Best Pool Hall - 2011
Wynkoop Brewing Company
With its creaking old floors, smoothed wooden fixtures and green lamps, the pool room on the second floor the Wynkoop Brewing Company forces you to stand at attention and show respect for another time and place in Denver history. And the beer's not bad, either. The pool hall includes twenty-plus billiards tables, shuffleboard and darts, and it features a bar back that was once part of the Tivoli Brewery. But it's the tables that matter — tables where you can usually find Denver's resident pro, Melissa "The Viper" Little, who practices there, gives lessons and generally holds court on her status as one of the best players in the nation. Even better, you can play free during the day Mondays through Thursdays — which is good for the pockets and even better for your pocketbook.
