5-6 feet will allow most shooters ample room to make any shot.
Much less and people will have trouble bumping the cue stick into the wall on the backstroke.
If you are even asking this question I suspect its is because your space is limited. So what you really mean is what is the minimum distance from the wall that you can build your table that you can get away with.
Therefore I offer this answer:
Measure the length of your longest cue (probably 57"-59") then add 3" to 6" as minimum space required to draw the cue back to shoot a close to rail shot. Now whatever is that figure use it to measure from the playing face of the rail to surface of the wall. This is the minimum distance you can put your table close to a wall.
If the room space is still insufficient for using a regular cue as above then purchase a 48" short cue to have on hand for the close to rail shots and use the same procedure as above using the space you do have.
5 to 6 feet would be comfortable
Here is a link to a room chart. The typical cue is 58" long so use those dimensions.
THE LENGTH OF THE CUE YOU NORMALLY USE PLUS 2 FEET ON ALL SIDES IF POSSIBLE.
6-10 feet so there is plenty of room to move around
Say what I think
