Esports Bar

Bad Machines is not just a bar, it's an experience. We are one of the first esports bars in North Carolina where you can come watch a large number of esporting events while enjoying a tasty local craft brew. We also throw regular exhibition matches across various Esports titles between local amateur, semi-pro, and professional players before a live audience that's recorded and streamed live to the world!

Interested in playing live? We are actively searching for new talent to play live against local and pro players from across the globe in various hot Esports titles such as Smash, Rocket League, and the various top Fighting Game titles such as Street Fighter, Marvel, and Strive.
