Videogame cocktail bar‘The Mana Bar’ opening second venue in Melbourne this July!

Wednesday, 29th June 2011– Videogame cocktail bar, the Mana Bar, will open its second venue in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday, 16th of July 2011!

The Mana Bar is the first of its type in the world, combining quality cocktails with current generation console video games. A venue that is accessible to the general public, while still being credible to the hard-core gamers, it transcends the usual geek stereotype and allows people to socialise in a new and unique way. The first venue in Brisbane opened up in March 2010, with the success leading to a planned expansion nationally and internationally.

The Mana Bar Melbourne is located in the suburb of Fitzroy, a popular inner city entertainment district. It will feature 7 LCD TV’s in multiple rooms running the latest games on the PlayStation?3 (PS3™), Xbox 360™, and Nintendo Wii™ systems. Open 7 days a week, the bar will host events every night and features a unique cocktail menu, gaming themed display cabinets, and a dedicated Turtle Beach zone where patrons can experience the latest and greatest in gaming and specifically engineered for gaming headsets.

“I can’t wait for Melbourne to experience the Mana Bar” says Mana Bar creator Guy‘Yug’ Blomberg. “It’s been a long time coming, and to finally be able to open to the public is exceptionally exciting!.”

The launch weekend will feature hourly prizes, giveaways, live entertainment and special guests. It will also be the first place in Australia where the public will be able to get hands on with a special unreleased title, to be announced soon.
