If I say "StarCraft II", what comes to your mind? Probably not much if you are no fan of video games. However, if you are, I know your eyes just light up and your face bightened up.
Of course! A famous Real-time strategy (RTS) video game, developed by Blizzard Entertainment, "StarCraft II" has become over time a benchmark in the field to the point where a new bar concept, knowned as BarCrafts, has come to life, around these games.
Finally, Paris has its own, with the opening last spring of the Meltdown, "the first e-sports bar in Europe" according to some. What happens inside? Screens show StarCraft II-related events, live coaching or games between famous gamers or just regular customers.
As a result, the Meltdown's Facebook page regularly announces special League of Legends or Starcraft 2 tournaments.
But the eSports bar also allows one to go for a drink, with beer or cocktails with fairly evocative names, such as the "Hellion Blue Flame" (Hellion flamme bleue), the "Spawning pool", the "ForceField" the "Thor" or the "MadmoiZerg".
To taste them, you know what you have to do: rush to the Meltdown and enter a whole new world!
32, rue Albert Thomas, 75010 Paris
