Mox Boarding House

The just-opened Mox Boarding House in Bellevue has so many games to choose from it'll blow your mind! Three times the size of its Ballard cousin Card Kingdom & Café Mox, Mox Boarding House is a wonderful place with endless things to see and do. Try a Crater Lake Root Beer Float while you're playing What's It? orThe Magic Labyrinth, then choose a bite to eat from the full-service menu that includes everything from Rumaki (pineapple wrapped in bacon) and Wonton Wrapped Mozzarella to a new spin on a kid favorite -  7 Cheese Mac N’ Cheese.

Insider Tip: Mox Boarding House has private rooms available if you're looking for a place to hold your next party or Mom's Night Out.
