Antarctica

Antarctica

Rarely busy and always friendly, Antarctica is perhaps the best spot for billiards in Manhattan. There always seems to be only a handful of people in this unassuming little neighborhood bar, which means that the pool tables are often open. Though the drinks are good and fairly cheap and the staff is mellow, there's nothing particularly amazing about this place other than the noticeable breathing room (which, we admit, is a rarity in this city). It might be relatively unknown status of this place that makes it so great; if that is the case, then we sincerely apologize to all the Antarctica-addicted pool players we've angered by airing your secret.
