Imperial College Road

Imperial College London

Step into our Maths-themed bar for a thirst quenching πnt (or 'pint' as they are normally called), and tackle a puzzle or two while you're there!

Did you know that we owe credit to mathematicians for a lot of the games we play? Start seeing Maths in a new way at AlgeBAR, where casual drinks meet games and puzzles. You can sit down with friends and family right by some of our mathematicians, who will give you tips and tricks to win classic games! You can also challenge a Chess Grandmaster at the bar from 12pm until 1.30pm on Saturday and Sunday. See you there!
