Slick Willie's Family Pool Hall

1200 Westheimer
Houston, TX 77019
713-522-2525
Best Of
Few pool halls match up to Slick Willie's. Houston has about a dozen locations, but our favorite is no doubt the one in the heart of Montrose, where there are more than 20 big, solid and clean tables. If you're just an every-now-and-again player used to shooting on that wobbly little thing at your favorite dive bar, the game at Slick Willie's will take some adjustment. If you've got money on the line and want to quiet your nerves you can avail yourself of the full bar. And if billiards makes you hungry, there's a menu of reliable bar favorites like pizza and chicken tenders.
