Varsity Billiards, 1128 Devine Street & 1132 Devine Street: August 2010   3 comments

Then:

Now:

I was hitting Moe's at University Corner on Main the other night (in the old Big Bird slot) and parked down on Devine Street, between Main & Assembly.

I couldn't help but notice that Varsity Billiards is closed. The lighted sign has always been a retro treat, and it's a shame to see it dark. (The first two,lighted, pictures are from February 2010).

The phone does not seem to have been disconnected, and the building permit is for "repairs", so perhaps they will be back. I'm not a pool player, but it would be a shame to see Varsity behind the eight-ball.

  1. Former USC basketball greats John Roche and Bobby Cremins played pool there often.

  2. I loved this place when I was in college (93-97). The owner and the place was so retro I swear I was on a Happy Days set. It was also a place known to be very slack about checking IDs , another reason I was fond of it!

  3. I remember going there a few times when I was in high school and I had to use the phone. It was a Rotary phone and I could not figure out how to use it, lol
