GameHäus was started by Rob and Terry: we're two board game geeks from totally unrelated industries. When we discovered board gaming, we went looking for a great place to gather with our friends that would offer a few amenities:
Many of our favorite board game spots would have one or two of the above amenities, but we wanted to hang out at a board game spot that offered these things plus great atmosphere and a welcoming ambiance for seasoned gamers as well as those new to board gaming. We'd heard of board game cafes in Asia and Canada, but we couldn't find a true board game café in California; most cafés that claimed to offer board games would only have a few old copies of titles like Jenga and Monopoly on a small shelf.
Since Southern California had a vibrant and active board game community as well as a population geared to discovering new and fun activities, we thought that the time was right to bring a board game cafe to SoCal. Our search for a great space for our cafe ended when we found this amazing space at the historic Seeley Studios in Glendale; located inside a building that was designated a historic resource, our space at the Seeley Studios contained original brick walls, beautiful vintage electric meters and original steel pillars that evoke old Los Angeles. Ultimately, we hope to offer a warm and comfortable space that you'll enjoy visiting for some fun board games, good drinks and good food. Thanks for stopping by!
