A teenager is planning to set up a gaming bar in Fenland with his friends.
Reece Welling, 19, of Doddington, wants to open a venue where games fanatics can share their passion with like minded people and play all the latest games.
The former Cromwell Community College student, who works at QV Foods, is looking for a premises in March to bring his exciting idea to life.
He said: “We all love to play games. Whether it is Candy Crush, Call of Duty, Fifa, Magic the Gathering, League of Legends, Mega Bomberman or Space Invaders, we all have our niche.
“Gaming Bar will be a modern atmosphere for all generations. It’s the perfect place for those wanting to be part of the latest, best and all the classics of what technology has to offer for us gamers.
“It will have a spectacular design and is a mixture of old wood, rustic styled lamps and unique gaming areas, all topped off with modern tweaks such as bright coloured bean bags, French designer chairs and bespoke gaming tables.
“There will be unique snacks from round the globe to nibble on whilst taking a swig from our range of drinks.”
Since there are only two other gaming bars in the country, Reece says this is a great opportunity to create something which will appeal to children and adults alike.
He already has a clear idea in place of how the business, which he hopes will be up and running in three to six months will run.
He said: “This is the first time I’ve set up a business and I’m really excited by it.
“We sat down with a small community of gamers and concluded monthly memberships were you aren’t obliged to sign a contract are the best way to go.
“They allow the gamer to choose eight slots a week (eight hours) for gaming and then competitions where you can win more hours or even new technology for simply entering.”
