The Raq

The Raq offers a billiard area that's best described as a man cave with dark tables, hanging lamps, wooden floors, and, uh, sparkling crystal chandeliers. It works, though. Raised glass bars allow you to keep a drink nearby (without risking a table spill) and the $12/hr charge takes an average toll on the wallet.

Nice place to hang out for a night of pool playing and a few cold drinks. Liked the ambience. Placement of tables could be switched up a bit as it's tight on some sides, but the cool decor is worth checking out.

Staff was rude and unprofessional

I have no problem with certain dress codes but the ones at this establishment aren't exactly fair. I understand their want and need to keep gang type influences out but you're not even allowed to wear a hoody and you're 100% required to have a bag check. It just puts me off a bit is all...

The servers are decent, if ditzy, and the food takes an incredibly long time to be served, even when there's absolutely no one else in the joint. The attitude of the doorknobs -sorry I mean doormen and the coat check girls is horrendous however. If you aren't a pretty young thang, or a big guy who can back himself up physically, you will be treated like dirt and talked to like scum. Would not recommend to anyone with self respect. Also, there's mandatory coat check even if you've been at the place for over an hour before coat check hour started.
