Here's some more good news for downtown Cheyenne. The historic building on 1617 Capitol Avenue may have a new tenant. Flippers recently posted a sign in the window advertising its application for a retail liquor license from the city of Cheyenne.

So what can we expect? According to a recent post on the Fort Collins Craigslist Page, Flippers will be a "bar arcade" featuring a family-friendly bar and restaurant with an arcade showcasing vintage pinball and video games.

The Midwest Arcades and Pinball Facebook group has posted several pictures and videos of the new "bar arcade", which is said to include over 50 classic games.

Owners had originally planned to open on May 1st. If their efforts to secure a retail liquor license are successful, they should be ready to open sometime this summer.

The venue has been vacant since June of 2015 when The Drunken Skunk went out of business. Last week, the Himalayan Cafe, a new restaurant specializing in cuisine from India and Nepal, announced its upcoming opening in the space next door on 1613 Capitol.

Similar "bar arcades" have been successful in other parts of the country. Several Denver bars have adopted the concept, including the 1UP on Blake Street. The popular LoDo hangout recently expanded, opening a second location on East Colfax.

The Bar Fort Collins and Pinball Jones are both trendy hot spots in Old Town Fort Collins.

The concept was also popular in Laramie. Unfortunately, owners of The Hero Depot were unable to secure a liquor license. However, many of their video games now occupy the Laramie bar Shocktoberfest.
