Dark Matter Cafe is Durham’s first and only Gaming Cafe and Bar with a mass of video and board games to play in store! So you can visit, enjoy reading a comic, have a great drink, and enjoy some mouth watering food, then learn to play a new card game, or enjoy your favourite, while been entertained by the cartoons on our TVs and take a break out to enjoy one of our over 8500 games to play!
Here at Dark Matter Cafe the fun doesn’t just stop after hours, we run event nights throughout the week, such as Magic the Gathering, Dragon Ball, Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon. Dark Matter Cafe is always dedicated to bringing you new and exciting entertainment for you, your friend, and family.
We are a comfy family friendly environment, with plush seating and interiors, TVs, plenty to keep the kids entertained, and a big selection of board games, card games, merchandise and a small range of comics to read.
We are Dog Friendly (as long as we can have cuddles) so bring your furry four-legged friends as well.
We are an official venue for Wizards of the Coast (Magic the Gathering and Dungeons and Dragons), and Pokemon, so all of our events are ran legitimately, fairly, and within a set specific format, with experienced help on hand.
Our menus ranges from the great quality meals from snacks to burgers and sandwiches. We also boast some of the finest, if not THE finest coffee around. We hand craft our drinks to your requirements, with a range of syrups to hand.
If that hasn’t got you interested yet, I don’t know what will! We look forward to meeting you soon.
