You know that buddy of yours that always says he wants to open a gaming lounge, but never gets around to it? Well, he might have some competition.
I don’t get tips on new venues very often, so when I found out that a brand-new eSports arena is opening in Decatur this weekend, I was intrigued.
Equipped with gaming chairs, couches, tables, and several types of gaming stations, VS Realm eSports Arena is a new space where gamers can come in, hang out, and play games together.
This lounge-style space provides several stations for folks to play both modern and retro console games, as well as LAN-supported PCs. While it’s mostly a video gaming venue, they have also provided tables and seating for tabletop lovers to throw down cards or roll some dice.
Recently I reached out to the owners, and while I haven’t had the chance to speak to them in person yet, they seem hopeful and excited for the grand opening. Being a big Twitch fan, I wonder if at some point they will be able to support livestreaming as well. Considering the platform’s popularity, I think it would make sense for them to try to build a following there, or invite streamers to come in and stream from the space.
Regardless, an eSports arena lounge sounds pretty awesome, and I think it will quickly become a pretty awesome new place for local gamers to hang out. And since it’s in the North DeKalb Mall, there are several food options both inside and outside the mall to keep you fueled up throughout the day.
VS Realm eSports Arena opens for the first time this Saturday, November 25, 2017, at the North DeKalb Mall in Decatur. If you’re interested in learning more about this venue, you can follow them on Facebook.
