iPong, Macgregor

Did someone say beer? You’ll love this digital beer pong experience that uses simulations to create digital cups for you to throw your ball into. With a funky, futuristic vibe, the hub is also home to the good old pub game of darts, which is more high-speed and high-stakes than your average dart game. There’s also a food and drinks menu to choose from.
