New Unity

Featuring ten screens, you'll be hard-pushed to find a game that's not being shown at London Road bar New Unity. Should there be something not advertised on their line-up though, fear not, get in touch with the team and they'll be more than happy to provide you with your own space and private screen - it's like your living room, but better.
