Help Save Vigilante
Thank you: the last 8 months have been the journey of a lifetime. Unfortunately, it has become clear that Vigilante will close its doors if its current level of patronage continues. While the danger is not imminent, without a course correction it is inevitable. With the help of your feedback, we have been driven to push ourselves every day. Vigilante is a challenging, ambitious and original concept. But with your input we have grown into the restaurant we wanted to be when we opened in February.
How Can I Help?
Try Our New Fall Gastropub Menu
After refocusing from fusion food to bar fare in June, Vigilante’s kitchen set a goal of elevating that menu to “gastropub fare” (a bar with high quality bar food). With new kitchen leadership and a whole new fall menu we are starting the rebranding process from Vigilante Gaming Bar to Vigilante Gastropub and Games. Expect to see this change take place over the next week! Experience four new salad rolls, four new pizzas, three new appetizers and six new sliders (plus your old favorites) with increased portion sizes at the same $13 meal price. For the first time, we have achieved an 8 week run of nothing but positive food review comments, and only 1 sub 5 star review. Thank you: with your help we have become the restaurant we always envisioned. Here’s the new menu:
Plan a group outing for our social hall.
When we opened, our layout was not conducive to larger parties. Since then, we have doubled our parking capacity and quadrupled our capacity for large parties by rearranging half the restaurant into beer garden seating. We’ve also increased the number of copies of our most popular social games. Have 12 friends who want to play What Do You Meme? We now have the space to serve everyone and their grandmother.
Enjoy a Happy Hour with New Sake Cocktails and Mario Kart
Plus, we now feature a Mario Kart/Smash Bros/Zelda rig at the bar. $4 Texas Draft Beers and $5 Sake bombs from 4pm to 7pm Monday to Friday makes for a helluva good time. (ps. We also installed sun shades to kill the glare inside and patio furniture to enjoy the great weather outside).
We are also proud to announce we now exclusively carry sake from Austin’s own (incredible) Texas Sake Company. We are now combining their amazing sakes with new in house infusions and cocktail/bomb combinations. Warning: our drinks have gotten a lot stronger.
Come cowork over lunch!
We offer 3 of our new, amazing plates for $9.75 between 11am and 4pm. We also don’t charge any table or game fees before 7pm on weekdays.With 1700 sq inches of space, power outlets at every table, new acoustic panels and 100% service light functionality, our space is an ideal coworking zone. Or, if you’re on a quick lunch break: we plate all in one course for a swift lunch experience.
We have prepared more changes for the coming weeks, and will be rolling them out one week after another. We aren’t perfect, but Vigilante is growing in leaps and bounds, and we will continue to push ourselves until we can impress every patron that comes to us.
Traditionally, you only get one first impression. Come see how much we’ve grown. Help keep the dream alive. We are excited to revamp that first impression. We are excited for you to meet the new Vigilante.
With love and gratitude,
