With the atmosphere and even the drinks based on video game franchises, the Loading gaming cafe in Cornwall has long been the envy of many citizens of England that are more central of the country. Well, fret not, because a Soho branch of the bar in London is set to open its doors next month.
Currently finalising details, the new bar — located at 53, Rupert Street in Soho — will mean that London will now get to experience the ever-changing line of video game-themed cocktails available at Loaded. If you frequent gaming websites online, you’ll have almost certainly come across some of their creations at some point or another, including cocktails inspired by the recent BioShock Infinite, Resident Evil, Batman Arkham City, Saints Row, The Binding of Isaac, Skyrim, L.A. Noire, Call of Duty, Uncharted, Minecraft, XCOM, Dishonored, Borderlands, Spelunky, Journey, Mario, Kirby, The Legend of Zelda, Portal, Team Fortress 2, Sonic, Earthworm Jim and more. Yeah, it’s pretty bloody amazing.
You can also often play games in the bar, with demos of recent or upcoming games often available to play to coincide with new cocktails. It helps a great deal that the bar is in the good books of game publishers, having created drinks for game-related events on a regular occasion.
To summarise: this bar is the bar for gamers and it’ll be a must-visit for anyone in the area.
