MELTDOWN

white line hexagon

In early 2011, a new phenomenon hit eSports: BarCrafts.
The concept was simple: gaming enthuasiasts meet in a bar to watch a tournament in their favorite game, have a drink or two and meet other fans.
At that time the concept was too small to attract attention and the community struggled to find locations to regularly host. However, gamers were becoming more numerous and their voices louder. That's how, in May 2012, a new place was born: Meltdown. A bar dedicated to eSports and gaming, with the goal of proving day in, day out, that videogames can be a social rather than solitary activity.
The amazing success of this bar called for fast expansion: the international community called for more Meltdown!
Thus began a great adventure...
