Loading vs Christmas

Celebrate with Loading the true meaning of Xmas; slaughtering the people you love the most at games.

December 09, 2020

Tis the season for epic gaming battles, long late-night sessions and marathon runs of beloved classics. As the days draw shorter and the chill deepens, video games beckon us into their nostalgic warm glow. It’s under this glow where the true meaning of Christmas is understood; slaughtering the people you love the most at Mario Kart. The thrill of making your nephew cry as you ruthlessly bankrupt them in Monopoly. The sweet relief after finally ending your Dad’s 5-year Bomber Man win streak. Nothing says Christmas more than both breaking the ice with your Inlaws and winning the game with a perfectly timed, inappropriate joke on Jackbox Party. 

This December Loading Brighton is hosting Xmas table booking showdowns, accompanied by seasonal celebrations happening all month. Reservations start at £5pp, giving you;

  • 15% discount at the bar/kitchen all night.
  • A hot festive treat on arrival!
  • Priority access to our video and board game collections as always.
  • Entry into our “Beat the Bartender Challenge”

Each day a different seasonal game takes centre stage like Clayfighter/1080 Snowboarding and competitive classics like Street Fighter/Mario Kart. If you can beat our finest virtual warriors, we’ll have presents stocked under the tree to reward the victors of our 12 Games of Christmas.

Our specials menu for December is packed full of Christmas Classics including full Turkey/Nut Roasts, as well as small plates such as Baked Camembert with Pretzels, Battered Pickles and Beet-Walnut Hummus with Parsnip Crisps. Our regular Burger menu is also still available.

Keep your eyes peeled for guest cocktails incoming for new game drops such as Worms Rumble & Cyberpunk 2077.

So for an evening of merry old drinking and gaming, join us at Loading this December and we’ll help you temporarily escape back to the battles of Christmas past.
