A new eSports Lounge with up to 40 PCs and a library of nearly 100 of the most popular video games is set to open inside the GameWorks location at Newport on the Levee, San Francisco-based GameWorks Inc. announced Monday.
The new dedicated gaming lounge is slated to open on March 20. The lounges typically accommodate up to 100 guests, and feature multiple personal play stations and oversized couches to accommodate gamers and spectators.
Visitors can order food and drinks and have their meals delivered directly to their seats.
The gaming lounge will be the first in the Greater Cincinnati area, and is among four new lounges being added to GameWorks locations in Minneapolis, Chicago, Virginia Beach, Va., as well as the local area.
“With a 20-year track record and solid reputation in the gaming and entertainment space, we’re leveraging our leadership position in competitive play, arcade games, food and entertainment,” GameWorks’ officials said in a press release.
