. Jonathan Schnapp and Ashley Albert have advised us of the start-up of a new shuffleboard venue in Chicago, IL, similar to the successful Royal Palms venue in New York City. As North Eastern Director of the National Shuffleboard Association, I have had many requests over the years for a place to play in the Chicago Area.
Royal Palms Chicago is located at 1750 North Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, IL 60647. They already have 60 Teams with Names and Matching Shirts. Royal Palms is open daily, with food and drink, with crowds up to 400. Only for adults over 21, 2 Bars, a Restaurant, with 30 employees and music.
It is reportedly an active scene and growing. Note that this likely the most open shuffleboard venue in Illinois. Be prepared for new language at Royal Palms. Forget cues pushing discs; they push “biscuits” with “tangs”. Eating and drinking trumps convention?
Happy Shuffling.
