In the fullness of time, a pool table has finally appeared in the village of Del Mar, where I live. This has never happened before, at least in the last 40 years! I took this photo through the front window; they were closed at the time.
The location is the new Debonair Barber Shop, 1202 Camino Del Mar. Ask for Lauren for a great cut. The table is "challenging" due to the absence of slate and the cushions are somewhat solid and rather unpredictable, but when you consider what they play on in third-world countries, it's ok. In my world, any pool table is better than no pool table.
I hear there will be tournaments in another month or so, when they finish the construction work out front.
You can tell they are catering to a manly clientele because of the paintings of naked ladies, and there's some hard liquor available for paying customers. Extra barber chairs for you while you wait.
Update: May 24, 2023, they are out of business. What were they thinking? Wood instead of slate? No way any serious pool player would get a haircut there.
