Spaces in Draughts Waterloo

200 Reception

Whole Venue

From From £1,500.00 / Venue Fee

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.

200 Reception


From From £3,200.00 / Venue Fee & Min Spend

The mezzanine level at Draughts Waterloo has space for up to 70 people seated and 80 standing. Over-looking the rest of the venue it offers privacy for your party but retains the vibe and energy of a busy bar. With your own hosts, as well as a private bar and toilets, you'll have access to everything you need for a quality night out. Whether you're playing any of a thousand board games, eating dinner, or just having a pint and chatting with your friends, the mezzanine is a great balance between energetic and effortlessly relaxed.
