After launching in London in 2019, Electric Shuffle opened its first U.S. location in Dallas.
The shuffleboard concept was created by the London-based hospitality group, Red Engine, which is also the mastermind behind the darts and dining concept, Flight Club.
When looking for a Dallas location for Electric Shuffle, the Red Engine team was drawn to a historic 1920s fire station locally referred to as Deep Ellum.
"Deep Ellum is the perfect home for the brand as it mixes the old with the new,” says David Ramsbottom, creative director of Electric Shuffle. The transformation of taking “classic, nostalgic elements and re-imagining them for a modern audience,” is what inspired the renovation. The space now includes two bars, seventeen shuffleboard tables as well as a private event space.
