What we're about

Drink, eat and meet new people over the chessboard!

Our Club

Do you love chess? Do you enjoy playing chess while meeting new people over a drink or two in a casual and fun setting? If so, Pub Chess is for you! Chess players of all skill levels are welcome - whether you have played your entire life, used to play as a kid, or just started playing recently!

$12 gets you a drink/food ticket, entry to our weekly tournament (for fun, not rated) and casual play all evening from 7-11pm.

Where is it?

Trendy Pub in downtown Toronto:
The Madison Pub (14 Madison Ave) is just a short walk away from Spadina Station/Spadina and Bloor.

Who runs it?

Originally founded by one of Canada's top female players, Yzvetlina Orlova, Pub chess is now run by Anna and Anicca, sisters and chess enthusiasts, with assistance from our Pub Chess friend (and regular attendee), Mike!
