Jacobs Pop Up Cafe- Parkhurst

I went to check out Jacobs Pop Up Cafe the other night. It’s only around from May – August and it’s the most fun ever. You get unlimited FREE Jacobs coffee (with Oreos!) and you get to play board games for hours on end.
I love board games, especially Scrabble. I think people have kind of moved away from board games in favour of more glamourous things which is sad. I can remember spending hours as a kid playing Monopoly.

The Cafe itself is set up really prettily. Have a look at the pics, and go check out their Facebook page for deets on upcoming events.

” The Jacobs Board Game Café is situated at 69 11th Street Parkhurst and is open from Tuesdays – Sundays 10am – 10pm until the end of August, with some exceptions. The venue will also be hosting several small events throughout the next few months such as ladies evenings and speed dating and is available for personal bookings such as birthday parties, hen’s parties, brain storms etc. A schedule will be available at the café and on the “Jacobs Krönung South Africa” Facebook page. For further information or to make a booking please contact Kate Fitz-Gibbon on: kt.fitzgibbon@gmail.com

There was a big crowd of people playing 30 seconds the night we were there and they were making so much noise that we could barely hear ourselves think…. spoilt the experience slightly for me, but it was great to see them having fun!


This was so cool- in the middle of the evening the waiter and his “band” started playing songs- I loved it!

There aren’t many places where you can get something for nothing, so I’d definitely recommend this as a fun night out 🙂
