Online campaign hopes to bring video gaming bar to Mill Ave.

PHOENIX — Three friends have come together to attempt to open the first-ever gaming bar in the Phoenix-Metro area.

Endgame Bar is a project created by Ryan Scott, a former ASU student along with friends Nikki DelRosso and Mike Goosens.

The idea of Endgame is to fuse arcades and bars together. Unlike most bars that focus on sports or pool halls, the bar will be based entirely on console entertainment.

Endgame hopes to open at 699 S. Mill Ave., Suite 201. However, ASU is currently considering another business for this location.

An online campaign has been created through KickStarter to present ASU with the support the “barcade” idea has received. They have received about 10 percent of their $30,000 funding goal.

The last day to pledge for this project is June 16. Endgame will be making their case to ASU the day after.

If Endgame is not chosen for this location, their opening day will be delayed by up to four months.

We want to hear from you.
