Shoreditch’s Brilliant Board Game Café • Proceed Clockwise

share on:

Board games can be a dicey business. Uno it’s likely to end in an argument but it’s always a Risk you’re willing to take.

Proceed Clockwise, Shoreditch’s newest quirky coffee shop is a brilliant addition to the city. Boasting over 600 different games – including both the classics (Monopoly, Cluedo, Risk, Jenga, Guess Who?) and some modern favourites (Exploding Kittens, Cards Against Humanity) – it’s the perfect spot for a nerdy and nostalgic get together with your mates.


Just off Brick Lane, Proceed Clockwise is more than just a café. There’s a bar serving up beers and wine, as well as a kitchen cooking up delicious pizzas, including salami and fennel, ‘nduja and gorgonzola, and even a Nutella pizza for pudding. So Scrabble some pals together for a bit of friendly competition.

So how does it work?
