The setting was very loud which made it difficult to play the games. For the entry fee we could have just bought a game to play at home. Drinks and food were expensive for what they were. That said, I've spent more on entry to...More

Great afternoon playing games, the 4 hours fly by. The only downside is getting a table in the first place, as it was a 1.5-hour wait and you have to wait in the cafe - it would be better if you could leave a deposit...More
