Went to Reload with some friends and had a blast. We played guitar hero as well as some board games. The food was good and the drinks menu had good variety. The only issue is there is not a heap of places to sit as...More

This is what I imagine nerd paradise must be like. Great, fun place! Had so much fun with retro and recent games. Not really a place for dancing though some people did try. For those who like gaming and fun drinks.

Basically a bar with some TV screens and some consoles all sync'd up. I can do that at home yo. Basic selection of drinks. Friendly staff. This place is okay but I don't think I would chill here.
