Bars With Pool Tables in Las Vegas : Where to Play
Despite being a popular pastime, pool tables in Las Vegas are surprisingly difficult to come by. Playing pool in Las Vegas can be an excellent diversion from gambling or a fun activity to do with a group of friends. Below is a list of pool table bars in Las Vegas, including those on the Strip, Fremont Street, and off the beaten path.
Although there are a few bars on the Strip with pool tables, most only have a few tables or less, and there are no full pool halls. If you want to play pool on the Strip, you should either avoid peak times or be prepared to wait because pool tables are scarce. There are a number of dedicated pool halls away from the Strip that is a short drive or inexpensive ride away, which are listed below.
Where to Play Pool on the Strip
Level Up at MGM Grand: Level Up, a sports bar, arcade, and casino all in one, has a number of pool tables as well as beer pong and a shuffleboard table.
Rockhouse at Venetian: Rockhouse, located in the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian, has a number of pool tables for guests to use.
Beer Park at Paris: Beer Park, which sits atop Paris’ roof and offers a couple of pool tables as well as other bar games like giant Jenga, Connect 4, foosball, and bubble hockey, is one of our favourite bars with a view of the Bellagio Fountains.
BetMGM Sportsbook Bar at Park MGM: BetMGM, a sportsbook that also serves as a sports bar, has pool tables as well as miniature bowling and shuffleboard tables. If you want to play pool while watching a game you bet on, BetMGM is hard to beat.
Slots a Fun at Circus Circus: Look, it’s not upscale, but Slots a Fun has a few pool tables in the back of their casino floor. You’ll also be able to get $1 hot dogs and $1 draft beers. Slots a Fun, while not fancy, can be a fun stop for value seekers.
Cosmopolitan’s Sportsbook: Cosmo’s sportsbook has one pool table available for play. Obviously, because there is only one table in a prime location, it does a lot of business. Just be aware that it exists.

Other Pool Halls in Las Vegas
Although the following Las Vegas pool halls are not within walking distance of resorts on the Strip and Downtown, they are excellent choices if you don’t mind taking a cheap cab or rideshare.
Emporium at Area15: Area15 is a psychedelic visual feast for the eyes and a short Uber/Lyft ride from the Strip for those who are unfamiliar. While admission to the campus is free (and well worth the trip in our opinion), there are a variety of “add-on” activities that can be booked in advance. An adult arcade for those over the age of 21. Pay-per-game pool tables are available at Area 15’s Emporium.
Las Vegas Cue Club: The Las Vegas Cue Club, located just behind the Sahara on the north end of the strip, has 25 pool tables, a full bar, and two steel tip dartboards.
