Buffalo Billiards

This bar is a real piece of "Wild West" history is located on Austin's historic Sixth Street district, across from the Driskill hotel. This turn-of-the-century building was built in 1861 by the Ziller Family and named the Missouri House. Touted as Austin's first boarding house and rumored to be a brothel, many a cowboy had a good time here.

Today, the Missouri House holds a new name: Buffalo Billiards. Billiard Digest magazine named it the nation's Best New Pool Hall in 1999; the year it opened. Buffalo Billiards continues to carry out the "Wild West" traditions with a modern twist, from dueling pool sharks, shoot outs at the dart boards, or some good old rowdy fun.
