About Counter Culture Board Game Cafe & Bar
Wellington's premier board game cafe and bar. We have over 500 board games on the shelf to choose from, a wide selection of food for lunch, brunch (weekends) and dinner, Good Fortune coffee, wine, cocktails and local craft beer on tap.
I love Counter Culture. I make sure I visit every time I’m in Wellington on a business trip. Great range of games, good beer, and food that caters for different dietary requirements. The staff are really friendly and helpful too.
A great place to come to when we're at a loose end. So many games to choose from, although some are needing some TLC now. The staff are always really welcoming. Air conditioning would be good. It can get really hot! I think it's a shame the coffee machine seems to be shut down over an hour before closing time. I haven't encountered another cafe that does this.
Great fun was had by all. Excellent recommendation from staff: cockroach poker for the win!
Absolutely incredible establishment, amazing value and awesome staff.
A great place to hang out with friends and grab a game off the shelf. ResDiary was super easy as well.
The food was delicious and service very friendly
Thank you for a great night :) especially helpful bar staff!
We had a small all-day (Sunday) Scrabble tournament, first time at this venue. All 10 players reported that they thoroughly enjoyed the setting: funky decor, comfortable chairs, friendly service, clean and delicious food, excellent coffee, great range of drinks. An overall great vibe. We thought Counter Culture had the balance right in all things. Would love to play a tournament here again some time.
We were a work group and some of our group was a bit weary about going. But afterwards, they raved about the place and said it was a great decision to go. You might see us back! Thanks again.
Staff are nice, good selection of board games, we like the big guy with a beard and the guy without the beard.
We had a fantastic night. Lots of fun with a huge amount of games and very helpful staff.
We love coming to the cafe! The staff are always super helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. So fun learning new games with their help.
Atmosphere wise its pretty packed. If its a full house, it would be too noisy but on that note, it means everyone is enjoying themselves :) Allowing a bit more space between tables would make it more comfortable
It's a really convenient place to meet with others and play board games. They have hundreds of games, nice staff and a good atmosphere. Chips are very good, other food is a tad pricy but nothing unusual for Wellington.
Lovely staff, great board game selection
Awesome place with amazing staff who helped us pick a game.
Great friendly staff who helped us choose a game and checked on us while we were playing it.
Booked a table for a little team year-end celebration. It was our first time there and will DEFINITELY be booking again!!! The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was tasy and reasonably priced, there were plenty of different drinks to choose from that weren't too expensive, and the GAMES. So many games to choose from, and all well preserved. Can't wait to go back !
Had a great time, thank you
Great night out! Fab service...good fun all round
It's always a good time out
Lovely evening, as always. Thanks!
From the moment you walk in you feel like it's a mix of a bar, restaurant, and your mates place you go to play games years ago. It's friendly, welcoming and the service was excellent and laid back. Plus. Honestly one of the best burgers I've had in ages. Loved our time here.
Very enjoyable venue. was great for our office christmas party!
Great place - awesome staff, fantastic games, awesome food and drink - will be back!
