Shuffleboard may be back in vogue as new club is all set in open in trendy Brick Lane. What’s more, craft ales and cocktails will be served to players; Charlotte Travel’s Kota Kinabalu package is a bargain worth checking out.
Shuffling the deck You’ve probably never played shuffleboard, unless you’ve been on a cruise, and even then the likelihood isn’t high. Along with deck quoits and deck tennis, the game has been sidelined by more creative, and arguably more gratifying, onboard entertainment. The single shuffleboard court on a European cruise I took earlier this year was rarely, if ever, used, and the other two games were not offered at all. On my first cruise, 20 years ago in the South Atlantic, you had to sign up a day in advance for all three, or be faced with a dull lecture on penguins or Napoleon. Now, it seems, shuffleboard is back in vogue – at least in Britain, where the London Shuffle Club will soon open in the Old Truman Brewery, on trendy and tourist-friendly Brick Lane. Craft ales and cocktails will be served to players in smart, retro-styled surroundings amid potted palms, from October 12. Courts can be booked in advance at www.londonshuffle.com.
We open in October 2016 and release the first batch of tickets early September. Courts cost £40 an hour, with no limit on the number of players – though we suggest 4 people for the best experience. You can book for more than 1 hour and we also take group bookings –
If there are more than 8 of you or want consecutive hours, we’d highly recommend emailing to make sure you’ll have the best time with us.
If you want to take the whole venue then its doable, our limit is 250 people.
Setting up shop in a brand-new floor of Shoreditch’s iconic Truman Brewery, we’ve got 8 Shuffleboard courts, 2 bars and a food court serving the finest Americana and we’re open 7 days a week from 12th October.
We’ve got a custom made cocktail menu and more craft beers than you have fingers. Some how we even have prosecco served from a vintage motorbike and sidecar.
Come early to learn the rules and pass the time on our exclusive 22ft table Shuffleboard, enjoy a drink or two, hear some disco tunes and then hit your court and push some discs. Oh, nearly forgot…..doubt you’ve played Corn Hole have you?
