In the heart of downtown, Central Avenue is closed to traffic and the weekend is kicked off in style by locals and visitors alike.

The St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club – 599 Mirror Lake Drive N.
All things retro are cool again. As is the case with shuffleboard. Once a popular spectator sport, shuffleboard has made a comeback, thanks to hipster millennials.

With 65 courts, grandstands, and over 600 members, the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club is the oldest shuffleboard club in the world. You can experience the St. Pete Shuffle every Friday night from 7-11pm or open courts on Tuesday and Thursdays from 6-9pm, when the club opens its doors to the public.
