24317 Views 205 Posts MMGN.com
Well pretty much it would be interesting to actually see some of the MMGN members at Mana Bar..If you're going to be there on any occasion or night just post in this thread. Because just from waiting in line last night I noticed Heller due to watching so much of the Gamer Rage Videos..you kinda can't forget his face :P Yes Heller is now a celebrity! Pretty much I ended up meeting Heller and Endboss..too bad we couldn't chat long enough.

I will be updating this thread once a week to keep people updated with Mana Bar's events if they don't follow their Facebook or Twitter Page. :)

Went. Was pretty cool. Would be better if I went with a whole lot of people that like videogames.

Also, reallllly small. like timy
Very cramped wasn't it? Luckily there are no game that require bigger motion swings in Wii. :P
well i went there for pres, so there werent very many people there... We should have an mmgn gathering there though.
I see. When I was there, the capacity was at it's max(49). There really wasn't much room remaining.

Woah, thats cramped!

Hopefully they dont do the same to the up-coming Sydney location.
Hopefully. The door man, the one who told me of the capacity limit, told me they were aiming for about 80, but that fell through and they got a smaller place.

I was about to say, 'shit, 80, yeah that's small'.

...... don't think I'll be going there too soon. Maybe.
You think 80 was small, the actual limit is 49. :P

It's still worth going at least once I think. Still a great time. ^_^
I dont want to hang out with overweight 40 year old unshaven, atari-loving creeps. :(
Lol, that is what I was expecting but they were mostly young people. :P
Anyone going to the 2 year party tonight?
Not me, Tuesday is a bit of a stupid night for it
Ive always wanted to go, but yeah work tomorrow so... No chance of me coming tonight lol.

Because it was their actual birthday!

And I think they wanted to reduce numbers by doing it on a Tuesday. A lot of these Northerns go out during the week regardless [Shifty]
Sooo, Mana Bar Melbourne is closing.

Nobody is going, they don't make enough money.
It was pretty quiet that one time I went. Kind of a shame, but not surprising.
Oh no, serious? I was only there last week :(
Awaiting a quote from the manager, but pretty much it it's not profitable, I suspect.

I'm not surprised. Only been there once (for their 2nd birthday party) and it was fairly full with about 40 people there. Only about half of those were drinking, and the other 20 where just using it as a meeting place to play Monster Hunter together, but not drinking at all -- so they make no money off of them.
They needed to do some sort of cover charge, as unpopular as it may be, you're right. They would only make money off maybe half the people.

I don't really drink much anymore, I was there last week, didn't drink, I think between 3 of us we bought 1 drink.

Sorry Mana Bar D:
I think it's a bit too shitty and rundown to charge to get in.

I know that's the Brunswick st charm (bad location for it), but it needs to be setup better so the games are a little more out of the way and always working -- and actually have some more. Half were out of order last time and it certainly felt like a novelty.

The idea is decent, but the implementation is poor. It's not really great as a bar or for gaming, which is why people go there a couple of times but the only regulars are the ones that don't make them any money.
When's it closing? Was hoping to check it out in September when I'm over there. :(
