Socialise while gaming
Walking down Franklin Street in the Adelaide CBD is a tiny, easy-to-miss building right next to the Eynesbury building. It's sneakily tucked away, and has PiMP.TV as the name on the building.

Behold, a gaming bar and lounge that offers some of the best gaming deals and delicious meals to go with it.

PiMP PAD is a great place for gamers (novice and experts alike) to gather together and enjoy playing some of the most popular and well-known video games at extremely affordable prices - $3 for an hour of gaming.

The Pad Gamer's Bar and Lounge

There are two levels, the lower one containing a row of computers, while the upper level has four rows of computers, all complete with comfortable chairs and headphones, so you don't need to worry about straining that back while playing some of the best games that PiMP PAD has to offer.

The range of games is highly varied and include (but are not limited to):
Left 4 Dead
Age of Empires
Call of Duty

Level 2 Gaming Area

In addition to that, they also provide consoles for hire on the ground level, which are available at really cheap prices. Some of these games include Mario and Aladdin, to name a few.

They often have tournaments, which are publicised on their Facebook page, so "like" them on Facebook to keep yourself updated with the latest happenings around The Pad.

The Pad also offers an appetising menu of food and drink items, which you can easily order from one of the friendly staff members. Food items include hot dogs, toasties, burgers and pizzas. Drinks include the common soft drinks like Mountain Dew, Coke and energy drinks like Monster and Red Bull.

They have also recently acquired a liquor license, which means alcohol is now available for purchase. All you need to do is pay $10 for their standard membership, which will not only give you the right to consume their alcoholic beverages, but will also give you 3 hours of gaming time (included with the deal).
