Cafe Games @ University Hotel

Once a month, on a Wednesday, the Cafe Games club meets up for a night of boardgames and socialising, with food and wine within easy reach.

Our new venue in Lygon Street is the University Hotel, at 272 Lygon Street, Carlton (see map below)

  • We’ve booked the upstairs function room, but if there’s not many people downstairs, feel free to play wherever you want.
  • We can play games in large groups, or small groups, it’s all fine.
  • From 7pm to about 11pm …

If you’d like to get notified each time Cafe Games is run, send a blank email to . If you’re a FaceTime member, you can join the “Fun & Games” group there.

The Venue: University Hotel

University Hotel is like a mini pub with an intriguing range of alcohols on tab, and a typical pub menu (eg Parma – $17) – bar menu

Please bring Games

This new venue has no games of its own so PLEASE I heartily encourage you to bring your own boardgames – everyone should own games – at least a cheap pack of cards! (Buy some?) Best social games are ones for 4-6 players and don’t take much longer than an hour … but feel free to break those rules! Anything goes, from Pictionary, Snap, Jenga and Uno, to 500, Cluedo and Ticket-to-Ride! (our big list of boardgames) We normally play in small groups, feel free to watch or ask to join in!

Pub-style, pay for your food and drink at the counter.

Getting There

I can highly recommend catching public transport to the event – trains to Melbourne Central always meet with frequent trams up Swanston street, then it’s a short walk along Grattan Street to Lygon street. On the other hand, if you must drive, parking at that time of day is suprisingly free and plentiful, even in the Lygon street district!. Remember this is the South end of Lygon street!!


If you’re from or, remember to leave Feedback after the event to let others know if you had fun! (Use those sites to leave ratings/feedback)
