wesome bars with shuffleboard tables

Why don’t more bars have shuffleboard tables?

It’s really the perfect bar game. Yet shuffleboard is still much less common than games like pool and darts.

Don’t get me wrong. I love pool and darts too. But I always get particularly excited when I discover a pub with a shuffleboard table.

Luckily, shuffleboard is gaining popularity as a bar game. And a growing number of bars across the U.S. now feature beautiful full-length or recreational size tables for their patrons.

You just need to know where to look.
