top hat is my favorite place to finish the weekend. it's not a bar so it never gets too rowdy, and there are plenty of tables and for the most part all of the cues are straight. a good place to bring a group of friends because the odds are you can get two or three tables close to one another if you get there before 10 or 11 pm. inexpensive, nonpretentious, just laidback pool atmosphere. not dead, but never too packed even when all the tables are full. highly recommended for newbies as well as seasoned players because nobody will really watch over your game and make you feel uncomfortable. a good learning/practice atmosphere!
Pros: spacious, laidback, equipment in good condition, inexpensive, refreshments available!
Cons: small parking lot but not usually a problem. sometimes loud but not regularly.
