When: On a Sunday 4pm - 8pm once a month - for the next upcoming Mahjong Club buy tickets here
Where: The Hanging Garden at My Neighbours the Dumplings, 165 Lower Clapton Road, London E5 8EQ
Our hugely popular monthly Mahjong club started at the end of 2021 in the hanging garden of our Clapton restaurant. The fundraiser event is in support of Hackney Chinese Community Services (@hackneychinese) and the work they do in the ESEA Community.
Mahjong is a much loved and popular game originating from China, played with 4 players using a set of 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols. Our Game Sittings: There are 5 tables with 4 players, which allows for 20 players at each time. This will allow everyone to alternate between playing a game, observing or time to have some food and mingle.
If you've never attended before and haven't ever played then please buy a Beginners ticket - this will enable you to join one of the 2 beginners tables where our Four Winds teachers will take you through the basics of the game and get you started by playing open hands with help and support from the teachers.
For those of you who have played before, then please buy a Regular Players ticket. You'll be able to sit at one of the three other tables - intermediate to advanced - and just get stuck in and play. There will still be some support on hand if you have any questions or can't remember a rule! (We play by Old Style Hong Kong Rules)
Our bar is open for beers, wines, sake and cocktails as well as teas and soft drinks. Our kitchen is open from 5pm onwards for dumplings and everything else on the menu. If you'd like to eat please ask a member of staff and they'll find you a table in the bar or restaurant. Please no eating whilst playing at the Mahjong tables.
