This cafe is one of our latest favorites, featured in our recent article on quirky combination coffee shops in NYC. The Brooklyn Strategist in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn runs after school programs for kids by day and becomes a BYOB game center for adults by night. They also serve French press coffee, teas, old fashioned sodas and snacks at the cafe.
The Brooklyn Strategist is run by a unique team, which includes a clinical psychologist/neuroscience researcher, a singer/actor, a writer/game designer, a cafe owner/nutrition expert, and a teacher. Available are over 350 board games, including rare and out of print games. Kids can learn card games, ancient strategy games, chess, checkers, role playing games, and more. For adults, there are trivia games, Dungeons & Dragons tournaments, a fantasy sport club and more.
