What they say:

A fantastic new concept that's gradually catching on, it's a meeting place where cool and geeky combine for the ultimate gaming and drinking experience. Loading Bar has recently relocated from its prior Soho residence to occupy Scenario's basement, where you'll get the opportunity to play retro arcade and board games, whilst sipping on some game-themed drinks, including "Donkey Konga!" and Resident Evil "G&T Virus" cocktails. 

What we say:

Geeky but cool usually don't mingle well, but somehow Loading Bar have achieved this difficult symbiosis and with their new setting in Scenario, their street cred has definitely soared. Original, inventive and quirky are just some of the many fitting descriptions for an establishment that's sure to do very well indeed.
