Australia Casinos » Casino News » GG EZ First eSports Bar to Open in Melbourne, Australia

We all know that Sports bars in Melbourne are not hard to come by. However, an eSports bar is said to be something very different and could possibly be a gamechanger.


What are eSports and how do they work? Well, eSports are electronically simulated sports particularly simulated by video gaming systems. What happens is, during an eSporting event, professional video gamers are squared up against each other. People at the eSports bar then place bets on the team they feel will win, just like in real sports betting situations.

Lachlan McAllister, the owner of the GG EZ bar on Queen street, says that the bar is set to stay open late and hold a fun and light atmosphere. He further goes on to say that this is like a sports bar, although, you would be watching eSports on TV and enjoying drinks with good company.

McAllister clarifies that this is not a gaming bar, people cannot play games here. However, they can sit and watch eSports. He states that eSports are a great form of entertainment and that it’s well overdue that it gets its own venue.

Catering to the needs of all their patrons, the menu is yet to be finalised, they intend on providing an array of alcoholic bubble teas to suit to the quirky and unique atmosphere that this bar brings.

  • League of Legends
