Uptown Billiards Club

Happy Hour

I went to a fancy-dress party at this upscale billiards hall and felt very much like Mrs. Peacock was going to do me in with a wrench at any moment. Uptown Billiards Club is a romantically lit place with ample bookshelves, rows of pool tables, and rich wood everywhere—the living embodiment of a game of Clue. The bar has a secret speakeasy feel with little outside signage in the heart of Nob Hill and a steep hike up to the second story, but once there, the staff is full of friendly endearments, the food is good, and it's fun to pretend you're a curious guest at an eccentric billionaire's mansion.
