Play at our place!

For just $5 a person you get three hours to play our library of 500+ tabletop games. You can sit and play while enjoying something from our menu along with barista-made coffee or something stronger from the bar. 

BrainHackr is a casual game space, you don’t need to be an avid gamer or even have any idea about board games to come in and have some fun. Our team will help you find games suited to you and even get you set up and started with quick tutorials. We also run regular events where you can join other groups of gamers for ‘how to play’ sessions.

While we love to see younger gamers getting into board games we do require all minors to be accompanied by a parent/guardian during our usual hours, check out our ‘Family Friendly’ days for exceptions.

Got questions?

Want to book a session?

You can quickly and easily book a Stay’n’Play session using our online booking system. You don’t even need to pay ahead when booking for less than 6 people. Persons under 18 must always be accompanied by a paying parent/guardian.

If you need to book a table for groups of more than 6 please visit the group bookings page. If you book multiple tables as separate bookings through this page we cannot guarantee your tables will be next to each other.

No minors (under 18) permitted on Friday nights from 8pm

Is the bar kid friendly

While we do have board games we are predominately an adult venue where alcohol is served and games with adult themes are freely played. Persons under the age of 18 are not permitted in the bar/cafe area during our adults only time on Friday nights from 8pm, during other times minors must be accompanied by their parent or guardian at all times.

It is important to note that BrainHackr openly promotes the consumption of alcohol and utilises board games as a method to do so, strict adult supervision is required for any minors. We do have a 'family friendly' day once per month on a Saturday where the bar is closed and families can play in a more comfortable atmosphere, check out our Facebook page for details on the next family day.

We also do not permit children under 3 into the cafe for health and safety reasons (those meeples can sure be tasty!).

Do you do childrens parties

We do have limited childrens party options available! To check out the details click here

To ensure your group has a great time, and to make sure there is no disruption to our other customers childrens parties are required to exclusively hire the entire cafe. We will include some organised games, snacks, and take home bags so you don't need to do any work. The only thing we don't do is supervise, so you'll need to make sure you have enough adults in attendance.

Do you have a liquor licence

We certainly do, whats better than games, friends and a few drinks! As we are a licenced venue all persons under 18 must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. We are also required to state (in a robot voice) A person under 18 who obtains or consumes liquor on our premises, and the person who supplies liquor to the person under 18, are each guilty of an offence under the Liquor Licencing Act 1997 (Beep Boop).

What games do you have to play

We have a full cafe menu with light meals, sides and snacks suitable for lunch or dinner. We have soft drinks, water, coffee, hot chocolate, milkshakes and alcoholic drinks available.

We do not permit outside food or drinks to be brought in, there are a few reasons for this including health department and insurance requirements!

We have plenty of options on our menu, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free items.

Can you accommodate a group larger than 6

We can accommodate groups of various sizes across multiple tables. The maximum number of persons able to fit on one table is 6. Group bookings require payment up front and larger groups are required to purchase catering packages to secure additional tables. Check out our group booking options here

Do you hire out the space for private events

It is possible to exclusively hire the gaming area for corporate events, game group meet ups, etc. Availability is limited and only available with catering packages. You can select 'exclusive use of the cafe' in our group booking tool here

Can I reserve a game

First check the library listing to make sure we have the game. We are expanding the range all the time. When booking a table you can request a specific game or games. We can’t guarantee your request but will certainly do our best, we recommend always having a couple of choices in mind.
