It’s been almost 2 years since my last post?! Shocking how time flies!
I’m traveling to Berlin, Germany next week on a business trip. I know that my days will be spent in corporate meetings, but at night I will be looking to relax and hit some balls with the locals. In preparation for my trip, I Googled pool halls in Berlin and to my surprise found over 20 legit pool rooms. The most shocking discovery was that these were real pool rooms, not just bars that have pool tables! Obviously, pool is alive and well in Germany!
Since my time in Berlin will be very limited, I’ve developed a ‘pool room tour’ agenda for rooms that are located near central Berlin where I’m staying. I hope to find a tournament or two, and look forward to meeting some of the locals. Here’s my tour list, in no particular order:
- Bata Bar & Billiards, Tiergarten, Berlin
- Billardsalon Poolparadies, Lichtenberg, Berlin
- Billard House Friedrichshain, Friedrichshain, Berlin
- Billardsalon Köh, Mitte, Berlin
- Pool & Cigars, Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin
Should be a great trip and pool room tour. I’ll take pictures as I go. Later!
