To make a reservation, just
If you haven’t booked a table at Bastard Café before, we recommend you to click here and read about the prices and what a reservation includes and what other options you have. NOTICE that reservation is an extra service we provide for a fee, and it is not a deposit. You do not get the money back (but do get a bar voucher and free access to all our games).
Here’s a few highlights from the description below:
Reservation of specific games is not possible.
We reserve the rights to give the table away if you are more than 15 minutes late. In this case the booking fee is forfeit.
IMPORTANT!: If the “Book now” button further down is inactive it means your requests are unavailable. Choose another day, time and/or less people.
See you at the Bastard Café soon!

Choose a date above to see available times.
Add one or more dedicated Game Gurus to your reservation.
Please read more about dedicated Game Gurus here (scrolls down the page).
Gurus are booked for minimum one hour. We cannot guarantee a guru if the guru is booked less than 7 days ahead.
Would you like to open a bar tab for the duration of your visit? In Danish a “tab” is a “samlet regning”.
The bar tab cannot be split and is paid by the booker. You have to leave a driver’s license, passport or credit card in the bar as a deposit.
If you have further information or other requests please write a message. You can wish for a specific area in the café, but it’s not always we can guarantee it. Resevervations that requires multiple tables will always be seated as close to each other as possible.
If you have booked one or more gurus and have requests, info or questions for the gurus, you can write them here. This is also where you write if the guru(s) should be able to talk Danish.
NOTICE: This will only be read if one or more gurus have been booked.
Go back to the booking form.
You do not need to make a reservation to play games at Bastard Café. Just pop by. We have lots of free games and some that cost a bit. So only read on if you are planning an event or get together that needs, well, more planning than “just show up and see what happens”.
We never reserve more than 20%* of our tables for bookings, so you can always just pop by. We’re a busy place, so if it’s super important to get a seat we recommend you book well in advance.
You can make reservations both in the classic Bastard Café (known as Upstairs) or on the weekend (Wednesday to Sunday) in our brand new space, Downstairs.
You also have the opportunity to book our Awesome Gaming Table from GeekNSon (see it here) for 4-6 people in the Lounge (for the table you have to pay a deposit on top of the booking price. This deposit you’ll of course get back if the table is not destroyed after use).
Reservations are for a minimum of 4 persons.
At Bastard Café we run a first come, first-seated basis regarding table space. You never need to book in advance to get a table. Just swing by and look for one. Or check out which are our busy hours on Google first to get an idea of how easy it will be to find a table. We never reserve more than 20% of the tables to keep the place as open as possible for walk-ins, but we are indeed a busy place. Especially in weekends. So apply patience or show up earlier than you think.
However, a lot of our guests ask us about making a reservation, so we now accept a very limited number of reservations for groups of four or more.
All reservations are binding. In case of cancelation, a reservation has to be canceled no later than the day before at 12.00, or else the booking fee is forfeit.
If you have questions before completing the form, please send a mail to email@example.com (allow us up till 7 days to reply)
*20% is currently 30 seats Upstairs and 10 seats Downstairs.
Reservations cost 80 DKK per person Mon-Thu and 100 DKK Fri-Sun and holidays and in vacations (if you book as a member you get a 20% discount on all booked seats)* and includes:
*Reservations for children under 12 years cost 50 DKK pr. child, regardless of day and member status. Please note in the comments if any children and how many in the comments. The price difference will be reimbursed at the café when arriving.
Our dedicated Game Gurus can introduce you to many of the games in our selection, and guide you through the rules. A Game Guru costs 333 DKK per hour.
We often have volunteer game gurus helping everyone out with rules and game recommendations, but if you want to book a dedicated Game Guru exclusively for your group, this is possible for 333 DKK pr. guru pr. hour (min. 1 hour). We recommend 1 Guru pr. 10 persons.
If the dedicated Guru(s) should know specific games or genre of games or be able to speak Danish, please say so in the comments.
The Guru is booked from the time the reservation starts unless other is asked for in the comments.
Please notice if you would like a Game Guru we cannot guarantee a guru unless you book at least 7 days ahead, but we will try our very best to get a guru. And in very busy periods we might not be able to find a guru. If we don’t succeed in getting a guru you will be reimbursed the guru fee, when you arrive at the café.
