Paddington's board game bar and cafe.

If the owners of Paddington's new Club Sosay were playing The Game of Life, they'd be winning. Or, at the very least, they'd be advancing their plastic car to all of the best squares on the board — like the one that says "open up your own board game bar and cafe".

Encouraging people to have some good old-fashioned fun, and enjoy everything from Uno to Monopoly (plus Hungry Hungry Hippos, Risk, Scrabble and Chess, too), is the new addition to Latrobe Terrace's aim. And if you don't like those particular games, don't worry. More than 500 are available.

It's yet another one of those ideas that everyone wishes they'd thought of — and while the Greenslopes-based Go Lounge already has, as have plenty of other places around the globe, Club Sosay is giving the concept their own twist. Craft beer, wine and tapas are on offer at the 70-seat establishment, getting paired up with new pals is an option, learning new games is as simple as asking an in-house guru, and playing whatever you'd like will only set you back a fiver.

Plus, after graduating from a regular games night to its own permanent digs, the Paddington venue is just the beginning for Club Sosay. They've just welcomed Kookaburra Cafe into the space, so you can snack on their pizza and pasta while you play.
