New esports bar opens in Aberdeen

engage gaming website screenshotEngage Gaming, a new esports venue opening in Aberdeen, is billed as “first dedicated gamers entertainment venue in Aberdeen and Scotland.”

Promising to be a venue both for gamers and run by gamers, it provides a place for Aberdeen’s gamers to meet, socialise and compete. In addition to PC, Xbox one, PS4, WII U, mobile and VR games, the venue also has a cafe and a licensed bar.

Engage Gaming is situated in the former Stage Door building on North Silver Street, which has now been transformed into a gaming facility with 180sq ft of space.

Stewart Gibson, a spokesman for Engage Gaming, said: “I knew there was a market out there for a full-time venue that could cater for the hardcore gamers and still appeal to a more mainstream market. When we found the former Stage Door restaurant I knew it was an amazing space that could easily be converted.”

Matt Sandholm, digital marketing manager at Engage Gaming, said: “We are really excited about this venture and looking forward to finally having a place where anyone with an interest in gaming can get together and play games, compete, or watch streamed tournaments.
