Located in the heart of downtown Guelph, Afterlife is a video game lounge where you can come to enjoy hearty food, specialty cocktails, and a wide range of video games from classic to next generation. More than just a bar, Afterlife is an entertainment venue where you can relax and play classic games like Mario or The Legend of Zelda, or you can face off against your friends in a modern first person shooter like Call of Duty. We also stream several major video game events like the League of Legends World Championship, so you can watch the games with your friends while you sit down and enjoy our selection of food and drinks. For more information, check out our short video:


Before you book your reservation, you’ll need some idea of what types of games you want to play – modern or retro?

In our modern section, we offer cafe seating and recent consoles at a rate of $5 per person, for a guaranteed 2 hours of play.

In our retro section, we offer lounge seating and vintage consoles at a rate of $20 per person, for a guaranteed 2 hours of play.

In either case, you can lower the price of the space by ordering food and drink. We subtract the price of everything that you order from the price of the space. That means, if you and a group of friends want to play in our retro section, and you each order $20 worth of food and drink, you don’t pay anything to use the space!

Step 1: Select date and time


The lounge is separated into 2 sections, each with different types of consoles and extensive game libraries.

In the front, we have cafe seating with modern consoles available (XBOX 360, XBOX ONE, Wii U).

Further into the lounge, we offer living room style couch seating with retro consoles available for use (NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, Nintendo Gamecube, Sega Genesis, Playstation 1, Playstation 2).

Our collection is still growing, and we’ll be adding new consoles as fast as we can! We do accept donations and trade-ins, so please let us know if you’d like to find a home for your old consoles that you’re not playing.
