Today we travel to Southern California to highlight another industry favorite -- Game Häus Cafe located in Glendale!
Fun fact about Game Häus -- we discovered them by chance on Instagram and they were our first introduction to the board game café concept.
We quickly become enamored, scrolling through their social media filled with fun games, tasty food and drink options. After that day, we started researching others like them around the country and ultimately began the starting plans for Bard & Baker!
Game Häus is owned and operated by two friends, Rob and Terry, who had both worked in completely different industries but were frustrated with the lack of tabletop gaming options in SoCal.
They were enamored with the Snakes & Lattes concept and thought that it would do very well in their hometown, so they opened Game Häus in 2013 to immense excitement from their local community!
Social media posts are filled with guests playing games and having fun.
Today they boast a library over 1,100 games that continues to grow and their social media posts are filled with tasty baked goods (they love pies, as you can tell by their logo!), game-themed sandwiches, flatbreads and drinks, and featured games. They often feature guests in their space having fun playing games, which we love!
They have become a staple in the West Coast gaming community and have been an inspiration to us in our planning stages of Bard & Baker. We love what they are doing and are excited to see them celebrate their 5th anniversary this year!
