Beginning in June 2012, when four pool playing friends sat down together to discuss opening an upscale billiards hall, little did the guys know a few short years later they'd have not only the original location in Lakeland but a second billiards hall in Tampa with demand for more! The original idea was to operate a pool hall a husband could bring his wife to, a billiards player would love and a place where a connoisseur of fine wines, liquor, and craft beer could enjoy a glass. Well, their idea worked!
Brewlands Bar & Billiards Carrollwood, a non-smoking, upscale Billiards Hall and sports bar in Tampa boasts 22 Brunswick tables at 8' and 9' ft., 8 Phoenix dart boards, 30 HDTV's, full liquor and 36 beers on draft served from an 85' Granite bar.
The People behind the Brewlands Brand
- .Larry Walthall and Michael Dauskart have been in the billiards business a combined 37 years as both a bartender and general manager. Both began shooting pool at a young age and are considered top players in Florida.
- Stuart McMartin currently owns 200+ properties in Scotland, Spain, France, Canada and the USA. Although relatively new to the billiards business, Stuart's drive and desire to learn has helped create the perfect atmosphere for players of all skill levels.
- Chad Clement owns small loan companies. Chad started shooting pool at a young age but stopped to concentrate on his family. Taking up the sport again in 2011 he turned to Larry and Michael for lessons. Something clicked, because Chad placed 17th in the APA National Singles Championships in 2013 and 17th in Scotch Doubles APA National 8-ball Doubles Championships 2014. Chad retired 3 months ago.
Besides being a non-smoking billiards hall in Tampa, Brewlands Bar & Billiards strictly enforces a dress code.

This upscale billiards hall in Tampa offers a small but tasty menu of typical pub favorites and will include chicken wings during Football Season.
The Pulled Pork Panini at $7.95 is great, slow smoked Boston pork butt, hand-pulled with a thick molasses BBQ sauce, aged sharp cheddar cheese, and chopped slaw. We also tried the Loaded Pool Hall Nachos for $5.95, crispy corn tortillas with melted aged sharp cheddar, chopped lettuce, diced red onion, spicy jalapeno, salsa. We added sour cream for $0.50, and Texas chili for $2.00. Our other choices were Fire Braised Chicken or Hand Pulled Smoked Pork for $2.00.
