Expansive gaming sites are all the rage in Sydney at the moment. There’s Fortress with its esports games arena, PC gaming zone, arcades, sci-fi-themed bar and more and this insane challenge room hotel. Adding to the growing list is a new gaming restaurant on the north shore and it’s all about games, food and fun times. Dubbed ESC, the adult playground is bringing Japanese bites and a variety of video and arcade games to Chatswood.
ESC Gaming Restaurant
Get in the competitive spirit in this vibrant space decked out with murals, themed rooms and semi-private booths. With promises to be the ultimate paradise for gamers, ESC is home to beloved gaming and anime characters like Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart along with PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch games for those eager for some friendly, competitive fun. If you’re just wanting to unplug, ESC has the goods with Netflix, Binge, and Disney+ available to watch on a huge screen. Between the food and games, you could easily spend a whole day here. And did we mention the controllers are delivered by a sushi train?
The vibey space invites gamers to ‘eat, play and chill’ with options to book private rooms, seated booths or themed rooms with a two-hour time slot. The food is just as creative with menu offerings including sashimi platters, wagyu skewers, udon and soups along with a number of sides, snacks and starters.
