    Maybe the greatest bar in the world. Shuffleboard, board games, life size jenga, and awesome drinks. Plus you'll feel like you walked into a Wes Anderson movie.

    Skip the wait by making a reservation in advance for a private cabana and court! $$$, but comes with unlimited drinks and really great service. Drinks are strong = Blackout. #nycadventures #brooklyn

    This bar is my favorite in New York. It can be tough to get a shuffleboard but the staff is always super helpful. Plus, because of a fire marshal rule, it's never crowded even when at capacity.

    Super cute place to hang out, with great cocktails. Check out the wallpaper in the bathroom. If you want to play shuffleboard get there early unless you're willing to wait a couple hours.

    Come for the cocktails -- the bourbon ones especially -- and the throwback DJ and the ginormous space and the board games. Stay, likely for a long 2hr wait, for the shuffleboard.

    You may be in for a long wait, but the novelty of shuffleboard is worth it. Grab a beer, a board game (they have Settlers of Catan!), and enjoy the wait in style.

    So much fun. Definitely want to come back here with a group. Bar with tasty cocktails and they serve pizza. But apparently food trucks stop here as well which would be great.

    This is one of my favorite places in Brooklyn. It's a bit of a hike, but worth it.Everything about this place is great. Decor, cocktails, overall vibe and the floor shuffleboard is unique and so fun!

    Cocktails are named for legends of the game—the Earl Ball is made with Old Forester bourbon, fresh pineapple and lemon juice, ginger, and black-pepper syrup, and is as sweet as can be.” Read more

    Bet your friends to a round of Bimini Ring Game (left wall as you enter). Pro tip: don't swing your ring directly towards the hook, throw a touch left/right to swing in an arc for greater success.

    This ain’t your granny’s shuffleboard. Though they do offer bingo on some nights! Grab some cocktails and get after it! Then get after some grub served from a rotating line-up of food trucks!

    Shuffleboard, giant jenga, connect four, and bingo revived in the best way possible. Awesome decor, good vibes, friendly hipsters. And don't forget to check out the photo booth in the back!

    Really fun space to hang out during a rainy or crazy hot day. At $40 an hour, go with at least a group of 4 to make the activity affordable. Full bar and board games to enjoy as well.

    Super fun place. Go early to get a spot on the waiting list for a lane, it gets really busy on weekends. But even if you don't shuffle there's plenty of other games to play and great music.

    Flamingo, Tiki, Florida themed bar with shuffleboard, board games and killer DJs. Good for parties or just a night out with your squad. Plus they put those little umbrellas in your drinks ☺️

    Step inside this landlocked cruise ship of a bar for a round of shuffleboard. Play a game at one of the 10 shuffleboard courts while sipping tiki cocktails, complete with the requisite tiny umbrellas. Read more

    Fun activity for a group. Nice alternative to bowling, etc. Pretty trendy and full of hipsters, though. Get a cabana and the waitresses will take care of you.

    Great for dates and groups. Great drinks, fun games, and if you want you can get food from a nearby truck, dinosaur bbq, or dessert from ample hills, it's a no lose situation.

    Great place to bring visiting friends. Just be ready to put up with lots of bros and basics. But great music, cocktails and fun games

    Reminded me of a scene out of The Big Lebowski. Strongly advise to rent a cabana while you wait. $35 all you can drink. Most drinks are 11$ so it's definitely worth it!

    Was here for a friends 25th birthday and it couldn't have been more perfect. There's something for everyone and drinks are inexpensive. Super fun, look forward to coming back!

    It is actually quite beautiful here. Lots of different games and places to sit and hang. Music is on point. Great of big groups.

    Weekly cart food, $4 Pacifico and shuffleboard. What's not to like? Brooklyners hangiut for sure, but a lot of fun. Sunday guest vendors and burlesque shows are great :D

    I had a lot of fun here! Great activity for a group of friends, work event (which is what we did) or even a date. I'd definitely recommend checking them out.

    Great weekend group hangout spot. So many options afterwards. Ample Hills for Ice Cream, Insa for K-BBQ & Karaoke, or Dinosaur BBQ for American BBQ and live music.

    Fun and great for group events. Our waitress was definitely not the friendliest. Also make sure to eat before coming, the only food available is an indoor food truck serving Lebanese food.

    Great double date spot, who knew shuffleboard was so fun? And they have boozy cocktails and games while you wait

    At this shuffleboard club—a design mix between Florida, Cuba, and Brooklyn—everyone on staff can give you an introductory 2-min lesson. And be sure to check out the bathroom wallpaper!

    Great selection of board games, all free to play while you wait your turn for shuffleboard! Plus, the beach-y atmosphere is perfect for pretending it's summer.

    I dig the aesthetics here but little else. The bar doesn't seem big enough to accommodate the number of people that can fit in here. Also, their music selection is suspect.

    Super cute decor! One hour of shuffleboard is $40. There's usually a waiting list for the games so play their other games including wooden jenga while you wait.

    Everything about this place rocks. The decor, music, speciality drinks, and the game itself. Come with a few friends, leave making a few more. It's that kind of place.

    Shiny, new and fun! Great cocktails and a laid back vibe. Then again, shuffleboard seems to be for lazy alcoholics (which works fine for me).

    Great for groups, parties, special occasions, etc; but the wait time for the shuffleboard court is unreal. Get there early if you actually want to play

    Wanna go on a cruise? But can't afford it just yet? Look no further than The Royal Palms! You'll feel like you're whisked away even if for just an evening! #shuffleboard #bingo #flamingos #love

    Channel the 75yo in you. Play Uno or other games if you get tired of shuffling. Buy a pizza pie to share from the corner pizza stand.

    First time player & I had a fun time. Once you have a court, you do not get to play continously. You only get an hour of play and must get another ticket. Sucks, but only fair to everyone.

    Double check their tournament schedule before heading over! We couldn't get a court, though it was fun to watch the experts and play some giant connect four in a booth.

    Great for groups! Two bars, a taco truck, lots of room to mingle. It's a no-brainer spot if you need a place for a group of 20+ people.

    I really want to like this place (spacious, good drinks) but the wait to play is absurd and 95% of the crowd just read the How to be a Hipster Manual.

    When waiting for shuffleboard, they have many other awesome games to enjoy. Get a good group together and play Catan, Taboo, Cards Against Humanity or one of the many other games.
