Bangkok’s got a brand new board game cafe practically made for BTS commuters. 

Just opened last week, Board Game Station at BTS Ari is a new hangout for tabletoppers that’s conveniently perched inside BTS Ari. In addition to some tables to throw down D20s and cards, it sells hundreds of games in Thai and their original languages. 

In a nod to social-distancing, visitors are advised to reserve a table before coming. 

Unfortunately, those visitors not arriving via BTS must buy a ticket to get past the turnstiles to the cafe located inside. 

The cafe is billed as the first board game cafe located inside a skytrain station. More branches may follow if this one succeeds, according to owner Nitchanan “Moo” Riensombat. 

The Board Game Station at BTS Ari is currently open 10am to 8pm. It’s located next to exit No. 1 of BTS Ari.
