My husband took me here the first time I came to LA 25 years ago, and now we take our kids. You can't be in there past 8pm if you're under 18, but younger kids can play during the day. The place is clean and plays decent music. We thought it was a bit pricey, and they wanted cash, which... More

I have been going into the House of Billiards in Santa Monica since 1979! It is still a family business. The changes are mostly to the menu of beers and sandwiches served. They now serve many craft beers and during the day you can get a great sandwich and at night you can get beer and play specials. I go... More

Mitchel, we're coming up on four decades! I know every manager before me would tell you that we've loved having you come play and hang out with us over the years. Thanks for giving folks a rundown of what we're all about -- if anyone's qualified to do that, it's you. Cheers to many more pours! Until next time, Natalia... More

Inside the House of Billiards are the ingredients for a good time. You'll find our high quality pool tables, a vast selection of craft beers and 13 TVs will have you covered no matter if you're just looking to unwind or to watch your favorite team play. In the house of Billiards, we take great pride in our location. That's why we have the best tables of any pool hall in Sherman Oaks. Of course, this means that if you lose, you can't blame it on our tables! Our beer selection is another point of pride. We currently carry 19 beers on tap (rotating 12 every month), and we're looking to add more. Our selection leans heavily towards craft beers, the variety will cater to any taste that you may have. Come in anytime between 3 and 7pm for happy hour, where we have $4 pints. Monday-Thursday & Sunday grab one of our pool and pitcher bundles during select times of day! We know you'll have a good time because we're always busy...having a good time! That's why most of our employees have been part of the team for years now, no one ever feels like leaving! Stop by today or call ahead to reserve a table!

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
