It's been done. There's a place in Seattle, WA called Card Kingdom / Cafe Mox that does something similar, though it's focused on table top games (card games, board games, etc). They have been wildly successful.

There's also a place called the AFK tavern in Everett, WA that does what you are describing, though I'm not sure how prosperous they are.

The links are to their websites.

Well, I wouldn't call it a nerd bar for one; just let the bar have its atmosphere, and let the people come depending on if they like the theme the bar is aiming for.

Televise tournaments - yes.

Public consoles - I wouldn't suggest. Maintenance and hoping the games won't get hogged is a public bother.

Keep it subtle.

I'm down for it. We already have the EXP Bar in Vnacouver and the AFK Tavern in Seattle. I've been told that the food and drinks in EXP is terrible.

Just remember that as a restaurant/bar, your absolute main focus should be on food and drink. Everything else is the icing on the cake.

If you're expecting people to play while eating, look into tapas style foods.

Nope. Too many gamers/nerds whatever are too socially awkward to talk with.
