Best BYOB Pool Hall – By Totally Dublin!

“Dublin city centre has long been yearning for a chilled out spot where you can enjoy some casual beers without breaking the bank. Fortunately, The Hideout pool hall has stepped up to the plate. But don’t expect death metal, crooked cues or dodgy geezers trying to hustle you. The Hideout may be a pool hall by name, but with its bright decor and deep house vibe, it is not a traditional pool hall by nature. Alongside experiencing quality tables you can enjoy BYOB from €5 pp. Cues and cans it is then!” Totally Dublin

If you’d like to sample The Hideout’s new vibe tonight you can secure a table by booking online.

Yours in sport,


Trinity College Dublin at The Hideout Pool Hall

Masters in Business students from Trinity College Dublin headed down to The Hideout for cans and pool to celebrate the end of their exams. We’re currently offering free BYOB for students, and the group took full advantage, enjoying some melodic deep house and hours of competitive pool, and substantial quantities of beer! Take a look at the video below.

Long live the BYOB pool hall,

Thanks For Your Pool Hall Check Ins at The Hideout

Hi all,

3 weeks ago we decided to try and boost our social media presence by offering a free game of pool for a Facebook check in. Thanks to all of you who participated, we’ve just got our 100th check in! We want to be the best place in Dublin for you to relax and have a few beers – that’s why we’ve invested in our pool hall, and are willing to give you a discount for helping us spread the word.

Here’s a little screenshot of how the check-in deal has positively impacted our facebook page…


Thanks again in your support for our quest to become Dublin’s best pool hall, look forward to hearing from you,


Photos of The Hideout – After “Hair and Make Up!”

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Recently, we decided to give our epic old pool hall a bit of what our interior designer calls “hair and make up.” In reality, we got a bit carried away and ended up with a complete makeover. Gone is the glass box that had the tendency to hide away our staff replaced by a nice welcoming bar for you all! Gone are the overly dark walls. Gone are the old school green baizes .

We present to you The Hideout 2.0! Along with our American pool tables, we’ve got a fresh new colour scheme, sliver clothed tables, and a welcoming new bar. We want to be the first great pool hall you’ve ever been to. And more importantly a great place to chill, have a few beers with friends and have fun. We hope you’re as excited as we are! Would love to know your views…
