The popular gaming bar Loading has called time on its Soho location.
The firm’s makeshift home on Rupert Street has been a fashionable hang out place for gamers, developers and industry types, and has held a number of events for the likes of 2K, Creative Assembly, Ubisoft, Team 17 and Nintendo. It also organised last year’s Etoo event.
But it was only a temporary home and the owners of the venue have now partnered with a new business.
Loading will close next Friday, but owner James Dance says he is on theb hunt for a permanent venue. In the mean time, he will focus on his events business, which included last night’s BAFTA Game Awards bar.
