Shuffleboard is an American sport that’s a mix between curling and ten pin bowling. There are now dedicated Shuffleboard bars in London, the permanent Little Shuffle Club and the winter pop-up, The London Shuffle Club, where you can learn and play.
The Little Shuffle Club is a bar and permanent table shuffle club in Shoreditch, opposite Box Park, and fits perfectly into a creative and relaxed area of London.
The bar is open plan loft style, with neon signs, a relaxed, fun and sociable atmosphere. There are 2 classic 16 foot shuffleboards and a U.K exclusive snap-back board. The Snap-back and one of the shuffleboards are bookable online. One of the boards is left available for walk-ins, catering to spontaneous Londoners. Board hire is £20 for an hour and bookable via the website.
My first question on arrival was ‘what is Table Shuffleboard and how do you play?’ You’ll be pleased to know there’s not many rules and it’s easy to follow. There are hosts on hand to explain the game and you can play table Shuffleboard with any team size, ideally 4-6 per team, making it a perfect group activity.
You can get excellent cocktails that change weekly, or you can select a craft beer from a changing rota from the fridge. The cocktails are so good, that’s it’s worth coming to The Little Shuffle Club just for that. The bar has no formalities, it’s a friendly, down to earth place where you can watch the games being played and socialise. The staff are friendly, extremely cool and helpful.
The Winter pop-up London Shuffle club is opening on 1st November at The Truman Brewery, just a short walk from the Little Shuffleclub. The London Shuffle Club has 12 shuffleboard courts, 2 table shuffle board and 2 corn hole courts. There’ll be D.J’s to provide entertainment and the delicious London Pizza Company will be feeding the hungry visitors. To hire a lane for an hour for 4-8 people in £40. There’s plenty of November dates available to book and Saturday’s in December.
The Little Shuffle Club is a perfect venue if you like to learn and try a new activity as well as drink wonderful cocktails and beer. It’s friendly, fun and social, perfect for work mates, friends and dates alike.
