The Venue

This event will be held at Localhost The Block, a gaming lounge packed with numerous PCs, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch consoles available for your enjoyment.

Transportation and Parking

  • There are plenty of convenient transportation options to get you safely to and from Localhost in Philadelphia. The venue is located right on the orange SEPTA line between the Spring Garden and Race Vine stations.
  • Use code "PARK" at the kiosk in the "Broad & Vine" parking garage for a discount. Forgot the code? Just tell them you are there for an event at Localhost. "Parkway Corporation" is another nearby parking garage but it is slightly more expensive and doesn't offer the discount.
  • If you're going to be drinking, please consider taking an Uber or a Lyft or having a designated driver. Please drive responsibly!

Open Play Gaming

Enjoy your pick between numerous games across Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and even PC. Gaming is available at an hourly rate but our combination ticket packages offer a discount when you bundle game time with general admission.

  • Access to gaming stations is available on a first-come, first-served basis and is subject to availability.
  • Gaming is NOT included with the general admission ticket but can still be purchased on-site.
  • Combination tickets are available online which offer the best rate for both admission to the event and access to the game stations.
  • Game time does not have to be consecutive. For example, if you purchase the two-hour package, you can start playing at the couch console co-op for an hour, pause to go to check out the vendor marketplace for an hour, grab a bite to eat at the bar, and then come back and play on PC for another hour. Your time will be paused when you are not at a game station.

Vendor Marketplace

  • From 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm, all persons under the age of 14 need to be accompanied by an adult.
