Pool, poetry, music, beer, & wine 4/7/2006

The Warehouse is an often overlooked establishment on Gaines Street (across from the now closed Late Night Library). The building is a rennovated warehouse, which is interesting. The front room is the pool hall with about ten tables that are in decent shape. In a small corner of the front room is the bar, where you can find a decent selection of beers on tap as well as bottled. The back room is an open room with candlelit tables and a stage. During the weeks there are open mic poetry and musician performances as well as poetry and literature readings from FSU's English Department. On the weekend you'll often find a local or regional band playing, sometimes for free or with a minimal cover charge. The establishment is smoke friendly, but because of the high ceilings, this almost never bothers me. There is also a nice porch on the back that is a nice place to chat and enjoy a beer. My only complaint is that the bar is so small and a popular hangout for the regulars, that its sometimes claustrophobic and difficult to navigate to get a drink. The pool tables are about the same price as other halls in town ($8/hr) and quickly fill up on Saturday night, so arrive early or prepare to wait upwards of an hour for a table. The jukebox is filled with classic rock, which is a welcome change from the usual hip-hop/country mixes at other pool halls. I rarely go for the pool anymore (it's kind of out of the way for me) but I like to go to the poetry/literature readings (which are mostly free - with the exception of when they have a guest reader), but this is a great find for anyone looking for a change of pace in Tally's nightlife. more
