Vigilante aims to unite board games, food, and drink with its restaurant and bar when it opens on Friday, February 17 in Crestview, with over 150 different titles, custom-built tables, and a whole lot of beer.
Hand-held, unmessy food is emphasized for the menu, concocted by Derrick Hoang. This means sliders, taquitos, sushi, skewers, sliders, cookies, and more. The lineup for events include the Sunday morning-themed Death by Brunch with a three-course meal, Dungeons and Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, a James Bond-themed poker match, and others.
There were many nooks and crannies for Eater photographer Courtney Pierce to explore, from the secret bookcase entry into the private game rooms (hint: pull on the bookcase itself), the intricate gaming tables with two different bat signals beckoning for more players or calling the attention of a server, to a whole lot of nerdy references. Take a look through the space before it opens below.
Opening day hours are from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., with special events. Regular hours are from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. every day.
