Games & Grounds Coffee House | Courtenay BC |


Please review our current business hours prior to planning your party!  (Want to host a private party that runs 'after hours'?  Contact us for more information.)

Leave your house clean and quiet and have your party at Games and Grounds!  We offer a comfortable, casual space for all kinds of parties, such as...

  • birthday parties
  • group/team parties
  • staff parties
  • fundraisers

Why Book A Party?

With party reservations you are assured that your whole group:

  • will be accommodated
  • can play in the same room as a group
  • will receive the BOGO / free play coupons
  • have access to the food and drink offered in the party package 

Please NOTE: We do not offer pizza or hot dogs as regular menu items.

You are welcome to take your chance as a small walk-in group (6 or less).  In fact, there are times when we encourage it!  However keep in mind that we offer gaming on a first-come, first-served basis so there may be a possibility that there aren’t enough gaming stations or tables available.  

IMPORTANT:  Games and Grounds reserves the right to limit walk-in group size for console game play options due to set-up time required.

When to Book Your Party

Booking ahead is required - a minimum of 2 weeks in advance.  Events for larger groups require a minimum notice of 4 weeks. 

Payment Information

There is a minimum charge for a party - which includes up to 8 participants.  If you have less than 8 participants, the charge is still the same. 

Payment Due

In order to confirm and guarantee your party booking, full payment is due upon booking, a minimum of two weeks prior to the party.  (Example:  If your party is on a Saturday, you must pay two Saturdays before your party. Please note that we are closed Sundays and Mondays.)  If you do NOT pay by this time your spot may be taken by someone else.  

Often we book for 8 participants with the agreement that should you have more than 8 we will receive payment for them on the day of the party.  (it's not unusual for a change in numbers, when you're looking at 9 or 10 children/youth.)  If you are expecting more than 8 we NEED to know in order to ensure we have enough food!

Cancellation / Rebooking

Cancelled parties will not be refunded.  However, we're reasonable folks!  If there have been unforeseen circumstances that make you cancel the party (accident, illness, family emergency, etc.) and you'd like to rebook - give us a call ASAP.  We can certainly re-book for another time.  Depending on when you cancel, there may be a small rebooking fee to cover expenses incurred.  

Length of Party Time ‘Restrictions’ for Certain Ages

We want to make sure that children have a fun and memorable time celebrating their birthday (or other event). 

The minimum age for 2 hour (typically birthday) parties is 8 years old.  (A few of the participants may be younger, as long as there is adequate adult supervision.)

Children ages 5 & 6 may experience frustration with certain games, if they don't experience success with them.  It can also be a hard time socially to share, take turns or feel that they are included with the group. 

Should you wish to have a party for a child these ages, we will offer a 1 hour party only.  It is quick and includes 45 minutes of playing, with the other 15 minutes dedicated to the cake and presents.   We also will limit the group size to 5 participants for 5-year-olds or 6 participants for 6-year-olds, including the birthday person, and ask that 2 adults be present to monitor the group dynamics. 

Children 7 years old typically have a more tolerant attitude for taking turns, but still may have difficulty with mastering some of the games and managing themselves in a group situation for a long time.  For this age group we will offer either a 1 hour or a 1-1/2 hour party.  The maximum group size can be 7 participants, including the birthday person.  For this age we require one adult be present to monitor the group dynamics.  

Note that there is no price break when you have under 8 participants, however the food and drink supplied will be for 8, allowing the adults to partake if they wish.  Unless you are playing table top games, these parties will be held in the console room exclusively.  This provides a smaller more intimate setting where parents have an easier time monitoring the group. 

 Food and Drink:

With the exception of birthday cakes, outside food and drink are not permitted (special diets are not accommodated).  Party participants and their parents (who are staying on-site) are welcome to enjoy the food and beverages we offer on-site.  For more information about what we offer, please ask.   We have a limited number of GF and vegetarian options.
