Cooldown is back in action with a viewing party for the PGL Antwerp Major '22 this Sunday, 22 May @ Big Chill King's Cross
Summer 2022 is looking to be a hot esports summer if Cooldown has anything to do with it. Considering the health safety of all of our guests in light of the continuing global pandemic, Cooldown’s return to hosting in-person gatherings has been a carefully considered one, but it feels so good to say: we’re back!
And we’re back with a BANG! This Sunday, 22 May, Cooldown is hosting FRAGDOWN LONDON — a viewing party for the PGL Antwerp Major ‘22 Grand Finals at Big Chill King’s Cross. And you, London esports fans, are invited! Bring your mates, your squad, and your thirst.
Register and attend the event on Cooldown.gg to receive an ice-cold Buy One, Get One Free Camden Town Brewing HELLS beer! A special QR code will be sent to you after you register to be scanned at the bar during the day of heated battles for CS:GO supremacy. Join local orgs, clubs, and esports enthusiasts from across London in a quintessential pub environment to bear witness to the first PGL Major victory of 2022 — smack in the middle of King’s Cross!
We ask this seriously, because we want to know: what more could you want? If it’s more events like this: we've got you.
"We are super excited to be working with Cooldown to bring esports back to London after the pandemic,” said Megan Munford, marketing manager of Big Chill. “We at Big Chill King’s Cross can’t wait to be a part of the community as a place for fans to come together and watch all of their favourite events."
“With the pandemic, our in-person esports viewing parties became almost impossible to arrange. So we took some time out to reflect on how we can raise the level even higher when we go live again,” commented Kishan Bhatt, Co-Lead of Cooldown. “And, we can’t wait to show you what we came up with. Cooldown is coming back to London bars this spring, bringing esports fans (back) together in our incredible partner bars to watch and share esports’ greatest moments as they unfold together.”
We’ve been busy pairing the city’s esports communities to their new ‘home bars’ — if you aren’t already familiar, get to know your new favourite esports bars, such as: Platform in Shoreditch, Big Chill King’s Cross, The Speakeasy in Dalston, and The Monarchy in Camden. And, we’ll have even more amazing venue partners to announce soon!
We’ll be announcing even more Cooldown-hosted events as well, but if you and your crew are keen on hosting your own viewing parties for your community, get in touch. If your company is looking to get involved with esports, get in touch. If your bar wants to get in on the action, we can help with that too — get in touch.
When we say we’re back: WE’RE BACK. See you and your mates Sunday at King’s Cross, gamers. LFG!
