Best Place to Play Pool

The Parlor

The Parlor in Bellevue pulls off upscale without pretentiousness, boasting 23 top-notch pool tables, six of them in private party rooms. All come with service pagers, and it's as acceptable to order a round of bottom-shelf tequila shots as a signature martini (same goes for the nacho platter vs. the apple-pecan salad). It's unusual for an establishment to feel both comfortable and swanky, which is exactly why everyone from frat boys to Microsoft employees are willing to leave their sweatpants at home and chalk their cues here.
