5400 Martway, Mission | 913-384-0986
To properly prepare for a Clarette Club adventure, you'll need a roll of quarters. The large bar, hidden away on Martway Street in Mission, is stuffed with coin-operated pool tables. Make friends with a $7 pitcher of PBR, acclimate yourself to the bar's signature aroma, and enjoy the hours spent sliding quarters into the tables and shooting stick. After a few games and conversations with the Clarette clientele, you might just forget that you're in a suburban strip mall. Whether you're a hustler or a newbie, no one will utter a disparaging word. The Clarette is free of the Los Angeles level of smog that it was once known for — smokers are now relegated to a patio, but that's OK. The clean air just means we can spend more time in this boozy pool hall.
