Game Night Showdown

IIL Admin

Looking to stay in with just you, and your significant... video game console? Well, if you're looking to get your game on, and fit some social time in, enter: the magical place where you can play games and sip your beverage of choice among fellow gamers. This adult playground is a goldmine of endless fun with two bars, and more tvs than your local Best Buy. Located in SOMA, the Foundary is a bar that transforms into a gaming temple on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Showdown hosts the game night event, offering a wide array of classic games like Nintendo 64, and has Street Fighter tournaments projected onto the wall. You can find every video game and console under-the-sun, PC computers and games, and Rock Band at The Foundary. Need a quick break from the virtual world? For those rare moments. there is a card game area where you're welcome to sit down with a beer and new friends.

Our team spoke to several participants, including Showdown member Jessee. Jessee has been apart of the marketing team at Showdown for about 5 months. He has a strong passion for gaming and takes pleasure in providing San Francisco a quality gaming outlet.

We asked Jesse which brand best represents him, and his response did not disappoint! We'll see you soon Jesse, thanks for an awesome time!

IGN Entertainment because, like IGN, we [SHOWDOWN] are all about celebrating everything gaming. Our SHOWDOWN team embraces the culture of gaming and we enjoy seeing others do the same.
