By way of comparison - the two nearest pool halls have licenced capacities of 400 patrons (Bundoora) & 190 patrons (Dandenong), or perhaps you know the three late night venues in Ringwood which have licenced capacities for 620, 450 & 100 patrons.

  • How rough is Rack-em-up?

    Not at all. Some people assume that because Rack-em-up is a pool hall that it must be full of undesirable people & activities. The reality is quite different. Rack-em-up does not experience anywhere near the same level of issues found in many other venues. This is partly because we do not over serve & mostly because the majority of our customers are well behaved. The atmosphere at Rack-em-up is a happy relaxed vibe. You can relax and feel safe when you are at Rack-em-up.
