I see PK’s Billiards and Sports Bar (105 Infinity Road) all the time when I am at Orellana or the BP across the street getting Diet Coke. (Unrelated note, BPs that are marked “Family Fare” consistently have a great price for Diet Coke — $2.99/12 pack.)
I am not sure if you can really call PK’s a sports bar, as it only has 1 TV, but they definitely have 8 pool tables and 4 dart boards. This place is pretty cool, if you like dive type establishments (which, if you haven’t been able to tell, we do). Smoking is definitely allowed, and they have all your standard bottled American beers. Also, they play good music, nice and loud.
According to this article in the N&O, the family that runs the place recently experienced a pretty tragic loss that seems like it will impact their business. So, why not stop in and have a beer if you are in the area and help support it? While that article may give the impression that some sketchiness occurs there (and it might, I haven’t been there late at night), I was totally comfortable when I was there.
