Part bar, part restaurant, part video game arena, ESC is a one-of-a-kind venue. Hidden under a Chatswood arcade the gaming restaurant eschews the stereotypical gaming aesthetics – neon lighting, dim lighting and lots of black – with a modern Japanese, timber fit-out and an Australian Japanese bar and restaurant menu. There are options to book booths or private gaming rooms, whichever you pick comes with a PlayStation5 or Nintendo Switch and over 50 games to choose from. If you get a private room, you even get your own arcade. Between games, order sushi, karaage-style fried chicken and rice bowls paired with themed cocktails and Japanese booze.
