The project ManaBar is characterized by the usage of colored surfaces, in order to describe, superimpose and dissolve space. It is a conversion of a former retail space in a building from the 80s near the main station in Basel. Besides being a public bar, there is room for different forms of games on 3 levels: Classic board and card games, role-playing games, as well as eSport tournaments and live broadcasts or pedagogical workshops that take place in the basement. The „association for elucidation about internet and game culture“ would like to create a meeting point for all kinds of gaming enthusiasts with this new public location in Basel.
