My boyfriend and I went for the first time last night to play pool. When we got there, one table appeared open. We picked up the pool sticks and a guy rushes over to tell us that it’s his table and we needed to go to the bar to reserve a table. We were number 10 on the waiting list. Luckily, we could play ping pong and shuffle board as we waited. 40 minutes later, we noticed that the same pool table was still vacant. Then, the guy came over and started playing alone until his guests finally showed up an hour later. We went back to the bar to find out that we had moved up to 8 on the waiting list. We asked how long people could play and we were told people could play “ as long as they wanted”. An hour later, we were #6 on the list. We had spent nearly 4 hours at Melrose Billiards and never got a chance to play pool. Unless management rethinks this policy and implements a stricter policy with time limits to be fair to everyone, we probably won’t be back.
Use to be better back in the day. It's cool but lost the vibe it use to have. That happens sometimes when places renovate. Oh well still fun!
Been coming to this place for almost two decades. Awesome staff, great pool tables, ping pong, foosball. One of the last remaining classic spots in Nashville
For me it was exactly what I love about a billiards and more. It is place for adults as they do allow smoking and have an open bar. You can also play other games aside from billiards. But you will have to check it out for yourself.
Always seems like it's 2am here, but the beer is pretty cold and I like that.
Great spot for billiards, ping pong, darts, and Foosball. Indoor smoking, amazing burgers, friendly staff, jukebox.
Nice place! Plenty to do, pool, darts, ping pong, a nice bar, shuffleboard, places to sit inside and out, music, friendly staff, and I hear their food is really good during the day. 5 stars
