River City Pockets
Phoenix, AZ 85032
Phoenix New Times' Description
There are plenty of pool tables in River City - 13 regulation-sized tables and half a dozen six-footers to be exact. Surrounding the L-shaped bar and pushing the dartboards and video games to the outer edges, the felt-topped tables in this spacious oasis take center stage for northsiders in search of a little stick 'n' sip action. A black-and-white-checkered drop ceiling, wood paneling, and the sounds of jukebox hits surround twentysomething suburbanites decked out in plaid shorts and Hollister hoodies, talking trash at the tables, giggling with friends at the bar, or watching TV on the couch. Dart and billiard buffs can sign up for tournaments or leagues, would-be vocalists can burst into song during karaoke on Mondays, and those seeking entertainment of the more boozy variety can down daily drink specials, including a happy hour featuring 25-ounce mugs and double well drinks for $3. And while there's no grub save for a vending machine, deliveries of pizza are common. Just be sure to wash the grease off your mitts, buddy, so you don't screw up the felt.
Tips from foursquare
Take it for what it is, a dive bar. Regulars get good service and others generally have to prove themselves. Deal with it.
Used to be a good place to go... Recently raised prices and adopted shitty service. Not a good look.
