You are formally welcome to the BQE Billiards 30-Year Anniversary Party! BQE Billiards began 30 years ago in 1991 when brothers Nick and John Katelas, both of whom immigrated from a small village in Greece, remodeled an old airplane manufacturing plant into an elegant pool room in the heart of Queens, New York.

Our mission has always been to offer wholesome entertainment and a pleasant dining experience to friends and families of all ages and our longevity has been a testament to the fulfillment of that goal. Through the good and bad times we have stood by our community and they have stood by us including 2021 which was a difficult year for all of us, especially BQE Billiards, which in addition to the temporary closure of our business we sadly lost John Katelas.

As an act of gratitude to the loyalty and patronage of our customers and in remembrance of John, we are celebrating the 30 year anniversary of BQE Billiards on Monday, November 22 from 7pm to 11pm. Please come and join us!

RIP to a legend 🙏

The world wanted to see DMX win because he spoke for them through every beat and lyric. His positive vibes and energy were contagious and his wisdom inspired generations. Grateful we had the pleasure of hosting him. Gone too soon.
