Last weekend I discovered a great new bar/coffee shop and board game lounge in Parkdale called Go Lounge. It’s a quaint little cosy space located on Queen Street West, just steps from Roncesvalles that opened at the end of November. For those of you who are fans of Snakes & Lattes, just think of it as being a modest and much more laid-back version of it. I was a huge fan of Snakes & Lattes when it originally opened up a few years ago. I lived in the area, so would spend a lot of my nights playing board games with friends and loved ones there. I loved the fact that it belonged to a Parisian couple who baked fresh desserts and served baguette sandwiches just like in France. However, as the place’s popularity grew, it became less and less acessible and the once friendly staff, changed and wasn’t so nice anymore.
I was therefore thrilled to find out that a second board game lounge had opened up in the city. Basically, you can go play board games, have a pint or glass of wine as well as a tasty panini or yummy dessert in a super chill environment with great tunes playing in the background. Plus, you don’t have to pay to play their board games.
So if you’re looking for a fun new place to hang this week or weekend, try the Go Lounge. My favorite game: Cards Against Humanity. Hilarious!
