1997 BEST Pool Hall


Among up-scale pool halls, the original Jillian’s gets bonus points for being there first. But what sets it apart from the competition is all the stuff beneath the third-floor pool tables: hundreds of high-tech video games on the second floor and a decent restaurant/mental amusement park called the Atlas Grill at street level. Which means there’s lots of things to do on a Friday night while you wait hours for a pool table.
