Finally a place that isn't a dark dungeon full of PC cubicles. I love that we can play casual games like Mario Kart and Smash Brothers, and also enjoy drinks and quality pizza. Great service, great atmosphere, and super open and accessible to everyone not just "g@m3rZ". 

My friends and I stopped there for what we thought would be an hour, and ended up staying much, much longer! The selection of games were great (as we were a large group, we played multiplayer games on the Switch (MarioKart, Smash, Mario Party, etc. - awesome trip down memory lane)) and the drinks were good, so we decided to have food (good pizzas) and stay playing some more. The atmosphere is very relaxed and fun, and the staff super helpful. I'd definitely recommend! 

Welcoming atmosphere. I went here with my Mum who is a bit of a tech-phobe but wanted to go for pizza before an event locally. She was really in to Mario Kart and the guys there taught her how to play it. She now wants a Nintendo Switch for Christmas haha! Great place, good range of games and looking forward to going back in the new year with my best mates.

I really enjoyed going here!! Took me back to the glory days where I could just spend some time with my friends playing games for hours! Loved the pizza and cocktails

Amazing concept. Welcoming staff and well designed. Finally a video gaming space that you can hang out with your friends and family. The F&B offering is great as well. Went crazy on the racings simulators, just couldn't leave the seat :) I wished there was a place like this when I was a student! Awesome signage outside!!!

!Great night out!

Super cool space for all gamers from casual to core, I finally got the chance to play on a proper PC and got to try many Nintendo Switch games as well!

Cocktails are great (I recommend the Crystal coconut!) and the staff is so knowledgable about the games!

I thought this place was going to be my dude hangout, turns out I'm coming back with my girlfriend for sure!

What a great night! Wanted to try something different with my boyfriend for date night and Austin from First Dates was there! He works as a host there, so that was hilarious! Other than that the space is really big and spacious with huge windows not at all what I thought a "gaming bar" would be.  The cocktails are all themed and have brilliant names - the Rainbow Road was pretty delicious. Food was great (had the mushroom pizza) and the staff - I can't say this enough so so SO friendly! Really helpful in setting us up and recommended we play some games we had never tried. Overcooked is pretty funny - really got us into the Xmas mood - we'd 100% go back! 

Platform is amazing, everything was fire, the games, the hardware, the pizzas, the drinks. I can not stress enough how good the venue is as a whole, the concept is so well executed and the staff is so friendly, the hostess was so welcoming and had a very lovely smile with crazy beautiful eyes, 100% fell in love with her. Who wouldn't? hahaha no but overall the venue is a must-try I would have a hard time believing anyone would not enjoy it. Whether you have never played video games in your life or your an experienced gamer it is so accommodating for all types of profiles. On the whole quite perfect, the only downside is that it's so good you end up staying so long it turns out to be expensive hahaha :D

Amazing to enjoy a fun and unique night out with your friends !  We've been there with my best friends for my birthday; pizzas and cocktails were delicious and the staff very friendly. They welcome both total beginners and serious gamers !! :) I warmly recommend it. We played mario kart and super smash !
