Formally known as Durty Nelly’s, Ekkamai Beer House has now reopened. Although seemingly similar to most other Irish pubs, we felt it was worth writing about due to its hidden gem on the third floor…a shuffle board table.

Like most people, we had no idea what shuffle board is until we saw it and tried it. Then, we became a little obsessed.

You need two teams, a long table covered in sand, 4 blue weights and 4 red weights. The teams take it in turns to slide one of their weights down the table. The aim is to get your weight to the end of the table (where the highest points are scored) without falling off the sides and end of the table…it’s a lot harder and more fun than it sounds!

The end of the table is divided into four areas scoring 4 points, 3 points, 2 points or 1 point. There are variations on how to score but we simple counted up how many weights were left on the table and how many points each weight had scored. But, please bare in mind, all our rules and information were provided by Google.

In addition, there is a pool table, duke box and live music on an evening. The menu was extensive, well priced and really tasty. But for us, the real draw was definitely shuffle board!
