ChessPalace is a really special place, and I hope chess players continue to come and support this location for years to come. It is very rare to find a location that is completely dedicated to chess. ChessPalace hosts chess tournaments, sells chess supplies, hosts chess speakers, and offers a location for players to come, hang out, and play. It's a wonderful place and a MUST VISIT for any chess fan.
With board or without it come and play - at least that worked with me. I was traveling to CA with short time on my hands and decided to visit this place for theirs Wednesday Knight tournament. Really good crow.
I'm actually George Shahin and I highly recommend Chess Place. The family who owns the place are some of the nicest people I have ever met. They have an excellent variety of merchandise and casual/tournament play is available.
Very cool little chess place to get chess books, clocks, tournament sets, and designer chess boards/sets. Employees are very friendly and go out of their way to help you. Expect to be greeted warmly when you arrive 🙂
Top service. Nice little intimate place. Will be playing there soon. I'll drop another rating about the atmosphere when I do play.
