The former Slim’s Pork Chop Express restaurant on Seel Street is to become ’16 Bit Chicken’ – a gourmet chicken takeaway with speakeasy-style retro games arcade.
Opening this summer, the concept has been revealed by Graffiti Spirits Group, which was behind the previous eatery, as well as a number of other well-known Liverpool haunts including Salt Dogs Slims, Santa Chupitos and Santa Maluco.
The independent restaurant-bar group says 16 Bit Chicken will take guests on a “nostalgic experience like no other”, offering “tasty food” combined with a hidden retro arcade which will feature 16 different machines including ‘Pac-Man’, ‘Point Blank’, ‘Time Crisis’ and ‘Golden Axe’.
Guests will be able to visit during the day and into the early hours, with eat-in and takeaway options available.
Matt Farrell, co-founder of Graffiti Spirits, says: “16 Bit Chicken will be the first of its kind in Liverpool. We’re combining moreish takeaway food with a retro arcade that will take our guests on a journey, harking back to the days where these games were really popular.
“Seel Street is packed with bars and restaurants so 16 Bit Chicken will be ideal for a late night bite or for an alternative way to spend the night with friends and family.”
