Meltdown is officially the first and only 'eSports' bar in London, the ultimate bar for gamers. This London bar is a retreat for gaming fanatics with strictly game themed drinks and with all the latest and most popular games, there's something for everyone. For the hardcore players there's Starcraft and League of Legends on two battle style desks. If you're into something a bit more casual there's a few Xbox 360's equipped with fighting games like Injustice and Street Fighter. There's even arcade controllers for the more old-school game fans.

The game inspired cocktail list is just about as exciting as the games. If you're playing Street Fighter why not try the Blanka, made up of Cachaça, lime juice, kiwi and Angostura. The most unique drink is by far the Force Field. This is made up of a red martini filled shot glass that is inverted into a tumbler filled with Blue Curacao vodka and rum and then set on fire. A weekly schedule of tournaments is also put up creating some friendly competition. Amazing drinks and games guarantee to attract the best gamers in London.
