Spaces at Draughts Hackney


Draughts Hackney is located in the old F. Cooke pie and Mash shop on Kingsland High Street. We have seven interconnecting spaces, which we are able to segregate into smaller sections. As well as having several Grade listed features, we have ample power, a huge garden, strong Wi-Fi connection, a podcast room, and an industrial-sized kitchen.


Our outside space at Draughts Hackney can host up to 100 people for summer parties, team building, Christmas drinks, or a networking event with a difference. Connected to our Conservatory and Dive Bar, we can build a party atmosphere from the inside out, with a full-sized shuffle table, Corn Hole, and over 1,000 tabletop games. As a wet weather option, we can even add our stunning ballroom with private access to the conservatory. The juxtaposition between the rooms at Draughts means your guests never know what to expect.


The studio at Draughts has space for between 8 and 10 guests to meet in a unique boardroom setting. Long gone are the days of boring meetings in stuffy hotels. Draughts gives you the opportunity to relax in a vibrant, creative space, whilst maintaining the privacy needed for senior discussions. Our table can be easily transformed from the smooth wooden surface of a boardroom desk, to the alluring felt of a gaming arena.

About Draughts Hackney


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.
