Make like a King at The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club

Meet your new source of recreational fun

Jonathan Schnapp and Ashley Albert don’t abide by the adage, out with the old, in with the new.

In fact, they’re all about the old: Today marks the debut of the lively duo’s gem, The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club.

Inside a 17,000-square-foot retrofitted Brooklyn warehouse, ten turquoise shuffleboard courts take main stage; vintage pool furniture and Floridian tchotchkes whisk you straight to Bubbe’s (even if you don’t have one).

Few Gen Yers know the ins and outs of the game. Fortunately, the waitstaff double as teachers — the kind who deliver lessons with a side of frozen pina coladas or draft beer. Chances are, you won’t break a sweat at this sport. But come nightfall, sidle up to the built-in bay and indulge in a rotating roster of food truck fare (Red Hook Lobster Pound, Morris Grilled Cheese).

Rest your laurels — and keep tabs on your competition — from the safety of a tented cabana (free for large parties).

More of a spectator? Post up at the stage and enjoy live music. Wednesday Bingo nights (hosted by Murray Hill and Linda Simpson) start March 12.

This one goes down in history.
