Pool Halls

One of Brea’s most unique nightlife spots is Diamond’s Billiard Club. Established in 1994, Diamonds takes its name from the inlays and markings that are used as a reference point on the sides of pool tables. Diamond’s wanted to offer the city of Brea more than just a traditional pool hall so instead they set out to redefine what a pool hall is.

Diamond’s has a strictly enforced dress code on the weekends and besides great pool, the club offers great food and cocktails all served in a friendly welcoming atmosphere. Besides billiards, Diamond’s offers dancing, live bands and DJ’s on the weekends.
