Hawley's Billiards walks a fine line between typical pool hall and cozy neighborhood bar, so expect to see a good mix of serious players and novices cracking balls on the tables or sipping drinks at the bar. Before Hawley's opened there in 1993, its spot in a '70s-era shopping center was home to a handful of pool parlors. Today, Hawley's offers popular arcade games, foosball and darts in addition to the eight 8-foot and four 9-foot billiards tables. Now that Dallas has gone smoke-free, the smokers crowd around the heater on the patio area out front. Hawley's offers daily specials such as free pool on Mondays and Wednesdays, and Thursdays the bar offers "Jack, Jim or Jose" for $2.
