Games Workshop Announces Warhammer Cafe Opening In North America
Though they’ve always been around, unique themed cafes are gaining more popularity in America. From bars that host board and video games like AFK Tavern to the newly announced Warhammer Cafe on its way. According to Games Workshop, word down the grapevine is that they’re coming to North America where everything is bigger and better. First announced in January, the crew teased some tantalizing details about what the cafe is all about. Check out their statement below:
Much more than just a store, the Warhammer Cafe will have a larger footprint, allowing for more gaming tables and enough space to run special events and activities. What’s more, you’ll be able to hang out and fuel your gaming and painting sessions with some tasty snacks and top-notch beverages.
The Warhammer Cafe will also act as a hub for the Warhammer hobby in North America, hosting guests from the Design Studio and a series of unique displays of Citadel miniatures. We (the Warhammer TV and Community teams) are super excited to check out the cafe, and you can bet we’ll be swinging by to help support the venue and report on the quality of the coffee.
You guys and gals in North America are some of our most passionate hobbyists, and over the next year, the Games Workshop staffers on your side of the pond will be doing everything they can to give you an ever better Warhammer experience. The Warhammer Cafe is really just the first of a host of cool new projects coming your way.”

The Warhammer Cafe will be opening in Grapevine, Texas, but there’s no official word on a grand opening date yet. Since Games Workshop just established the lease and will be updating the community over the next year, it may be sometime before any word gets out. However, the folks over at Spikey Bits have a source that say May 4th, but a year isn’t specified.
