Over ons - Barvatar


Based on the example of similar success stories abroad, Barvatar opened their doors in the autumn of 2021 at Shopping Gent Zuid as a hotspot for gamers lifestyle and esports.
Barvatar offers a unique experience in which hospitality, social interaction and technology go hand in hand.

An initiative of three local ambitious businessmen, with extensive experience in live events, hospitality and esports!
Together with an enthusiastic team, they provide a unique leisure experience, refreshing offers for gamers, and professional support for emerging talents.



Barvatar aims to offer an unprecedented experience in which video games bring people together to have a great time.
We welcome anyone who’s open for a ‘moment of joy’ in a relaxed, accessible and inviting environment.
Barvatar combines the pleasure of food, drinks and games with an unprecedented range of fun, events, competitions and training.

It is also the go-to place for every self-respecting gamer and esports fan. Developing talent and offering opportunities to play is central in our ambition to give esports a place in Belgian society.

Eat & Drink - Come & Play


Let’s Play! Together we can win, let’s win together!

The Barvatar team is committed to ensure that every visitor has a unique experience. Whether you want a turn at the controls or not: the main thing is that you have a great time.
As an open house, it is clear that Barvatar will put you first. A place to which you can go for a snack, drink, to hang out, to discover games, or to meet people.

We welcome you as an individual or as a group – you’re never alone!

We’re on top of things

Barvatar constantly adapts to the latest trends and continues to innovate. Our guests and partners are involved in our story, and we’re doing everything we can to meet their needs. Do you have a food allergy? A suggestion for a new meal or game? A new trend? A community event?

We’re open to it!

Work hard - stay humble

Barvatar wants to make the fun factor of games as accessible as possible in a non-intrusive way, without taking away from the strengths of the existing game communities. Our approach and message are as broad as possible, but always with the right twist.

We do not see ourselves as the main specialists, but rather as facilitators. We work together with experts from the game and esports world to put together a diverse and complete range. We work hard every day to provide our visitors with the best possible insights and added value.
