A typical cafe bridge event is a duplicate pairs bridge game set up over multiple cafes and restaurants. Pairs move to a new venue after each round, guided by a movement card or roadbook, while board sets remain on their starting tables throughout. The registration fee typically covers vouchers which are valid for refreshments at the venues, either for a single lunch or for a drink at each stop, depending on the style of event.
Cafe bridge has a social component, whether by raising money for a good cause, attracting sponsorship for bridge from regional institutions, or gaining custom for local businesses. Cafe drives also help make bridge visible to the wider public, thereby encouraging more people to consider taking it up.
There are two Cafe bridge events planned in Scotland. For details click on the links below.
