New Houston Video Game Bar Seeks Funding Via Kickstarter

Houston gamers rejoice, there’s a Kickstarter project going to fund Press Start Bar, a bar with special consideration for fans of console gaming.

We covered this story over on The Game Fanatics, three adventurous gamers: Ryan Thauburn, Cynthia Thauburn, and Hannah Weir, are determined to open a bar in our expansive city catered towards console gaming.

A Houston video game bar will certainly be a welcome addition to a city with a relatively new Comic Con, and a rather fragmented gaming scene…which is due in part to the fact that the city is so large.

If the idea of a video game bar in Houston hits home to you, then you should head over to the Press Start Bar Kickstarter page, give it a once over (there’s even a pretty detailed business plan), and support as you feel led to.

The bar space is definitely one that’s a challenge to enter, and one with such a targeted niche as video games, some may say it’s doomed from the start. What do you think about Houston getting a video game bar?

    Video games may have been niche at one time, but they’re not anymore. There’s definitely an audience, especially in Houston, for this. It needs to happen ’cause I’m tired of staring at sports in bars.

      I agree with you, Adam. It’s about time. We just need people to unite to make this happen.

    Great concept! I’ll be there they day it opens. The concept of playing video games on the big screen alone is brilliant. And you’re telling me I can get drinks delivered to me while playing!!! SHUT UP and take my money.
