Out of all inventions China has imported from the West few are as popular as pool or snooker. You can find pool and snooker places in almost every little town in China, and naturally Guangzhou as a megalopolis has a lot of these places to offer. From single tables in bars, clubs and restaurants to hundreds of square meters of lined up tables in designated pool clubs – if you are looking for a convenient and not-too-expensive past time activity there is hardly a way around this sport. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best places in Guangzhou to go to for a round of pool or snooker – each of them offering at least five pool/snooker tables and a selection of food and drinks in a nice and cozy atmosphere.
