Reload Bar & Games is a new type of venue for Canberra and indeed the world.

When you step into Reload, you step into a different world. A world where gaming culture has truly gone mainstream. Reload is a place where you can play some games or watch the biggest esports matches while sipping on a cocktail with a name like Bloodlust, Chun-Li Iced Tea, or Los Santos Sunrise. A place where geek meets chic. A place where you can party with people just like you, in a stylish and attractive nightclub setting.

Welcome to a new type of venue.

Welcome to a space created by gamers for gamers.



Check out our list of game-themed cocktails, jugs and short drinks. These drinks don’t just have novel names, they are delicious and unique creations that are designed to hit your X, A, B & Y buttons. We are very proud of our drinks and are sure you will find them to your taste.

We also have Sapporo beer and Somersby cider on tap, and all the basic and top-shelf spirits you would expect.

If you are a designated driver or are just having a quiet one, we’ve got you covered with a range of fruit juices, soft drinks and mocktails.

We don’t only play games – we love to watch them too. From local tournaments run through The Barracks LAN Café to the biggest competitions in the world, Reload is dedicated to providing a venue where you and your friends can watch your favourite teams compete in style. Come along and catch some League, Dota, StarCraft or CS on our massive projector and 60” TV screens while soaking up the bar atmosphere.
To see what esports events are coming up on the big screen, please refer to the events calendar below or our Facebook page.

We are eager to grow the local competitive scene and are interested in talking to local teams, event organizers and community figures about achieving this goal. Whether you are seeking sponsorship, have an event you would like to run, or just want to get involved and help out, we would love to hear from you.

Team Building

Reload Bar & Games is a unique and fun venue to bring your staff for a team building session.

Video gaming can be a great way to help a work group evolve into a cohesive unit. By engaging in co-operative challenges (or a little healthy competition between teams) your staff can build trust and support and increase respect one another’s individual differences.

At Reload we can design a program specific to your needs and guide your team members though the controls for each game. It doesn’t matter if they have never played before; that’s all part of the challenge and our games have been chosen to be easily accessible to people who might not usually play video games.

Perhaps you are after something a little less structured and just want to reward your team for their hard work. A private staff function at Reload is a great social outing that will get everyone talking and playing together in an inclusive environment.

We have a fully stocked bar and a PA system with wireless microphones that you can use for announcements, awards ceremonies, etc. Tables and seating are plentiful and can be arranged to your liking.

We can work around your schedule to find a time suitable for your event. Friday afternoons from 2pm are ideal and available for private hire at a very reasonable cost.
