Located in the famous Leake Street graffiti tunnel beneath Waterloo Station, Draughts has turned a once-dank railway arch into one of the city's most popular venues devoted to all things board games.

Spread over two floors and with over 1,000 unique games on the shelves, you can recreate Christmas at home or find a secluded spot to quietly unlock the mysteries of the universe. If the weather suddenly takes a turn (as often happens in London), this is the perfect spot to settle in and ride out the rain showers.

This quirky South Bank venue is perfect for a family board game session or as an alternative place to catch up with friends over a few drinks and some great food. With a seasonally changing menu and rotating drinks, Draughts is the perfect place for a light bite, as well as being a great option for grabbing something more substantial over a longer gaming session.
