Describe the vibe of your store. Great for pre-gaming before a night out or if looking for a chill night playing some video games

What is the one thing your business is known for, over your competitors? This is the first gaming lounge in the Lehigh Valley.

Explain why you’re known for that. Usually, gaming lounges are only in bigger cities. I’m happy to bring the first one to Allentown, which is also growing.

How did the business get started? I always had the idea, and decided now was the time to act on it.

Why did you choose to open your business in Downtown Allentown? I was born and raised in Allentown. I wanted to bring something different for the people in the city to do.

Tell us about the biggest “win” in your business’s history? Explain what it was, how it came about, and what it meant to your business. Being able to gift a PlayStation 5 to a group of kids who didn’t have one. It means everything to be able to give back to the community I grew up in.

What is the biggest risk your business has ever taken? Explain what it was, what could have happened if it had gone wrong, and the end result of the risk. Being the first of anything can either go really well or really bad. It was a big risk opening the store because there isn’t any data on if a gaming lounge could work in the city.

What are some of your store’s goals for the future? I’m hoping to provide free gaming after school for all students in the city of Allentown. Also, I’m looking to be a different option for nights out. Whether it’s a date night, just the boys hanging out, or something different to do that people enjoy.

Tell us an interesting and fun fact about your business? We’re constantly doing gaming trivia on the Instagram page where we give out free passes for people who answer correctly.

What events do you have coming up? We do a Gamefest every month where we have 5 different tournaments in one day and give out cash prizes for each tournament.

What’s your favorite lunch food for you and your team? Always down for some good mild wings

What’s your favorite quote, and who originally said it? Everyone has two lives, and the second one begins when you realize you only have one.
