Doors are at 6:00pm but the event starts at 7:00, so make sure you get there on time because you won’t want to miss a minute of the action!

Up to 32 players will battle it out in this double elimination Mortal Kombat 11 tournament for the PS4. The matches will be projected up onto screens for spectators to watch. Players will also have a special VIP area with free play MK11 gaming for warm ups. Players do not need to bring anything with them to compete. However, if a player wishes to use their own controller that is fine as long as it meets the requirements stated in the rules which you can read here. A Brook converter is allowed for those who wish to use Xbox One controllers. The tournament brackets will be viewable at Challonge.com on the day of the tournament.

What makes this night even more brutal? How about a live rock concert! Your adrenaline will be over the top as live performances serve as the soundtrack for the tournament battles being projected up onto the walls for you to watch. Bands will be announced prior to the event. When the bands aren’t playing, you can bet our live DJ will be spinning your favorite jams from the original Mortal Kombat movie soundtrack! This is truly going to be A Night of Brutality! If you are interested in performing at the event please send us a message on our contact page.


If you are a cosplayer or just want to add another layer of fun to your night, we are having a Mortal Kombat themed costume / cosplay contest. Simply show up to the event dressed as your MK character of choice and in the middle of the event we will bring out a panel of judges who will vote on the official winner for a cash prize. The winner of the audience popular vote will also receive a prize. So get your costume ready and let’s make this a night to remember!


Guests who are of age can also visit the bar area where they want to get an adult beverage from our kustom Mortal Kombat themed drink menu!  Come enjoy a Soul Stealer cocktail or a shot of Reptile’s Acid. While you are at the bar you will also be able to watch the original Mortal Kombat movies back to back playing on the tv screens during the entirety of the event. Remember to drink responsibly so that everyone can have a good and be safe time. 

If you start to feel overly excited from everything going on at our event and find the sudden urge to get in on the action, there will be free-play gaming stations where you can simply walk up and play the original Mortal Kombat games. Maybe the new Mortal Kombat 11 isn’t your thing but you were the master of the klassics… this is your chance to show everyone your mad skills and maybe even flash a few of your best finishers in the process. 

If you want to take a little break from the action, head on over to our vendor area and pick up some event swag or merch and support the businesses that helped make this event possible in the first place!

If you are a vendor and you would like to sponsor and/or setup a table at the event, simply fill out the form below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
