Bull Shooters in north Phoenix has a bevy of billiards tables – 48 of ‘em, to be exact – on which you can put your skills to the test. The felt-topped tables (each in tip-top condition with no rips, wrinkles, or wobbles) inside this spacious pool hall and sports bar take center stage for northsiders in search of stick ’n’ sip action. Owners Mike and Julie Bates have kept things largely the same since opening in 2008, including offering ping-pong, shuffleboard, poker, dart games (both electronic and otherwise), karaoke, and various distractions in an adjacent game room. They also offer 44 beers and daily specials (such as $2 PBR bottles). Just keep your drink far away from the pristine felt (or use a coaster, dammit!), since you’ll get hard looks or harsh words from the staff. And that ain’t no bull.
