New ‘Geek Retreat’ gaming café opening in Harrow this month

Geek Retreat, the geek culture retailer, gaming café and events venue rolled into one, is opening in Harrow on 26th February. 

Sited at 324D Station Road and providing more local jobs it will offer the community a safe, friendly environment where people can come and enjoy their shared interests.

The café owners have said that fans of Marvel, Magic the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh! to Warhammer and Pokémon – and even traditional board games, are all welcome at the store! And you can even meet and play their hobbies in the café.


Customers can enjoy a high-quality menu with vegetarian, vegan and kids options, ensuring there’s something to suit everyone’s taste, which has been developed in partnership with leading food service firm, Booker.

Making sure that Geek Retreat provides an inclusive, welcoming, and social environment for its more vulnerable customers, like those on the autistic spectrum, or with mental health issues is also extremely important. It has a national partnership with the National Autistic Society and hopes to work locally and support community groups.

Geek Retreat Harrow said: “We are thrilled and exited to bring Geek Retreat to the heart of Harrows community. It offers something very different on the high street – a place to play and have fun, but also somewhere that it safe, inclusive and where people with the love of geek culture and games can meet and make friends.”

Local Charity shop Sue Ryder said: “We are excited for a Geek Retreat to come to Harrow; it will provide a space for the local community and is a great idea”.

Local passer-by’s said they have heard of us and are exited that there is a Geek Retreat coming to their town.

Geek Retreat is on track to open a total of 100 new stores in 2022, creating hundreds of new jobs around the UK. Its growth is echoed by the increasing popularity of board games, card trading and tabletop games which make up an industry worth £8 billion in the UK and is predicted to grow by 3.1% annually over the next three years.

All stores commit to a COVID-19 secure environment, with strict social distancing and hygiene measures in place, to give customers extra peace of mind that they can visit in confidence.
