Bomb Shelter Billiards

Mar 20, 2017

Basements are uncommon in Southern California, but there are some scattered around Los Angeles and Orange County. We moved this Brunswick Windsor into a basement in Rolling Hills Estates, California. During the move, we learned that this subterranean game room was originally built as underground bomb shelter.

Getting the 8′ pool table in was a bit of a challenge as the main entry to the room is a metal spiral staircase. The small drop down ladder at the other entrance did not prove useful to get the slabs of slate or large piece of frame downstairs. However, once all the parts were down, the room proved to be an awesome, secret hideaway/man cave.
