Creating a home for mahjong in the heart of Manhattan

For over 14 years, we've been teaching classes, organizing competitions, and growing the community of mahjong in the US. Through Sparrow's Nest Studio, we hope to unite experts of mahjong gameplay and strategy with a new base of players and enthusiasts.

For in-person gameplay and instruction, we're located right in the heart of Manhattan, New York. We've also put together an online store with thoughtfully chosen mahjong gifts and our own original designs for mahjong accessories.

Our Studio

We’re open four days a week, Thursday through Sunday, for open play at our studio. Our automatic tables can accommodate multiple styles of mahjong, including Japanese, Chinese, and American. If you and your friends know how to play, all you have to do is walk in - no sets or tables required!
