Drink and Play Shuffleboard, Florida-style!

No, you aren’t in Boca Raton but you can play shuffleboard like you are. Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club is actually a brand-new bar near the Gowanus Canal that will provide guests with tons of entertainment, geriatric-style.

Located on Union Street, Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club offers guests ten indoor, 50-foot long shuffleboard surface as well as nightly drink specials, a food menu (a revolving roster of food trucks will be setting up shop) and a place for 20 and 30-somethings a place to unwind while getting their shuffleboard on.

While there a lots of spots in NYC that offer alternate activities in the form of games like Ping-Pong, pool tables, dart boards and even skee-ball, none have yet been dedicated to the pastime of retirees. So owners Jonathan Schnapp and Ashley Albert decided to change that, by raising $40,000 in 30 days with a Kickstarter campaign. Soon after, their dream of opening Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club was a reality.

And while guests will be able to play the low-key sport as they please, there will also be a league which will hold competitions for eager shuffle boarders, and be available for private parties and events.

Watch out, Grandma!
