At The Nerd Dungeon, our goal is to provide a community safe space local to Asheville NC, where everyone is welcome, customers know they are seen and valued, and people of all ages can gather.
We are the Owners and operators of the Nerd Dungeon and Elder Dragon Coffee Shop.
We have been a part of the LGBTQ+ and Nerd community all our lives and are proud to call Western North Carolina our home.
Our shop began as a way to give old and vintage toys, games, collectibles and memorabilia new homes and bring the good parts of childhood and nostalgia back to life.
Our partnership as co-owners is founded on friendship, communication, and shared dreams.
Our business focus is not only to bring joy and great deals to others,
but also to be sustainable, locally minded and assist in making others’ dreams come true.
