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. They even have Vedett on tap! ????

Game Over Lounge has expanded in the last year, becoming a full service restaurant on top of all their games with a brilliant head chef. The menu includes a mix of Western and Thai food. Also worth mentioning is their variety of sharing plates – because what goes hand in hand with video games? Snack food, of course!
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.
