Take a trip to the past by indulging in some classic Mario Kart, or try your luck competing in Overwatch against some of the best couch potato players in the city. There are a bunch of Nintendo, Playstation and Xbox consoles set up thorughout the entire space and there's no extra fee to play, so you can just jump right in and get your button mashing on.

Elevate your Power Up Bar experience by ordering from their extensive menu of pub grub platters. Each platter is large enough to share, so you don't need to worry about breaking your wallet on food. There are also a variety of delicious cocktails and local craft beers available to try to give you that extra boost while you play.
