For Immediate Release
NEW YORK, June 3, 2019 — Hex & Company is excited to announce the launch of a Kickstarter campaign, bringing a new location to the Upper East Side of Manhattan. A collaboration between the owners of New York City’s three existing board game cafes, it will retain the successful programming and features while elevating key aspects of the experience.
Hex & Company already operates Manhattan’s largest board game cafe, located on Broadway at 112th Street. Patrons gain access to a library of hundreds of board games to play during their visit, with even more available for purchase. The store also serves small plates, locally-roasted coffee, and a wide range of beer, wine, and cider options. Hex & Company has hosted hundreds of public and private events, from corporate outings to bachelorette and birthday parties.
The Upper East Side location, at 76th Street and First Avenue, will feature a menu developed in consultation with Ducks Eatery chef Will Horowitz. These comfort food favorites include house-smoked meat and fish, boozy milkshakes, and grilled pizzas. This location is also adding cocktails and mocktails to an already outstanding craft beer list.
“Our board game library will feature all of the classics and plenty of titles you haven’t played before,” says Greg May, one of the owners. “And we’re proud to offer a home to local and independent game designers In fact, one of our stretch goals for the Kickstarter campaign is to ‘pay it forward’- using some of the funds to back indie tabletop games.”
“We’re really proud of what we bring to our neighborhoods,” said Mark Miller, co-owner. “Our mission is to create safe spaces where all ages can come in and be engaged socially and intellectually.” This philosophy is reflected through the store’s family-friendly and community-building initiatives, including the after-school program that has delighted thousands of children over the last eight years.
