Any outdoorsman worth his weight in beer knows that a happy camper is one with a brew in hand. And that’s exactly the clever idea behind Alamo City’s brand new bar and entertainment space.
Camp 1604, a 12,000 square foot indoor-outdoor camping-inspired beer garden, opened this week at 5535 N. Loop West at the Rim Crossing in northwest San Antonio alongside other entertainment concepts and restaurants like Top Golf, Andretti Karting, Velvet Taco, and a soon-to-open Kerbey Lane location.
Austin-based KPG Hospitality’s new concept features tons of space to congregate, a full bar offering over 60 beers, and the perfect food to pair with beer from the on-site Holy Smoke food truck. (Might we suggest you and your friends try a pitcher of beer paired with Texas Twinkies 4 Four, Holy Smoke’s bacon-wrapped jalapeños stuffed with brisket and cream cheese, for a tasty first Camp adventure. 1604?)
Once you’ve gathered your buddies, your beer and your barbecue, it’s time to experience the fun, and Camp 1604 offers a playground of good times, including table tennis, swings for adults, a field archery and a simulated ax-throwing setup.
And coming to the entertainment complex on January 4 is another entertainment venue Kung Fu Saloon, the vintage arcade-themed bar that falls under the KPG Hospitality umbrella. Although Kung Fu Saloon has locations in Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth and Nashville, this will be the first San Antonio outpost for the brand.
Kung Fu will feature arcade games like “Mortal Kombat,” “NBA Jam” and “Mario Kart,” in addition to classic ride-on delights like Skee-Ball, as well as ping-pong and karaoke rooms. And perhaps the coolest attraction: Kung Fu will host a year-round themed pop-up bar revolving around pop culture favorites.
Of course, if you prefer to stretch out in the beer garden with a cold beer under the holm oaks or relax comfortably in Camp 1604’s 4,000 square foot indoor space while watching a game on one of the many TVs are cool too , Campers.
“We pride ourselves on creating unique spaces and experiences where friends can come together to socialize while enjoying great food, great drinks and activities,” said Bri Domowitz, Chief Marketing Officer of KPG Hospitality. “Camp 1604 and Kung Fu Saloon have become part of a very fun and exciting neighborhood in San Antonio, and we look forward to providing a great experience for area residents.”
