Going Down Under anytime soon? If you find yourself in Australia with a parched tongue this February, keep your eyes open for the country’s first dedicated video game bar, Mana Bar.

At Mana Bar you can put your feet up, grab a controller with one hand, and a martini with the other. Save your arcade quarter stash for more cocktails, because the joint offers all the gaming you can handle free of charge. Trivia, tournaments, launch events, and other gaming-related things will keep gaming lushes occupied while ordering another round.

Up to 50 patrons can occupy the establishment before the Mana Bar is maxed out. No word has been released regarding whether Mana Bar’s maximum capacity will increase when it levels up.

You can thank Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw of Zero Punctuation and three other Aussies for the bar’s creation. Any Australian gamers out there excited at the prospect of tap beer and video games?
