Game Changer: Level Tap coming soon

We’re pleased to announce that something completely different is coming to Liverpool ONE: competitive-socialising Esports concept, Level Tap, is to launch a new on Hanover Street, marking a city debut for a standalone Esports site. Providing an interactive, experience-led venue for gaming and Esports spectating, Level Tap’s debut site will host and broadcast live events from around the world.

Due to open early May, Level Tap Liverpool ONE will be the brand’s debut site, as well as the city’s first competitive gaming venue. Level Tap’s games library will cater for a wide range of gamers and host a variety of competitive titles from all genres, from FPS, Sports and Racing to RPG’s, Strategy and Party. The debut venue will feature eight console stations, all containing a Nintendo Switch and either a PS5 or an Xbox Series X, along with two racing simulators and 22 PCs.

Spanning two floors, Level Tap’s mezzanine floor will be a base for streamers and competing teams broadcasting their gameplay onto projectors and TVs around the venue, whilst the lower level will house a lounge area, with bar and dining tables, as well as an ‘arena’ seating over 100. The new Level Tap Liverpool ONE venue will also serve a range of specially created gaming-themed cocktails, shakes, seltzers and draught and bottled beer, wine and soft drinks, as well as pizza slices, sides, snacks and sundaes.

“Liverpool is increasingly becoming an huge gaming centre, with a renowned status for games development. Combine this with Liverpool ONE’s reputation as the city’s central hub, home to a community of innovative F&B, retail and competitive socialising outlets, the new Hanover Street unit seemed the obvious choice in which to open our debut venue. Here, we’re looking to create a home for those passionate about Esports and gaming, enabling them to play, watch and socialise together.”
