Coffee tables that double as a foosball table are becoming more common, as manufacturers try to convince you that they would fit well in a man cave, but is it a Foosball table, or a Coffee Table?

After trying a couple of these tables out, we found they are great fun, but they seem to be a coffee table foremost, with a built in Foosball table. If you want to play a fun game, and add more entertainment to the space you have available, they are great, but they will be of no use to practice on  for the world championships

What Is A Coffee/Foosball table?

Having a Foosball/Coffee table in your living room, man cave, kids room, or anywhere that you may need a beautiful table, can add a lot to a that space. Manufacturers have gone to great lengths to make these stylish pieces of furniture look as elegant as there non-foosball cousins, after all, no one wants an ugly table sat in the middle of their living room.

If you have a Foosball style coffee table in your living room instead of a standard table would not give you any disadvantages, after all, you can put your magazines, drinks and other objects on it the same as any table. What it does give you is a conversation starter, that can be great fun for everyone who visits your home.

Hubby didn’t want me to get it. Thankfully I vetoed him! We had a multipurpose room and needed a coffee table, so this was perfect. Daughter had a sleepover (15-year-old girls), and they all enjoyed it. 9-year-old son and his friend have really liked it too. Over Christmas, even my nephews ranging from 7yrs-20 all had a blast. Heavy table, doesn’t look cheap at all. Hubby assembled it in less than an hour. Beware – the box is really heavy.

What To Look For in A Coffee Foosball Table

I have written about this several times before, however, when looking for this type of table then then criteria change somewhat.

With a regular table, the critical factors are Type of Table, player skill, style etc. but these generally do not apply as much to this type of table. These tables are not suitable for a professional to practice on (Beginners and children will be able to get their skills up to a better level).

When looking for your Coffee/Foosball table, the crucial factors will be the more ascetic factors like size, height and color/style. You will want something that looks like it is meant to be in the place you put it, so that you have a beautiful room and home.

Note, unlike most dedicated foosball tables, the duel table type is unlikely to have table levellers on its legs. So you will need to put it on a flat surface or manually level the table. These tables designs seem to be for making them look good, and levellers on each foot, while useful, does not look so great

Foosball/coffee table reviews

Below we give our review of two of the best tables that have built-in Foosball pitches which are available on the market today

Chicago Gaming Signature Foosball Coffee Table

Key Details

Color: Mahogany
Width: 47.5 inches
Depth: 28 inches
Height: 20 inches
Weight: 85 pounds

This is a beautiful table constructed from solid hardwood with hand-carved detailing and elegant accents. The Foosball table has inlaid wood veneers and players that have been hand painted. This table does include adjustable leg levellers, has a durable glass table top and a bottom shelf for extra storage and giving the extra strength.

This Coffee Table with solid hardwoods would not look out of place in any room, be it a lounge, man cave, playroom or whatever. It is a genuinely excellent table that could be a centrepiece anywhere. The Players are blue and red, there are three handles on each side. The ball return is stainless steel for long life, and there are serving slots on each side of the table.

Steve Silver Cocktail Table with Foosball

Key Details

Color: Dark Walnut
Width: 45 inches
Depth: 28 inches
Height: 20 inches
Weight: 85 pounds

This table features a tempered glass top, chrome coated iron with wood solids and veneers. Dark walnut in color, this would make a great addition to any man cave, kids room or living room.

This is called a cocktail table, but like most of these, they can double as any type of table. It has three handles on each side, comes with 2 foosballs and has ball returns on each end, one behind each goal. There is a ball serving hole on the side to start the game going. The table has two locking casters, as well as three casters that do not lock. This makes it easy to move, but once in position it can be reasonably well fixed in place.

This table has a shelf under the playing field, this gives the table much higher strength and allows for extra storage
