This year saw the city of Leicester welcoming brand new tabletop cafe, Bean Gaming, a cosy haven for board gamers of all ages and skill sets.

After a somewhat rocky start on the crowd funding page, Kickstarter, the cafe turned bar and restaurant, opened its doors and received well deserved 5-star reviews from a wide array of customers.

With over 200 board games from the classics such as Monopoly to the more modern games gracing its shelves, it truly is a place with something for everyone.

At just £2 an hour per person, or £5 for a full day of games (4 hours on weekends, due to demand), customers have access to a full range of games and dedicated space for settling into longer sessions.

The gamers paradise also allows the opportunity to order food and drinks or even alcohol from the on-site restaurants.

To further expand their customer base, the cafe has arranged for a parent and baby group, aptly named the Bean Babies, where families may go along to socialise with others and play games in the child area.

In addition to this group, the cafe runs a regular Dungeons and Dragons group run by experienced players.

The aim is to help perspective Dungeon Masters to construct worlds and to allow people the chance to experience a campaign before ever having to create their own.

After running their 6-course Valentine’s Day menu and gaming event this week at £40 per couple, the cafe will have dealt with one of the busiest times of year before preparing for potential Easter events in the coming weeks.

Bean Gaming Cafe can be found at 22 Silver Street.
