About

Airship : Tabletop Tavern (Atlanta)
- What will your story be?

Airship : Tabletop Tavern is an uncompromising tavern for board game, social deception game, tabletop RPG, and card game enthusiasts - it's designed with those gamers in mind. It's a place that feels like leather, wood, and lanterns with big glass mugs, great food, and new friends.

The purpose of our Kickstarter is to hit the initial legal and permit costs of beginning be able to provide a proof of public interest to our investors and lenders. We're excited about this, and we hope that you're excited too!

We're dedicated to a few ideas.

- a fun environment to meet new friends who love the same things that you do. It's a place of low lantern light, the feel of wood and leather, and a culture of acceptance and greeting.

- broad high quality table tops for a variety of games, comfortable chairs and couches that will want to make you hang out for hours.

- huge selection of board games, books, and minis.

- separated, but not isolated, nooks for serious gaming, sound absorbing walls without a closed door, so you feel connected to the room without the need to shout at each other.

- events and support for cosplayers, artists, and enthusiasts, ranging from geek art exhibitions to craft nights and more. 

- paying our full time servers and staff a living wage.

- a great, accessible location.

- owlbears.

One feature to the Airship : Tabletop Tavern that we are excited about is our in-house campaign system and story worlds for a variety of RPGs, where our favorite DMs can run stories, and new players can even try an RPG for the first time. 

FOOD

In addition to our huge selection of board games, we'll be serving Neapolitan Brick Oven Pizza, made fresh in store with a menu that will consider both meat people and vegetable people, and you healthy eaters.

+ Beer. Bottled and Draft, and with local selections. Wine. Ale.

Kickstarter Fees $3000

Risks and challenges

Opening a restaurant is difficult!

We've sat down with and consulted with several owners who have opened restaurants in Atlanta and opened successful gaming houses in other states. They have been a significant help, walking us through their startup and yearly budgets, unexpected costs, the permitting and legal process, and we'll continue to get advice and help from those experienced in the restaurant business every day :)
