This Adult Video Game Bar In Toronto Lets You Drink And Ruin Friendships Over Mario Kart
For the kids at heart.
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.
