Draughts Hackney


The newest venue from one of the original London concept bars.

Draughts Hackney is slap bang in the middle of Dalston, attracting a wide demographic of colourful characters.

Our experience encourages customers to eat well, drink responsibly and play any one of a thousand games on our shelves.

Draughts Hackney feeds off curiosity. Our incredible listed building has seven interconnecting rooms, with a surprise around every corner, from the largest board game collection on display anywhere in the country to a cosy lounge, a happening dive bar, a full-size shuffleboard table, and a huge outdoor beer garden.

There aren’t many experiences in London that can last up to four hours, but our endless carousel of games will keep you entertained. Whether you’re popping in for a drink or staying for the evening, you can choose how you spend your time with us, just like you decide who to spend it with.
