i'm from Germany. We really prefer gaming clubs, but I for my self have no issues about going into a store. Clubs are in my opinion the way to go, you'll have a fix room where you can leave the tables like they are. At home i have to getting the Table out of his corner, onto the table, scenery out of the corner, onto the Table and all backwards when the game is over. Kinda annoying. 😊
You also can store all your Terrain, scenery, army's at your clubhouse if it is a room or hut you can savely lock. Also you'll don't have to carry anything over there because you can store every single piece for your games there. Getting a Fridge inside your clubhouse, you also have cold drinks in there. 😊 The thing is you can design it how ever you want.
Buuuuuut, it'll cost some money to rent a room. If you have enough guy's coming and are willingly to split the rent it's just a small amount everyone have to pay. Or getting your hand @ a free place where you can go to. It worked awesome in my last gaming club. The only problem was nobody wanted to play WHFB or rarely. Not to speak of AoS. So i had to leave cause I didn't wanted to pay for a club in wich I rarely had some games.
