Video gaming is often thought of as a solitary activity that doesn't involve much socializing. However, more businesses are trying to find a way to bring people together through their love of gaming, which is why you see so many gaming bars in Atlanta popping up around the city.
If you're a hardcore gamer, or even a passive one, you're going to want to check out the new kid on the block, Axis Replay. This gaming center has been open since January, and it's slowly gaining recognition as one of the best gaming spots around town. It caters to professional E-sports players and casual gamers alike, so there's something for everyone.
While the center has already seen plenty of success, it's aiming to attract even more attention by opening a bar by the end of this year. Though there's not a specific date yet, the bar is expected to open in two weeks. Narcity will follow up with details.
Axis Replay is partnering with the popular beer brand New Belgium, so you'll be able to grab some of your favorite beers. However, the cocktails may just be the most exciting options on the menu.
They'll have a variety of video game-inspired drinks, such as the Mario Bros.-themed "Piranha Plant" as well as the Fortnite-inspired "Slurp Juice." Whether you're into gaming or not, these drinks are so pretty you'll be dying to take a sip.
If you want to get your game on, you can't pass up the Dance Dance Revolution machines; it's going to feel like a blast from the past. Plus, these machines are actually free to use. You can always grab a drink before you start playing if you're not super confident in your skills.
Those who are on the lookout for something to do on New Year's Eve should check out the NYE party happening at Axis Replay on December 31.
It will feature food, drinks, gaming and even a silent disco. It's running from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m., and only costs $25 to get in the door and party the night away.
Whether you're really into gaming or just want to sip on a cute, clever cocktail, Axis Replay is definitely a must-see spot.
