The Green Room is a Durham institution. It's even got a pivotal scene in the famed Bull Durham. Today the Green Room is basically unchanged since the 1980s baseball classic was made, save an improved beer list and a few more floor tiles wearing away. They offer billiards, darts, fußball and around a hundred beers to try. The place is great for activities or conversation. It has the feel of a townie dive, but has a more diverse crowd than the aforementioned dives. The ownership is also really friendly and dedicated to keeping this local institution going. It would have gotten five stars, but there's some dust that I think has been here since Kevin Costner and Tim Robbins graced the building.

Chilliest bar, best/worse movies, solid beer. Real gems are hiding in the cooler.

I’ve been in a lot of pool halls all over the world, but there really is something to be said for being home amongst your boys. Michael and Geoff do it better than most — I know that no matter what, Geoff is gonna take me to school about beer and Michael is gonna take me to school on the greens. That is, if I’m lucky enough to play him. I learn something new every time I play here, and my game goes to a higher level every time. And their beer and tables are cheap as hell. Get yer ass in here before they realize how cheap they are.

Been here on several occasions and I like it more each time. Here's what you should know before going. Does this place draw a hip, young crowd? No does this place have craft beer? Yes. Is it on draft? No. Are there plenty of pool tables and room to play on them? Yes. Are there folks here friendly? Yes. Are there "tons of drink specials so I can get drunk on the cheap?" No. Overall, this is an establishment aimed at people who want to play pool, not be bothered by a bunch of immature, drunk doofuses and be able to do it in a relaxed laid-back atmosphere. It's great if that sounds like something you'd be interested in.

This place is unique, as far as I'm concerned and we love it. It's a pool room that anyone will feel comfortable at. Even if it's just to try one of the enormous beer selection they have. The Green Room is one of the great things about Durham!

I can't wait for the Green Room to open again, I've been playing pool for decades and this is by far my favorite place to play. They also have one of the best beer selections in town, particularly if you want to try something new. I highly recommend visiting the Green Room, it's a Durham staple!

Great vibe (specialty can/bottle bees, b-list movies, perfect background music and volume) and great tables. Definitely my favorite place to play pool around Durham-Chapel Hill.

Great rates, mixed crowd, hospitable staff. I'll be back for sure. Like others have said they don't serve food so...

The bartenders alone make this place amazing. They’re hilarious, kind, and will talk you through some great beer recommendations. The place itself isn’t overly crowded and is a great place to just play a game and catch up with friends.

Not my usual forte to write a review, but The GREEN ROOM, namely the owner Michael has inspired me to spread the word to all my fellow pool lovers. Haven just moved to this area from out of state, I needed to find a local place to play and immerse myself into the local pool scene. I felt at home with the comfort level I instantly found at the GREEN ROOM. The atmosphere and vibes are very inviting and tables are obviously taken care of and maintained consistently. All the employees are very friendly and down to earth. The OWNER Michael is the epitome of a pool hall business owner. He has a real passion for the game and is extremely inviting and personable. Without knowing how serious of a pool junkie I am, Michael made me feel like I never left my "home" pool hall where I grew up playing. I knew then that I have found my new "home" pool hall!!!! I highly recommend to anybody looking for a real "players" pool hall with great tables and/or to anybody looking for a fun, sports bar type atmosphere to look no further, both interests balanced perfectly!!! Durhams 1 and only legit pool spot!!

Nice hole-in-the-wall pool room/small bar vibe, which is exactly what you want from here. Laid back. The original featured in Bull Durham was across the street. Moved in the 1990s but has the same pool tables, lights, etc. I'll be back.

First visit ...pretty much a simple place. Interesting environment. Good but with character with the dated decor very nostalgic & I'm sure filled with history. Great if you have a bunch with you to share a few rounds of pool. Needs food though.
