Community-Oriented Shuffleboard Bars

Block Party Boasts a Spacious Patio and Summery Entertainment

— June 12, 2018 — Tech
Block Party is a shuffleboard bar that is located in Highland Park, Los Angeles. The establishment has an overall wholesome presence as it is focused on the experience and the community. Launched by award-winning bartender Jason Eisner, Block Party's menu is dedicated to supporting "craft breweries and small production winemakers." This ultimately makes the product available to a wider audience. With regard to the food menu, the shuffleboard bar partners with Southern California food trucks and has a 'Bring Your Own Grub' policy, if one wishes to have outside food on the premises.

What makes Block Party a special place is its dedication to independent brewers, its spacious and inviting patio, as well as the cruise ship-sized shuffleboard. The combination of these features makes for a pleasant and laid-back experience.
