Royal Palms in Bucktown feels like the world’s most photogenic cruise ship in the best way possible. The shuffleboard courts are first come, first served and can get backed up on the weekends, but there’s enough room to drink comfortably and plenty of other games to keep you occupied. There’s also a food truck dock with a sliding garage door so you can place your order without going outside, and a rooftop patio with a bar, complimentary sunscreen, and a winner-stays-on shuffleboard court.
