On my first visit, when I walked into Geek Retreat there was a guy wearing a Sonic the hedgehog face mask and I thought to myself “Yeah, these are my people!”
So what is geek retreat? Well it’s a cafe, a shop, a place where you can hang out, play games, read comics and generally out.
Why am I telling you about this? Well we thought that Geek retreat was a great place so we spoke to Matthew, one of the owners, and he has agreed to set up some taster sessions for 6 person groups who have Autism or Asperger’s to hang out.
They have got video games, comics, board games, table top gaming, merchandise and a snack bar. It’s a very relaxed atmosphere, with music playing in the background and comfy sofas to sit on.
I’m looking forward to my next visit and will meet up with my friends there.
