The Mana Bar - dedicated to console gaming - opens Sat Mar 20 2010 @themanabar

The Mana Bar, a bar in Fortitude Valley dedicated to console gaming, opens this Saturday, March 20 2010, from midday to midnight.

Entry is free, and it's also free to play the games - all you have to pay for is your drinks. The games will be played on LCD monitors on the walls, while the consoles and games will be kept behind the bar. The Mana Bar's Facebook page is here, and their Twitter account is here.

One of the people behind the Mana Bar is Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw, host of the Zero Punctuation video game review - click here for his Twitter account. This video shows his review last year of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2:

Croshaw will be hosting regular gaming trivia nights at the Mana Bar.

The three other people behind the bar are Guy "Yug" Blomberg, co-creator of, Prasant Moorthy and Shay Leighton.

The Mana Bar is at 420 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley, in the same building as the Judith Wright Centre for Contemporary Arts. The Mana Bar's door faces the street, you don't have to go into the Judith Wright Centre to get to the bar. The best way to get there by public transport is to catch a 196 or 199 bus to stop 5 on Brunswick St, or catch a train to the Fortitude Valley station and walk up Brunswick St - click here for a Google Map.
