Party Gaming Options

We have relinquished approximately half of the space we previously rented to our new landlord and are undergoing renovations to update our newly configured space.  As we now have less space we are no longer able to provide Pool, Air Hockey or Foosball as options.   

As mentioned on Party Info Page, parties for 6 year olds will only be 1 hour in length, and parties for 7 year olds can be 1 to 1-1/2hrs.  Unless you choose 'table top gaming' as your option, these parties will be held only in the Console Room.    If you're having a family party with multiple ages (including multiple adults for supervision) then these constraints are not applicable.

Console Room (Regular and Retro)




Computer Room



This is our 'old' computer room - our 'new' one is currently being built. 

Table Top Gaming (Tables)



We can set aside a table/tables for a party, in the general gaming area.  Party participants may choose the games from our Game Shelves, obviously age appropriate.

This play option is great, but please note that our staff cannot instruct participants on games, so it may require a parent/guardian to assist with rules for games that are not familiar to the children/youth.  We also ask that parents/guardians make sure that games are put back into their boxes properly, and returned to the game shelf prior to choosing another game.  This includes ensuring that you check under and around the table for pieces that may have fallen down.  You are also welcome to bring your own games in to play, please advise staff if you are doing this!

This area also has space to play RPG's, or tables for miniature gaming.  It really depends on what your group is interested in playing - but we can generally maneuver the tables to provide a variety of gaming experiences for you!  Please note that we do not have any equipment for these types of games... so your group would have to bring in what is required.  We do have table tops and scenery that can be used, however.


 In addition to the Gaming Area, we also have a

Coffee Area



This area is located immediately in front of the 'coffee counter'.  The Coffee Area provides several tables for patrons to enjoy our tasty food and drink.

For those adults who are staying while their children attend a party, you are welcome to sit in this area and enjoy our fare.  Note that the parent of the 'birthday' child is responsible for overseeing the party participants.  For older groups the parent can certainly enjoy some free time in this area, as well.

We have baskets of toys available for children to play with, however we no longer have a dedicated space.  Parents must supervise their children at all times to ensure their safety, and the comfort and safety of all our other customers, too. 

In the nicer weather we have tables outside, which is a great option for customers out for a walk with pets or those who just want to enjoy the fresh air. There is NO smoking in this area.

Fundraiser?  Our business is a fun place to hold one.
