The Billiard Club
Sunrise, FL 33323
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
What you may not know is that nestled in the "Oasis" - the outdoor division of the mall, near Ron Jon Surf Shop and the movie theaters - is a complete sports bar and pool hall, offering the perfect spot to take a break from the madness. The Billiard Club has two other locations in Miami Lakes and Davie, but the Sawgrass location has developed its own fan base of concertgoers (BankAtlantic Center is right next door, so expect preconcert specials and afterparties), mall walkers, and sports fans. UFC fans, rejoice: All paid fights air live at the Billiard Club, but you better arrive early, because seats fill fast. Nearby employees also frequent the spacious, brick-walled locale for "in the biz" specials, including free pool Sunday and Monday. And while you can take your pick of more than 40 specialty cocktails, the drink specials may be a better bet: Wednesday is "Bucket Night" (four for $10), and it's happy hour every day from open to 8 p.m., when you can get two-for-one Amstel Light, Miller Lite, and Heineken drafts as well as double well drinks for the price of a single. There's a sprawling menu of munchies to choose from; popular choices include standard appetizer fare like wings, calamari, and spinach dip - and the Phillys are always in high-demand. Come in Monday through Friday and order a drink or food item and get a free hour of pool. Night owl? Head to the Billiard Club on Friday or Saturday nights, when pool is free from 2 to 4 a.m.
