Venue

You’ll find us in the upstairs in Leon, on Tottenham Court Rd near the corner with Stephen Street, London, W1T 1BJ (5 minutes walk from Tottenham Court Rd tube), Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 7:30pm – 10pm. Walk straight up Tottenham Court Rd, pass Stephen St and you’ll see Leon on the left.

Yummy food and soft/hot drinks are available – you must buy something to take part please, unless you’re on a low income. It’s free to play, except on Fridays when a minimum donation of £3 or more is collected towards running costs (including the provision of free chess lessons for women). Women and those from other groups currently underrepresented in mainstream chess, always play free.

We’re open every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 7.30pm – 10pm, closed on Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays. From 24th December 2019 until 1st January 2020 inclusive, Leon will close at 6pm (and will be closed entirely on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day). Some day time sessions will take place during ‘Twixtmas’ – please check our Facebook group ‘Casual Chess Cafe London’ for details.
