Pool tables are an integral element of many bars.  They provide the players with an opportunity for conversation and healthy competition.  Appealing to players of all ages and sexes, pool tables are an amusement staple.

H. Lazar & Son, Inc. has been operating pool tables in bars since the 30’s...in other words, spanning nine decades.

Soft-Tip Darts

H. Lazar & Son, Inc. operates exclusively Arachnid dart games.  Their newest and most popular dartboard is the Galaxy 3 Live.  Among its many state-of-the-art features are simultaneous worldwide online play; tracked player rankings and statistics; and an innovative reversible (15" and 13") dart head.

The Galaxy 3 Live is perfect for both casual and league play.  Its graphics, sounds, and player feat animations further engage the dart player.

We are a proud member of the PPD (Partners Promoting Darts), a consortium of leading soft-tip dart companies that promote soft-tip darts throughout the year, culminating in a yearly national tournament with prizes in excess of $800,000.  H.

We maintain a robust league system comprised of both H. Lazar & Son traveling leagues and in-house leagues; PPD remote leagues and tournaments; and periodic "luck of the draw" tournaments.

I have had the pleasure of knowing four generations of Lazars: Hyman, Bernie, Dale and Brent. It has been my pleasure to interact with them for over 75 years! I first met Bernie in 1940 at the old YMWHA in Oakland. I was new to Pittsburgh, fresh out of high school, and Bernie offered his friendship to me, a friendship that grew to be something very special for me. After WWII Bernie recommended me to B D Lazar Company, a distributor of coin-operated amusements, for a part time sales role, placing a machine called “You Play We Pay” on a route. I have very fond memories of placing, loading and collecting this machine. That part time role soon became a full time job. Bernie was a man of his word and if he told you he would do something he did it, respecting the needs of others in business and in his personal life. Everyone liked Bernie. The business later changed when Dale got active. He brought a modern approach and, as we all know, H Lazar and Son grew under his leadership to what it is today. But my best memory of Dale is as a fine person. When his father and mother had to move to a nursing home, Dale visited them daily and made sure their living area had a feel of home by hanging familiar pictures on the walls of his room. And to this day, Dale enlivens the lives of nursing home residents, staff and visitors through his jukebox donations and the Jukebox Memories Project.

I first began doing business with Bernie Lazar in 1965 at my first pizza shop. I had the pleasure of having him in seven of my businesses. He was a great man and I loved spending time with him. Bernie was a man of integrity with a comforting presence, who I had the utmost respect for.  He had a beautiful soul.

The service was always exceptional.  Whatever I requested he provided and often he upgraded games before I had an opportunity to even make a request.  H. Lazar & Son has provided me with outstanding service for over 50 years. The employees have been excellent, without exception.  I wish all my suppliers/vendors were as good as H. Lazar & Son.  Lastly, I am proud to say that Dale is walking in his father’s footsteps.

As a corporate event and party planner, I have worked with H. Lazar & Son for over 25 years.  I have used a wide variety of their equipment from sports games, pinball machines to vintage arcade games. From the receptionist Kathy to the staff and set-up crew, Rocky, Anthony and Will, everyone is a pleasure to work with. They are professional, experienced, helpful and efficient.   I know the equipment will always be in top condition and delivered on time. Dale, the owner, is personable, always available to make suggestions and is willing to work with me on any last minute changes.


We are more than pleased with the quality of the service, equipment and the ease of working with the company.  I look forward to our continued business relationship.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Dale Lazar for my entire career, over 27 years. The Lazar Family’s reputation for quality service and pleasant/efficient employees, represents the character of and upbringing from Hyman Lazar, dating clear back to 1932.

 

Family Businesses are very special and to have a 3rd generation company with such high quality is somewhat unique. H. Lazar & Son serves Western PA with as much pride as I’ve had the pleasure of encountering anywhere in the entire US.
