Work begins on Sheffield’s first e-sports bar
Sheffield’s first e-sports bar, Meltdown, is set to open within the next few months as work on the venue gets underway.
Whilst the details of Sheffield’s venue are still a secret, the usual features of a Meltdown bar are community tournaments, live viewing parties and other social events aimed at getting gamers together over a drink. There are more than 20 Metldown bars, most of which are located in France.

The plan is to open branches in the UK and in the US, as CEO Sophia Metz told Esports News UK last year: “We are opening a bar in Sheffield and would love to open more, I think the UK has great potential. It all comes down to finding the right candidates now! The UK had a slow start, but now with companies like Gfinity and others it has caught up quickly and is offering great content for the fans.”
