The GamePad is the first bar in Greater Boston made by gamers, for gamers. Founded not too long ago, in the distant year of 2016, The GamePad was created to offer a place where you can immerse yourself in modern gaming while enjoying great food, award winning craft beer, and all your favorite classic and video-game inspired cocktails.
We've teamed up with The Tap Brewing Company to bring you the freshest beer, brewed right on site. Their 10 barrel brewhouse, capable of producing 300 gallons of beer per batch, is located right downstairs, with some of their fermentation and serving vessels visible right from the first floor. At any given time we have 8 beers on draft and a new cask is tapped every Tuesday! Be sure to check in, as our beers are always on changing.
I've been gaming since I could first pick up a controller. I've graduated to PC gaming, but you'll catch me with an Xbox controller every once in a while. Originally an environmental scientist, I traded in my lab gear for a cocktail shaker in effort to bring Boston gamers a place where they could throw back a pint while watching a pro esports match.

My first foray into the gaming world was with the Sega Genesis, and the original Sonic The Hedgehog, which I had my cousin beat for me so I could lie to my parents that I'd done it and had them buy me Sonic 2. I've been not finishing games ever since. In the meantime, I grew up with the dream of being a Doctor, and ended up as a Professional Chef and Restaurant Manager. With a decade's experience under my belt, I firmly stand behind all the food and cocktails that we have on our menu.
