Boston has a long, proud history including Paul Revere and its infamous Tea Party, as well as, of course, the Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins, etc. In fact, you may be hard-pressed to find an American city with a more enthusiastic and/or devoted fan base than Boston. As such, it should come as no surprise that Boston and its surrounding areas offer plenty of bars and restaurants in which to soak up local culture, watch games, and, of course, to play shuffleboard. The following includes our favorite shuffleboard spots in the Boston community. And, in no time at all, you'll be saying, "Park your car in Harvard Yard," along with the best of them.
Kings Bowl - Boston
50 Dalton Street
Boston, MA 02115
Kings Bowl is all about good clean fun in a retro atmosphere with top-notch food and drink. In other words: This isn't your parents' bowling alley. Here, instead of beer and chips, you'll enjoy bacon Sriracha deviled eggs and kung pao fried cauliflower along with handcrafted cocktails. (But they serve plenty of beer, too.) Kings is a bowling alley first and foremost, and, as such, features 16 lanes, but you'll also find a regulation shuffleboard table here, along with air hockey, billiards and skeeball. It's like stepping back in time and letting your inner child go hog wild, but with better food. This is also a great venue to book for special events. Be sure to check out the website for frequent promos for additional savings.
70 Union Square
Somerville, MA 02143
Housed in a former police station, Brass Union boasts "thoughtfully crafted" food and drink alongside games and music in a venue that, ironically perhaps, feels like a speakeasy. You may very well feel like you've walked back in time - until, of course, you see the menu, which includes modern spins on American favorites like a Kobe beef hot dog, a lamb burger and plantain chips, to name a few. Brass Union is really two connected spaces, including a more formal front dining area perfect for a solid meal any day of the week, as well as a 30-seat bar in the rear that includes a 14-foot shuffleboard table, a vintage tabletop Pac-Man game, classic board games and a DJ booth for plenty of late-night devil-may-care fun. Also look for a patio with additional games when the Somerville weather allows, naturally.
1 Kendall Square
Cambridge, MA 02139
If you're in the mood for a shuffleboard spot with some real character, consider Cambridge's State Park. This is a "dive bar," but unlike so many that have popped up in recent history, State Park has a playful atmosphere that includes wrestling action figures and taxidermied animals throughout, as well as a legit focus on Southern cuisine, such as barbecue spaghetti and Nashville hot chicken. You may even wonder which side of the Mason-Dixon Line you're actually on. In addition to shuffleboard, you can also play pinball and pool at State Park, all while listening to a jukebox with all your favorite music from the '80s. Just a warning: You may have flashbacks to the rec rooms of your youth here, and we imagine that's precisely the owners' intention with all the tongue-in-cheek d�cor. Happy reminiscing.
Hopewell Bar and Kitchen
1277 Commonwealth Avenue
Allston, MA 02134
Cheers isn't the only Boston bar known for its hospitality. The staff of the relatively new Hopewell Bar and Kitchen may not know your name yet, but it's another hospitable Boston watering hole that also boasts fresh, local food, including a raw bar. That's right: Throw back some oysters and play away. And perhaps be glad Carla Tortelli isn't around to serve them to you with her characteristic attitude. That's because the focal point of this subterranean bar is surely the long shuffleboard table in the center of the room, but there's plenty of seating throughout for socializing and dining as well. Adding to the welcoming, neighborhood feel of Hopewell is the pool, pinball and arcade games, which will surely have you bonding with locals in no time, learning their names and maybe even becoming lifelong friends.
Cambridge Queen's Head
45 Quincy Street
Cambridge, MA 02138
Part of Harvard College's Office of Student Life, Cambridge Queen's Head seeks to provide a social space for Harvard undergraduates to kick back and relax responsibly. That means you'll find a comfortable and laidback environment with typical pub fare like mozzarella sticks and chicken wings. Here, you'll be able to enjoy trivia, karaoke and live music weekly, as well, of course, as shuffleboard.
