SLUSH DAY SPECIALS TOO >>>

Whether you like to shoot a game of pool in a boisterous tavern or want to bring the kids along, there are tons of places with pool tables in the area. Many restaurants and bars have a pool table. Farrelli's Pizza joints always have a table or two, as does The Spar in Old Town Tacoma, Harmon Tap Room, Top of Tacoma, Meconi's, Brotherhood Lounge and many more.

The places we've chosen to feature have more than one table, as well as an undeniable perk or two to go with your game of pool.

Also listed below are specials for today.

The Swiss

1904 S. Jefferson Ave., Tacoma, 253.572.2821
The Swiss is quintessentially Tacoma is so many ways-local artwork on the walls, industrial-chic local, and awesome food. There are four pool tables at The Swiss along with shuffleboard, foosball and other games. Better yet, stop in Monday through Thursday and enjoy free pool. Friday and Saturday nights often include live music.
Slush Day Specials: Pasta primavera, egg salad sandwich and clam chowder

Malarkey's Pool and Brew

445 Tacoma Ave. S, Tacoma, 253.383.3301
With about 16 pool tables, Malarkey's is hard to beat if you're looking for a serious pool hall. Wednesday evenings feature 9-ball tournaments, and all evenings offer cheap food, beer and games.
Slush Day Specials: Clam chowder, plus $5 "summer-ish" drinks and hot cocoa

Tower Lanes

6323 Sixth Ave., Tacoma, 253.564.8853
Tower Lanes is a good place to go if you want your pool with a side of mini golf, arcade games, pull tabs and bowling. There are three pool tables available at $6 per hour. If you go on a Friday or Saturday evening, you might have to wait to play, but there is enough to do at Tower Lanes that it's not likely to be a problem. Tower is also one of the rare places where adults can play pool and tip back a beer, but still bring the kids along.
Slush Day Specials: None. Still $2.50 a game to bowl

Eastside Club Tavern

410 E Fourth Ave., Olympia, 360.357.9985
If you live closer to Olympia, check out the Eastside Club Tavern for all your pool hall needs. Located downtown (close to several other bars and taverns if you want to make a bar crawl out of the night), the Eastside has a great selection of microbrews at very reasonable prices and an array of other table games.
Slush Day Special: $3.25 pints from 4-7 p.m.

4th Ave Ale House & Eatery


201 E. Fourth Ave., Olympia, 360.786.1444
The 4th Ave has a fantastic jukebox, a huge room of pool tables, a predictable selection of domestic-micros on tap, sandwiches, pull tabs, and of course - the infamous "back room."
Slush Day Specials: Ring ... ring ... ring ...
