Slicks Billiards in Norco CA is a Great Place to Kill Time

It's a little intimidating pulling up to Slicks for the first time. The shop itself is packed into the corner of the shopping center across from the In N Out burger.

It’s a little intimidating pulling up to Slicks for the first time. There’s always a hand full of people loitering out front smoking cigarettes and watching the parking lot. The shop itself is packed into the corner of the shopping center across from the In N Out burger. Once you get inside, you’ll notice that it looks big at first, but then smaller the longer you are there. For a place that has a pool hall, a bar, tables, and a dance floor, there isn’t ever really a whole lot going on in there. This is why it’s a good place to kill some time.

I go to Slicks often with my wingman Steven, but for anyone looking to find groups of hot girls, this place is not very target rich. We usually just buy some beer so we can take advantage of the free pool deal; Free pool when you’re drinking. The place can actually be kinda fun as long as you bring your own girls, but I would not bring a girl to this place as a ‘date’. The pool room has a peculiar scent that I’m not too fond of, and the place is filled with heavy Norco bros. It’s kinda fun to watch a bunch of low class guys sit at a bar and stare at the moderately good looking bartender when she turns around. I think my friend Steven is the only one who knows how to actually make conversation with her.

There’s a decent selection of beer on tap, and the glasses are pretty big and decent priced. There’s only like 7 seats at the bar or something, but I suppose this is typical at lots of places. The whole atmosphere of the place is dark and stale, and the dancefloor seems to always be empty. The most dancing you will see is when a few girls or girls and guys go out to dance to half a song as a charade and then come back to the tables.

Slicks also serves food but I don’t think I’ve ever had it. It seems more of a ploy to get past the zoning restrictions for bars. I’d say the ratio of guys to girls here is 4:1 on a typical night, so don’t get your hopes up. It’s not a good idea to get too drunk here because the cops like pulling over people that leave the parking lot regardless of whether or not they’re doing anything wrong. But like I said, it’s a good place to hang out or start your night out; Most people from Corona know that there aren’t very many good places to get drunk and hang out, so they instead travel from place to place to make their night seem more eventful. Why not start out at Slicks.
