Some of the most cherished childhood memories millennials hold dear in their hearts involve the iconic game of Mario Kart. It was a source of endless fun, friendly competition, and occassionally, a few ruined friendships. The game may be geared more towards kids, but who says adults can't get in on the fun too?
Power Up Bar is a unique place in Toronto that serves as both a bar and gaming hub. Guests can indulge in a variety of seasonal cocktails, local craft beers and pub grub while enjoying a catalogue of console games in a modern, social setting. Though it caters to those who are interested in sci-fi and fantasy, everyone is welcome to get in on the fun!
The bar is equipped with large screens that are hooked up to Nintendo Wii consoles, WiiU consoles, Playstation 3 and 4 consoles, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles. There are also a slew of older-generation consoles for those who are feeling nostalgic.
Couch co-op and competitive titles are often held at the bar, so you and your friends can try your luck against another group of gamers. You don't have to be a hardcore gamer to feel comfortable at the bar, as it welcomes people of all skill levels. Besides, as long as you enjoy great food and drinks, you're bound to have a great time.
If you are a competitive gamer, you'll enjoy the live streaming and e-sports events that are frequently held at the bar.
There's no extra fee to play at an available console; however, guests are asked to be mindful and respectful of one another. Those looking for a more private affair can always inquire about renting out the space for an event.
