Boston Lager’!  Brian says you can bring in your to-go sacks or order delivery like subs or pizza and eat it there………nowhere else can ya do that!!!

IMHO, the tables aren’t commercial grade (not as stable, as in heavy) but play good.  I was really impressed that he hired 2 Brunswick table mechanics from the Brunswick Mfg. to install and put the Simonis 860 cloth on the tables.  A nice room and ppl should check it out…..OH! if you are drinking and getting good service………….don’t forget to tell the girls how good they were, with $$$$$, NOT Hugs!! 

Master’s League played last Fri and tomorrow the Master’s playoffs start @ 6:00pm till we’re finished!  The bar has special 1/2 price on pool table rentals thru 10/ 31.  Brian also wants to get APA, TAP and or BCA League nights started ASAP so Ken, Johnny and Kevin need to get to work on that issue…….you know who ya are!!

(13) 8′ Brunswick ‘Competition’ tables and (2) 9′ Brunswick ‘Competition’ tables…..all w/ Simonis 860 cloth, Brunswick ball sets, Brunswick house cues and wood racks.  Unfortunately, the grey color Simonis cloth takes a bit to get used to (I am a fan of Simonis green and Simonis tournament blue), however, the bar is color co-ordinated (LOL!)
