Best Place to Play Pool Orange County 2007 - Diamonds Billiards
Readers' Choice: Shark Club
With plushy booths, beige-ish desert color scheme and leopard-spotted carpet, not to mention 13 pool tables that don?t show a day of wear or tear, this 14-year-old hidden treasure near the Brea Mall has a clean classiness reminiscent of Las Vegas. In fact, the Egyptian hieroglyphs and stone statues outside the shopping center that houses the club wouldn?t look out of place at the iconic Luxor Resort and Casino pyramid. And the friendly staff? By the looks of the sultry vixen taking your drink order, it probably wasn?t her enhanced r?sum? that helped her land this gig. The best part: They have to talk to you because it?s their job. The place is wide-open during the day, but Thursday through Saturday nights, it?s the hottest pool hall/club around. Wednesday?s happy hour runs from noon until 2 a.m., with $2 domestic beers and $3 imports. On other weekdays, happy hour is 4 to 7 p.m. Unfortunately, non-happy hour prices are a forbidding $4 for domestics and $5 for imports, and no deals are granted on hard liquor.
