With high-end computer equipment and a full-service snack bar, Wangyu e-Sports is changing the face of Internet gaming in China. Unlike the dark and seedy internet cafes of the past, this hybrid gaming space caters to the needs of the modern gamer.

Wangyu e-Sports is a high-end Internet cafe located at the Beijing Workers' Stadium. The cafe is operated by WYWK, which is a company that owns a string of successful Internet bars. The cafe itself is separated into different rooms with private spaces available for couples and teams. Each gaming station is equipped with a 27-inch iMac computer that is hooked up to live-gaming websites. In addition to the premium gaming facilities, Wangyu e-Sports also has a snack bar with food and drinks available to hungry gamers.

With more than 300 customers coming through each day, the cafe demonstrates the resurgence of China's Internet bars as a comfortable space for gamers to practice their skills.
