Coming soon to Chinatown: a new board game café


Published:

Board games and lattes are a popular combination in Toronto. With Parkdale’s Go Lounge and the Annex’s Snakes & Lattes showing no signs of slowing down, a new competitor is adding itself into the mix. Castle Board Game Café is opening soon at Spadina and College in the former Saigon Palace space.

The approximately 3,400-square-feet venue will seat about 90 people and will offer games like Cards Against Humanity and Blokus.

“Games bring people together,” says owner Gwen von Harten.

Castle will also have a communal table that seats about 14 people and will feature a different board game every week (Castle Panic will be the first one featured when the café opens up).

Von Harten is aiming for a mid-May opening.

Castle Board Game Café 454 Spadina Ave., 647-748-1955

Concert Review: Rascal Flatts bridges gap between pop and country for small Toronto crowd

The Rascal Flatts occupy a weird space within pop music. Despite their widespread, mainstream popularity, they are seen as too country to truly be a pop band but are also rejected by a segment of country music fans for a style of music that is heavily pop-influenced.
