Our moving date is just around the corner. As of December 3, 2018, Annex Chess Club will be in a new location at 459 Bloor Street West.
The location is on the south side of Bloor just west of Spadina, at Major. For those who know the area, it’s the old Kinko’s / FedEx building, which now has a Sleep Country on the main floor.
The entrance is just to the right of the Sleep Country entrance, and we’ll be downstairs.
On a scale from the Brunswick House becoming a Rexall to the demolition of Honest Ed’s, this is a relatively minor change to the neighbourhood. The newly renovated basement space is clean and brightly lit, and we’re excited to start a new chapter of Annex Chess Club there!
Parking downtown is always a challenge, and this location is certainly no exception. If you’ve found a parking spot near our old location at 918 Bathurst, you’re just a few blocks away – or hopefully you can find something similar a bit closer.
Access by TTC remains highly convenient. Spadina station is very close, and especially if you take the Walmer Rd. exit from Spadina station at the west end of the subway platform, you’ll be right at the doorstep!
We look forward to seeing all our regulars, and hopefully a few new faces, at our new location!
