A Chat with BarChess T.O.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
BarChess T.O. is a boutique organization that seeks to build a community of adults in Toronto by offering an alternative to online social life: chess. We provide a way for busy Torontonians to unwind and interact by learning a new skill through fun beginner chess classes at bars across the city.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Sanja Vukosavljevic is the only female president of Canada’s oldest and most prestigious chess club. She opened up the Hart House Chess Club to include more beginner chess players. Seeing how strangers can form a community by learning how to play chess together inspired her to create BarChess T.O.
What do you love most about your job?
Being around chess is very special. Learning chess has many benefits - it can raise IQ, improves memory, increases critical thinking and creativity. Most importantly, we love seeing chess as a powerful tool that allows people to come together and interact in person, and away from hectic Toronto life.

About A Chat with BarChess T.O.
BarChess TO was created to be an example of what we believe chess should be – fun, social, and approachable. We are an organization that offers accessible and incredibly fun beginner chess classes geared to women (although everyone is welcome to learn chess with us at BarChess TO).
