MN Pool Rooms

List of Current and Closed Pool Rooms in Minnesota

I’d like your help constructing a historical list of pool rooms in Minnesota.

I’ve set up a photo gallery and will add photos of these rooms. Please let me know if you’ve got old or current photos of these pool rooms. I’m hoping to get at least one exterior shot and one interior image of each place.

Sample the gallery here.

If you’ve thought of a pool room I’ve forgotten or have corrections or extra information on dates please email me or add a comment to this page.
