The London Shuffle Club will open its doors on Wed 12th Oct to give Londoners the chance to try their hand at Shuffleboarding, the classic American game that is taking Brooklyn by storm.
Shuffleboarding can be dated back as far as Henry VIII and is like a mash up between ten-pin bowling and curling, only with better shoes (you can wear what you want).
Founder of The London Shuffle Club, Graeme Hawkins said “We’re taking our inspiration from Shuffleboard’s recent renaissance in Brooklyn and Miami where it is seriously starting to take off in fashionable off-the-beaten-track warehouses. The game’s appeal is in just how easy it is, and it won’t take long before you feel like you’re good enough to go pro."
The London Shuffle Club will occupy the entire top floor of the iconic Truman Brewery in Shoreditch for three months. The space will celebrate the building’s industrial look giving it an underground party vibe - think bespoke neon lighting and sexy Miami-style art deco styling. Pop up bar specialists Platterform will be on hand to serve up classic cocktails and Americana inspired food.
The London Shuffle Club will be open to the public seven days a week and is running Monday leagues over the first five weeks that will culminate in a finals night when they will crown London’s Top Shufflers of 2016. Those looking to join the leagues should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
