The Round Table is kicking 2017 off with a new tradition!

On Saturday the 31st of December, The Round Table, along with musician and featured pianist, Andrew Liorti, will be bringing you a night to remember with a piano sing along!


What IS a ‘Sing Along’?

Stemming from a piano bar (also known as a piano lounge) which consists of a piano or electronic keyboard played by a professional musician, located in a cocktail lounge, bar, hotel lobby, office building lobby, restaurant, or on a cruise ship. In this case, it’s located at Castle Camelot a.k.a. The Round Table on 32 Essex Street in Guelph.

Patrons can request a song from the list of music provided by Mr. Liorti (unless he’s feeling adventurous) by writing the request down on a napkin and handing it to him. (we’ll provide the napkins). Then, our amazing Round Table patrons will sing as a group, without microphones! The night will be filled with special cocktails, great food and an atmosphere filled with fellowship and love!

PLUS, let’s not forget this is thee board game tavern of Guelph! So we should try and play a few games too!

The cost for this event is $90 which acts as a gift coin toward food and drink for that night only! We’ll provide champagne at midnight so everyone can throw a toast to another amazing year in the past and bring forward a new year! The event is going to have limited seating, so book quickly and book by buying your tickets below and we’ll enter you into our reservation system!


Spread the word of our event too!  HERE’S HOW…


We’re excited to announce that our partner location, Afterlife Video Game Lounge is now officially soft-opened!

What does soft opening mean?
It means that we’re open for business with semi-limited hours, our full kitchen, and virgin drink services. It also means that our grand opening is only a few weeks away! After our grand opening, we’ll be offering a huge cocktail menu, similar to the one we have here at The Round Table. In the meantime, please visit us over at Afterlife to check out our growing video game library, coffee service, and even some new menu items exclusive to that location!

Where is Afterlife?
Afterlife is located in the heart of downtown Guelph at 101 Wyndham St. North, just next to Old Quebec Street. Look for our black awning, and check out our video-game themed window displays!

What is a video game lounge?
A video game lounge is a relaxed cocktail bar where you can sit down to enjoy themed drinks and foods while you play video games, or watch video game tournaments streamed to our HD TVs. Our “Retro Pods” are set up with tons of classic consoles (NES, SNES, N64, Playstation, etc.) hooked up to CRT televisons to give you that classic retro experience. If you’re looking for something a little more modern, come play Smash Bros on our Wii U, or rock out some Halo on one of our XBOX 360s! When you visit, check out our menu, and order some delicious snacks to fill your HP and power you up while you game!

Is it kid friendly?
Of course! After our grand opening, we’ll be offering bar services late into the evening. However, during the day, kids are more than welcome to come in for snacks, milkshakes and desserts, and play on our wide variety of game consoles! If your child loves video games, contact us to find out about birthday reservations!

What’s next?
Over the coming months, we’ll be improving Afterlife all of the time by expanding our menu, adding games and game consoles to our library, and starting up drink services! All of this is a big endeavor and your support during our soft opening is really appreciated! Please stop by to check the place out, play a few games, and make sure to tell your friends! The Round Table has been in business for a little over a year, and we’ve seen an awesome community grow here. We can’t wait to see the same thing happen at Afterlife!



You and your friends!


Hey friends, It’s the height of Prohibition in 1920s Guelph, and there’s a mob war brewing between the South Side Sleeman Gangsters and the Northern Gofton Mob Outfit. The two ruthless crime leaders Hal Sapone and Beanie O’Dannon have finally reached an agreement on bootlegging practices in Guelph and have decided to pull together resources to undergo a collaborative effort with criminal endeavors.

On the surface, this strategy seems similar to bailing out a sinking ship with tin cups, nevertheless.

Recently, gangsters from the north and south have been spotted together at various speakeasies throughout Wellington County, but the tension in the air is always thick enough to be cut with a knife. However, this newfound relationship between the opposing mob bosses has served, thus far, to inhibit gratuitous bloodshed as in the past. Part of the success of this truce is that both crime bosses have found new dames, thereby intertwining more mutual relationships between the two factions.

The two gangs have set an official date to meet at Hal Sapone’s Grand Gatsby Round Table Speakeasy to resolve all remaining differences. Will these two underground organizations resolve their disputes or will a massive melee erupt, rekindling the fatal flames between them?

This is where your story begins!


The Round Table Board Game Tavern located at 32 Essex Street, Guelph ON, N1H 3K8.


Join us on Friday, December 2nd at 7:00pm for another wild and crazy murder mystery dinner!


Because murder mysteries ROCK!

Your character and clues will be distributed when you arrive.  If you wish to dress up, we are going for a 1920’s Chicago mobster theme!

We’ve already introduced you to our epic scale Pathfinder campaign set in the Legacy of Mana campaign setting – created by our owner, Thomas Gofton. Now we’re excited to say that the campaign guide has been picked up for publishing by Norse Foundry, the same company that provides our metal and stone dice, as their first foray into role-playing supplement publishing.

The setting book is on Kickstarter now, and is nearly 50 percent funded at the time of writing (less than half a day into the campaign). If you’re participating in our epic scale Pathfinder campaign, we highly recommend backing the project to receive at least the digital version of the new book. If you’re not participating in our campaign but you’re a big role-playing game enthusiast, check it out anyways! This is a totally unique setting that introduces classes and races that will shake up your campaigns and create a totally fresh feeling experience.



The holidays are right around the corner, and it’s time to start booking parties for families and businesses. Here at the Round Table, we’re already planning ahead for the holiday season, and we’re excited to host your holiday event. We’ll be a little over a year old, this holiday season, and we’re better equipped than ever to welcome you in out of the cold. We’re expanding our menu well before the holidays, with heartier warm food, including crispy paninis, and piping hot pizzas made with specialty ingredients like prosciutto, and sundried tomatoes. We’ve also recently upgraded our cappuccino machine so that we can make better lattes and espressos than ever. We use only Monigrams’ premium coffee beans so all of our coffee has a rich full taste. We’ll also have warm holiday classics on offer, like hot cocoa, and raspberry hot chocolate. Our food and drink selections are the perfect way to warm up when you visit us at the Round Table, but we’re offering more than just a meal; we’re offering access to our library of over 350 games. If you’re planning an event for family or for your business, come to the Round Table, and turn it into a fun team-building exercise with our selection of competitive or cooperative games. We believe that the holidays are about togetherness and fun, so what better way to celebrate the holidays than by bringing people together to play some classic board games.

To book your holiday party at the Round Table, or for any other enquiries, email, or come visit us at 32 Essex Street.
