Game Over Lounge Bangkok: Level Up Your Night Out for Drinks
Everyone Loves Video Games: Game Over Lounge Bangkok
What’s not to love about beer, burgers and video games? Literally nothing. This could well be the king of places to hangout. Classifying themselves as an electric playground, Game Over Lounge Bangkok is well worth your time to explore and enjoy.
What now seems like a regular phenomenon is the crossover between video games, board games and the like, with the ever-popular activity of drinking in bars. We, for one, are all for it! Even if you’re not a gamer this place has a great selection of craft beers, freshly brewed coffee and fantastic burgers.
How to Join in the Fun
Well, it isn’t necessarily cheap. If you’re after a console or PC gaming pass then it’ll cost you 500 baht a day. If you’re planning on staying for longer in Bangkok and fall in love with this place, then you can sign up for a monthly pass. They start at a far more affordable 1200 baht a month. On top of that you’ll need to pay 350 baht an hour to use the consoles on their massive TV. Thankfully, you can book your time slot in advance.
If video games aren’t your thing then there are also board games too, some of which are free, others of which come with a small 150 baht charge.
The inside is as you might expect from a gaming haunt. It’s a blend of modern chic and gaming memorabilia. There are also loads of hipster antiques and items. Perfect for an Instagram frenzy.
If you’ve been in Bangkok for long, and you like a burger, you might have heard the name Daniel Thaiger. He’s the man behind one of Bangkok’s most famous burger trucks on Sukhumvit 38. Now his burgers have been brought to the restaurant scene. You can choose from a variety of base burgers and enjoy creating your own too. They’ll cost you around 200 baht. The drinks menu is excellent too, with craft beer, wines, spirits, coffee and tea to name a few.
As far as games go, the list is pretty massive. You have your regular drinking games like giant Jenga and beer pong as well as a decent board game selection. Past this? There’s a few PS4 setups with a wide range of multiplayer games. The crown of Game Over Lounge Bangkok is their PC scrimmaging rooms though. While there are many internet cafes in the city, these rooms have top end gaming PCs and are catered towards esports titles.
Getting to Game Over Lounge Bangkok
Game Over Bangkok is on the ground floor of Liberty Plaza, near the top of Thonglor. Head for Sukhumvit Soi 55. You can visit any time from 11am straight through to 2am, so if you’re looking for a serious gaming session then you can be in there for 15 hours for 500 baht. That actually makes it seem more affordable…
If you’re already staying near Sukhumvit then you might want to consider walking or taking a motorbike taxi. These will likely be your quickest forms of transport during Bangkok rush hour traffic. Once the streets begin to clog up you could be sat in traffic for hours. For reference, Bodega Bangkok is right around the corner from Soi Cowboy on Sukhumvit Soi 23.
