New Flippers ‘Bar Arcade’ Coming To Downtown Cheyenne
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.
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.
