Having a bunch of people sit around and play Starcraft for 40 minutes at a time kinda kills the entire social aspect of the thing. I can do that at home and not have to shower. :p
You can most definitely make something like that a social experience. Don't assume playing Starcraft means the only thing you can do is sit there and play 1v1s on the ladder all day.
In this fantasy world of mine, there would constantly be team games, mono-battles, and silly FFA challenges. The games would try to incorporate as many people as possible, with the games even being casted in the bar. You could also then have small tournaments for prizes, with players going to the bar with friends in-between matches, people just hanging out watching, etc.
As much as it is my love, I imagine the #1 attraction would most likely be shooters and sports games on PS/Xbox. Even the Nintendo Wii would work well here.
