American Pool vs English Pool

Why American, and not English, Pool? I hear you ask. The short answer is that it’s basically the same game, however, our American cousins, like most things in life, do things bigger and, you know what they say, bigger is always better.

American Traditions

Our large tables, with blue cloths (as is customary on American Pool tables) and balls that have spot or stripe markings, rather than being either red or yellow, fill our American Pool Hall and Bar and help to set us apart from the rest.

American Pool Set Up

You set up the rack for American pool much like you would if you were playing the English variant and continue to play in much the same manner. What is really likely to help you get your eye in though, is ensuring that you have an ample supply of cocktails or similar drinks from the bar.

American Pool Variations

There are, of course, variations on the classic way to play “American Pool”. For example, you could play American 9 Ball Pool, Killer Pool, One- Pocket Pool or Cut-Throat pool, English Pool or even Snooker.

Perfect for Any Event

Our American Pool games are perfect for a group event, corporate booking, or even a date night. Why? Mainly because it’s fun but, also, because it’s a great team-building activity, which incorporates elements of both playfulness and competitiveness. Don’t forget the American Pool Bar which serves cocktails, beers, spirits along soft drinks too.

American Pool and More

American Pool is perfect as a standalone activity or when it’s played along with one of our other activities such as Indoor Mini Golf or Duckpin Bowling. If you are looking for a package deal for a large group then please contact us to discuss what you had in mind, we’re happy to answer any questions as well. We do ask that minors are supervised in our American Pool Hall.
