The details are slim, but it seems someone has planned an arcade bar and lounge for the former funeral parlor/yoga studio/art gallery at 221 St. Philip St. The sign placed in the window declares that Slackers Arcade Bar & Lounge is coming soon.
A tipster passing by the Slackers space said that the establishment has around 15 arcade games and a bar inside. The upcoming lounge doesn’t seem to have an online presence, and attempts to stop in to ask questions have failed. There is another Slackers arcade bar in San Antonio, Texas, but the two don’t seem to be related.
If you have any inside knowledge on the new St. Philip St. concept, let us know. In the mean time, we’ll be down the street at D'allesandro's Pizza staking the place out and wondering if they will have Mortal Kombat II or Ms. Pac-Man on deck to play.
