Bampot Bohemian House of Tea and Board Games
Bampot Bohemian House of Tea and Board Games is a new place to get your Settlers (or hopefully something less cliche) on in the Annex. Run by husband and wife duo Andrea and Mark Newell, the two were inspired by Czech tea houses - the complete opposite experience of English high tea.
The space is like a public living room with cozy corners featuring carpeted and cushioned seating platforms where you can remove your shoes and get comfy. An impressive selection of over 80 different kinds of teas - black, green, oolong, white, caffeine-free herbal and fruit infusions, plus their own house-made Bam Bam Chai - are served from their lovely and unique collection of teapots.
There are currently about 160 games to choose from, including some more obscure ones like Quarriors. It's $5 for unlimited play, or $3 if you order tea or some of their delicious vegetarian cuisine. Try the poutine soup.
New year, new tea! Check out the coziest comedy show in town, featuring some of the city’s very best!
