Nestled at the foot of the charming Christmas Steps, Chance & Counters is Bristol's only dedicated Board-Game cafe/bar and has fast developed a cult-following. It's a lovingly-created passion project for its 3 owners. Inside you'll find literally 100s of board-games. The knowledgable team help you select a game to suit your vibe, buzzing with enthusiasm as they explain the rules. And off you go – into the rabbit-hole that is modern board-gaming.
As you play, stoke your creativity with a few carefully selected beers, wines or spirits. Or play it safe with a juice or coffee. There's food to fuel your campaign – cheese and meat platters, paninis and baguettes – but ultimately Chance & Counters is all about the games, and boy have they nailed it!
I had an americano coffee from here and it was absolutely delicious, one of the best coffees I’ve had in Bristol.
Great place to kill a few hours!
Great atmosphere and wonderful set up. The Wriggle was definitely an incentive to go.
Very friendly service - great coffee
An amazing place where you can get lost in game playing for hours...Brilliant bunch of people who know all about games and help you choose games and explain rules if needed, user-friendly and yummy fries, too.
