Charlotte Room Toronto

The Charlotte Room shuts down after 17 years

The Charlotte Room, one of Toronto's nicest destinations for a game of billiards or pool, has abruptly shuttered. Initial reports were that the pool hall would close towards the end of next month after the landlord jacked the rent, but up until last night owner Rob Torres was hopeful a new deal could be reached.

Alas negotiations fell through and The Charlotte Room, which has occupied its space near King and Spadina for the past 17 years, was forced to pack it in by today, May 1. Torres hasn't had much time to formulate his next move, but scouting for a new location has already started. Hey, I hear Andy Pool Hall is for rent.
