Gibby's Pool Hall Grand Island - Pool Hall Info

Gibby's was a popular sports bar and pool hall in Grand Island, NE.

In 2010, a number of Nebraska establishments, including Gibby's, was involved in investigations surrounding illegal gambling machines. In Gibby's case, it was a single machine in room separate from the pool hall. The business was also fined for allowing smoking to take place. According to the pool hall's owner, Thomas Gibson, the smoking fine resulted from a single cigarette butt found in an ashtray. Gibson said there had been no prior complaints about smoking at his establishment.

However, Gibby's was hit hardest by "No Smoking" legislation, which, according to Gibson, caused revenues from the business to decline by over 50%. This, coupled with the owner's plans to retire from the business, contributed to it's closing.

    Gibbys' was my business. I wrote you on 2018-11-08, but no response was received.

    The legal issues describing my business are incomplete and should be modified.

    You could delete my page. If you don't want to delete, may I add the highlights of being in the business?

    Hi Tom,

    I didn’t receive the email you said you sent in November.

    I am happy to update the listing with the complete/correct story of Gibbys. Feel free to reply to the email I just sent you with any details you want included.

    Thanks,
    Billiards Forum

    Gibby's pool hall had one violation for an illegal gambling machine. Hall County returned the machine to Gibby's pool hall.

    When the state was taking the machine, they found an ashtray containing one cigarette butt. The owners had never received complaints about smoking.

    I wish the state trooper had offered me the deal that another bar received. They were told that they had the afternoon to get their gambling machine out of the building. That trooper applied the law differently when their relation, or soon-to-be relation was involved.

    Our business was closed because of declining revenue. "No Smoking" reduced our income by over 50%. The owners were ready to retire.

    In Life,
    Tom Gibson

    Thanks Tom,

    I've corrected the notes on Gibby's Sports Bar and emailed you separately to share the source of the original info.

    I've seen first hand how the "No Smoking" legislation, along with a country-wide recession, has caused the closure of thousands of pool halls throughout the united states (literally, going through our listings in 2015, well over 1000 pool halls had closed).

    Sorry for the inconvenience, and hope retirement is treating you well!
