Santa Monica / Westside, Los Angeles –
Any doubt that Q’s Billiard Club is all about beer and sports is immediately dispelled upon seeing the ample bar placed right in the middle of the room, the towering pyramid of flat-screen TVs suspended above it, and the jersey-clad fans that surround them both.
Open early, Q’s is a popular daytime haunt for die-hard sports enthusiasts who can’t miss a game, but it really gets rocking at night.
Given that the place is a billiards club, it does feature pool tables – one of the biggest collections on the west side of LA, in fact – but on busy nights, even those get turned into beer pong tables, to the cheers of the boozy students, recent graduates, and young professionals that gather to let off steam.
If the main room gets too rowdy with football fans and singles on the prowl, patrons can make their way to the upstairs area, which features more pool tables, a second bar, cozy nooks with red leather sofas and wingbacks, and a patio that’s a real favorite for getting to know that new friend from the bar.
While the place can get intense during big games, the mood definitely lightens up for the after-party when the crowd turns its attention to flirting, drinking, and letting the good times roll.
Rowdy sports fans, students, preppy post-grads, and singles on the make, 21 to 30.
Bartenders provide iPod tunes, mostly Top 40, R&B, and hip-hop. Wednesday is Trivia Night. Beer pong, pool tables, flat-screen TVs.
