An Astoria billiards club was shut down last week following a police raid in June that allegedly found that gambling was taking place on the premises.

The Queens Supreme Court closed Astoria Billiards Club, located at 35-21 30th Ave , on August 6 by way of court order. There is no word as to whether it will reopen.

The current owners have owned the establishment since 2004, which offers billiards, pool, snooker, ping pong, air hockey, chess and backgammon.

The club, which typically operates from 11 am to 3 am seven days a week, offers beer/wine and a bite to eat.

The owners did not want to comment for the story. A spokeswoman for the Queens District Attorney’s Office did not have any further information on the case.

The club, which primarily occupies basement space, does have some loyal followers.

The billiards club received four out of five stars on Yelp. Reviewers claimed that the tables were in good condition, the prices were good and it was never too crowded. Prior to being a pool hall a bowling alley occupied this location
