Draughts Waterloo is nestled inside a disused railway arch under Waterloo Station. The revealed brickwork combined with its entrance via the Leake Street Graffiti Tunnel gives this "board game bar" an unexpected edge. Once inside, the high ceilings work in contract to its intimate and cosy atmosphere.

The whole venue can seat 150 people, whether they are dipping into the cocktail menu and sharing patters of playing one of the thousand games on display.

The mezzanine level allows for private groups of up to 70 guests for drinks receptions, parties, dinners, or all-out gaming warfare.

More about  Draughts Waterloo

Draughts Waterloo is located in the infamous Leake Street Graffiti Tunnel, less than two minutes from the London Eye and under Waterloo Station.

Housed inside a decommissioned railway arch, its high ceilings and revealed brickwork operate in tandem to create a welcome juxtaposition: a spacious yet intimate atmosphere.

We have over a thousand games on our shelves, encouraging people to disconnect from technology and reconnect with each other.

Our food & drinks are carefully curated and we invite our guests to eat heartily, drink responsibly and above all, remember what it means to play.
