Description

Have you ever wandered down Strand and noticed two large hanging chess pieces outside a famous restaurant? The place also developed as a coffee house, and there were also chess matches between various coffee houses, but over time Simpsons emerged as the leading place for the best players. Perfect Gift】Chess is suitable for people of any age to play and can be given as a valuable gift. A meaningful gift for Christmas, birthdays, Father's Day, and Valentine's Day.

Simpsons was opened in 1828 as Samuel Reiss’s Grand Cigar Divan, catering to smokers, and players of both chess and billiards. Then when you spot them, you look around and see more references to chess in the arch above the door. Although the chessboard above the door dates from 1904, the foliage chess pieces hanging in front are much newer. There used to be generic hanging pot plants, until 2017 – when the restaurant closed for refurbishment, and opened a few months later, with the new giant chess pieces hanging either side of the doors. High-end appearance】Forged from metal, the appearance is very luxurious, and it can even be used as a handicraft, not only for play, but also as a collection of ornaments.

Foldable】 Chess table with clear pattern on the surface, folding the board whenever you like, convenient for indoor outdoor use and? keep in place. Simpsons was bought by the owner of the Savoy Hotel in 1898, and in 1903 the restaurant closed for refurbishment caused by the slicing off its front due to road widening, reopening in 1904.

Almost all the top players of the century played there at some stage, including Wilhelm Steinitz, Paul Morphy, Emanuel Lasker, Johannes Zukertort (who had a fatal stroke while playing there), and Siegbert Tarrasch. Although many reports said that chess didn’t return, it was still played, if on a much smaller scale. In 1848, Reiss joined forces with the caterer John Simpson to expand the premises, renaming it “Simpson’s Grand Divan Tavern”, and it transformed into the restaurant that it has remained ever since.
