Enoch's Sports Lounge is nowhere near as ancient as its Biblical namesake, but the amicably scruffy dive on the edges of Peoria has seen plenty of mileage since opening around two decades ago. Most noticeably, its formerly fire engine-red carpet is now a threadbare salmon from years of the Enoch’s faithful’s feet padding around the sprawling premises. Pony-tailed pool wizards traipse around any of the four billiards tables or amble over to a set of stained wooden lockers to stow their gear, while drinkers hop down from cafeteria-style metal stools welded to funky-looking island tables to hit up Carolyn and the other amicable cocktail-slinging divas for another round. Said crew can also supply salty snacks, and tickets for either the daily raffle for half-priced drinks or the Arizona Lottery variety. If patrons somehow get lucky in a more illicit fashion, however, they can head for the men’s room, which is replete with a “health care convenience center,” better known as a condom machine.
