Sam’s Billiards in the Hollywood District of Portland Oregon first opened in October of 1962. The owners were Sam & Shirley Chapman who opened the room with 17 pool tables, now being hosted by their daughter Valerie Guyacy who welcomes you in. Over the years, Sam’s has hosted many of the legends of pool, Jimmy Caras, Willie Mosconi, Nick Varner, Jeanette Lee, Sarge Aylesworth and many more. The members of “Pink Floyd” stopped in while performing in Portland on a couple of different occasions, played pool, and enjoyed the warm friendly atmosphere that has made Sam’s a welcome retreat for all who pass through their doors. Since opening Sam’s has evolved by adding beer and wine in the mid 70’s and hard liquor wasn’t available until about five years ago.
