Video Gaming Lounges In And Around The North East

Gaming lounges have undergone a massive change in the last couple of years. Previously referred to as ‘gaming cafes’ or ‘cyber dens’ the popularity of gaming lounges has grown dramatically in-line with the latest gaming trends and the global esports industry.

Offering a wide range of the latest consoles, gaming lounges are open to all who have a passion for gaming.
