Manhattan’s First And Only Board Game Cafe!

Featuring an immense library of over 480 games, The Uncommons brings a new concept to New York City. And there’s always something going on, with dozens of regular events. We’re one of the biggest venues for Magic: The Gathering in the area, and host everything from Netrunner tournaments to RPG nights and indie designer game showcases, along with casual gaming nights for folks to meet new friends. With free wi-fi, and a great location a block from Washington Square Park, we’re way more fun than any chain coffeehouse… and better for you than bar hopping.

Open from 8:30AM to midnight on weekdays and till 1 am on weekends, The Uncommons offers a full menu of food, drinks, and some of the best local espresso and coffee. $5+tax covers unlimited gaming, so you can sample as many games as you want to try. We even have a private “Board Room” available for rent- the perfect place for a birthday party. And we sell games too, with both classics and modern favorites available to take home. Check out our Menu and Game Library, and definitely reach out if you have any requests or suggestions!

And don’t just take our word for it, the New York Times recently covered our unique place in the New York landscape.
