As a day-drinking spot, Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club has a lot going for it. They have 10 shuffleboard courts that you can rent by the hour, there’s a station where you can rent board games, and there are plenty of places to sit. They also have two bars. And all of that makes it pretty ideal for big groups. (The space is huge.) This tropical-themed bar is essentially an indoor pool party without a pool, and you could probably pass out in a corner and not get found for several hours. Sounds like we found your next birthday venue.
