What comes into mind when "Paris" is mentioned? The first thing that comes to mind is the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre. However, do you think of fun places where one can play Call of Duty, have an Animal Crossing tournament, or attend a show of champions?
That one is no longer a trivial question but rather a reality: ESpot introduces esports in this magnificent city, the Parisian way.
A Paradise Designed for Gamers
ESpot is created by two independent and passionate gamers with a mission to promote gaming and esports to all types of audiences. With an area of 2,000 square meters, ESpot aims to bring families and friends together in one place where they can play esports games however they please.
ESpot regularly holds competitive esports events in their Arena
This new gaming temple has recently opened its doors in the heart of Paris last June 2021. It took a year and an investment of five million euros to get Espot ready for operation. ESpot is located near the Louvre, the Halles, and the trendy districts of the city.
One of the founders, Aaron Buckstein, wanted to create a place where everyone is welcome and friendly to families and female gamers. Robin Leproux, Espot's co-founder, insists that their esports center is inclusive and offers a unique experience unlike other esports centers found in the US and Asia.
ESpot is open to the general public, especially targeting families. The venue welcomes anyone who wants to enjoy casual video games, competitive esports, and entertaining events. You can even celebrate your child’s birthday party here!
