We’re open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 7.30pm – 11pm, closed on Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays. Players are very welcome to arrive early. There is no volunteer on Mondays, which may be very quiet as a result.

We also hold regular events aimed at welcoming more women into chess. These are advertised via our ‘Casual Chess Cafe London’ Facebook group, @CasualChess on Twitter and via

If you’d like to promote your chess book, DVD or website, please just let us know. We’d love to have you as guest Player of the Day, show some live coverage of tournaments and hold simuls. Always making sure that people can play casual chess too…that’s what we’re here for!
