Meltdown Cologne is available for any type of event - from product presentation or meetups to schooling sessions. The bar atmosphere, arranged in industrial style interiour design, loosens up your event and offers a change to sterile convention halls or lackluster seminar rooms.


WhoWe Are

“Meltdown” is Cologne’s first gaming and esports bar. Several PCs and consoles are available for playing and a well-equipped bar offers a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Eight (of our twelve) large-screen TVs can be controlled individually to send video footage to every corner of the venue

Entering the location you see one of our two retro corners. You can play comfortably in stylish chesterfield couches and recall the good old times on the Super Nintendo. Two large screens also enable you to play Wii U or follow the latest esports tournaments. A few steps further you´ll enter the main part of our bar (∼60m²) with our second retro corner, the bar and an elevated seating area. Besides our delicious cocktails you can enjoy the local beer "Kölsch" or several other from the bottle. The third segment (∼60m²) offers six high-end Pcs, an Xbox One and a Playstation 4. Of course you´ll find several large screens with different streams.

If you have other or more questions feel free to contact us any time.

There are numerous options. You can book the Meltdown just for a few hours, a whole evening (6pm - closing time) or for a full day. You can also decide if you want the bar to stay open to the public during your event (e.g. to present your new game) or book it exclusively just for a selected number of “special guests”.

This completely depends on what you want. A few hours or the full day? Is your event on a Monday or on a Saturday? Do you want the venue open to the public or prefer a closed event only for invited guests? We’ll make you an individual offer.

We don’t serve food ourselves but have worked with several local restaurants in the past to offer catering in the bar. Burger, Pizza & co can be delivered steaming hot to your table.

Theoretically it might but to this point we were able to realise every request because our sponsors are pretty laid-back. Although that’s not guaranteed at all times, we’re confident that we can always find a solution that satisfies all parties.

We have many many games and lots of tech - and if we don’t have what you want, we know where to get it! Need more than two wireless microphones? We already know who to call. A VR device? We’re on it!
