Best Time Having a Ball (or Eight)

Rhode Island Billiard Bar & Bistro

You don’t have to know the difference between billiards and pool to quaff a craft brew at the bar here or throw a Minnesota Fats Burger down your neck. But if you know that Willie Hoppe was 11-time world champion in three-cushion billiards, you’ll be greeted like a hero or heroine, your choice. (Know that Alfredo de Oro was eight-time world champ in three-cushion billiards plus 30-time straight pool champ, and somebody will ask you to marry him.) The RHODE ISLAND BILLIARD BAR & BISTRO is for the serious player, with 15 nine-foot tables, plus a 10-foot snooker table and a seven-footer for those accustomed to the coin-operated pool tables in bars. But they’re not pool snobs here, so no one will sneer if you want to play darts or even foosball, Bubble Hockey, pinball, or Pac-Man. | 2026 Smith Street, North Providence | 401.232.1331 | ribbb.com
