The city’s one and only shuffleboard dive.

The lowdown

If you’re the type who likes to play games while you drink, here’s another one for you: shuffleboard! Serving the beer-and-ball community since 1967, Nancy Whiskey is one of the only bars in New York that offers this particular mechanical distraction (bank shuffleboard). The amicable, heavy-drinking working-stiff crowd is happy to let you play as long as you partake sufficiently in the wide range of cheap, intoxicating beverages, which start flowing at 11 a.m. sharp on weekdays. By the end of the night, some of the old-timers look as if they need to be carted out in wheelbarrows. And don’t worry about losing your motor skills — everyone else has.
