More about 

Draughts Hackney is set within a stunning Grade II listed building on Kingsland High Street. The venue dates back to the early 1900s, when it first became home to the F Cooke pie and mash shop. Over 100 years later, Draughts, London’s seminal board game bar, has reinjected its spaces with the buzz of a leading tabletop experience. Its seven interconnecting spaces hide a surprise around every corner, with over 1,000 games on its shelves, a full-size shuffleboard table, a dive bar & conservatory, and a huge outdoor space for garden games and live entertainment.
