Huge eSports bar replacing Toronto's original sports bar

Sports Centre Cafe near Yonge and St. Clair shut down in July. The local watering hole and popular sports bar had been in business since 1989.

While the 7,000 square foot space may longer show hockey games and UFC fights, its new tenants will still carry on the sports bar tradition, albeit in a newfangled manner.

That's because Raiders E-Sports Centre is moving in at 49 St. Clair Ave. W. It'll feature 11 different types of craft beer, cider, a food menu and 24 gaming PCs as well as 30 HD televisions for both fans and avid gamers.

According to Raider's Facebook page, it's aiming to open next week, but it still hasn't announced an exact date just yet.
