    Idea for a Bar

    Post by Noob-of-Artorias on Mon Jun 18, 2012 7:25 am

    I've decided I'm going to live the American Dream...and by that I mean I'm going to open a bar.

    This will be no ordinary bar mind you, it'll be a bar where instead of
    showing the latest sports game on TV it'll have multiple televisions
    with the latest Videogames on them. From Call of Duty to Dark Souls
    it'll be non stop gaming, because nothing fuels the consumption of
    alcohol and various junk foods than competition and video games.

    As for the bar itself? It'll serve up a tasty batch of game inspired concoctions.

    From Mario we'll serve the 1-Up a **** combining Midori and Lime Juice, served in a mushroom shaped glass.

    From Zelda we'll have the Red Potion, a tasty mix of Vodka and cranberry juice, served in a Erlenmeyer flask.

    From Dark Souls we'll have the Estus Flask, a combination of Vodka,
    pumpkin liquor and Amaretto, served in a rough green flask.

    and finally we'll have a different shot for all 151 original Pokemon.

    This Bar will be the meeting spot for every gamer in San Diego county and what will this bar's name be?

    The Life Bar....what else?

    There are already gamer themed bars in America, even in Aus. If you do want to take a look into them and see what they do.

    I've heard of a few, I know there's on in Australia run by Ben Yahtzee Crowshaw, I think it's a great business model.

    I've never seen one...🇳🇴

    Then again i dont do much bar hopping these days.

    Sounds like a great idea though....i doubt many women would attend. They probably would at first...till they met the regulars. lol

    +1 for the first line in op.

    I would be afraid that costs would skyrocket from thrown controllers. Can you imagine drunken fools trying to play Dark Souls? Also, you'd have to have community characters so everyone would have to play a character they didn't customize and might be stuck with something they don't like.

    Funny that you make the Estus Flask a drink that sounds like it would be sweet. In my mind it's bitter. Anyhow, you could steal some ideas from Barcade. That place is pretty fun!

    Is this for real? How much start-up capital do you have? You're 20, are you even allowed to open up a bar?

    The idea itself is awesome though. If it ever gets out to Florida, I'll be sure to check it out.

    I imagine estus to be warm vaguely with no discernible flavor. So top shelf vodka or corn mash

    This sounds awesome and don't forget racing and fighting games. Btw, you should have some heart shaped bar snacks.

    This idea is unlikely to happen at the moment, I am however compiling a list of drinks for the bar in a notebook, I'm adding the portal shots, those are super cool.

    As for start-up capital, through penny pinching and a few investments, I have a modest nestegg to work with, probably enough to pay for the barstools :roll:
    .
    All dreams start small though right? And if it ever comes to fruition, first rounds are on me.

    If it ever comes to fruition, I'll buy a bottle of your most expensive champagne and douse everyone in the bar in bubbly celebration.

    There should be a phantom special for the Estus drink. Order one estus get one for a friend for free. The special also would include a follow up drink for a third party, who is not friends to the first two. It would be made by combining pickle juice, cranberry juice, hot sauce and cheap vodka. It would be called the Backstab.

    Outstanding!

    I'm sort of in love with the idea of a Dark Souls themed bar now. Why isn't it a thing?

    Dark Souls themed bar would be a horror to advertise for though.

    "prepare to die, from alcohol poisoning"
    "Dark spirit tequila invaded"
    "You Recovered another beer"

    Just needs some positive thinking.
    "Prepare to die....and feel like you're in heaven"
    "Spirit of vengeance chicken wings have invaded"
    "You recovered...your beer goggles"

    If you go general video games, you need to have a konami code drink. Skarekrow, your the one who can drink legally here, any idea how to do and up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-b-a drink?
