PARK SLOPE — Bottle service didn't fly, but maybe video games will.
Kemistry bar and lounge, the controversial night spot whose liquor license application was rejected last week, could see new life as a "social club for teenagers," according to Atlantic Yards Report.
Kemistry's backers plan to open a gathering spot for young people, outfitted with arcade games, "the latest electronics," and "social media devices," according to an email to Atlantic Yards Report "from an account previously used by project manager Damali L'Elie."
The club would be aimed at 13- to 19-year-olds and would operate seven days a week, the email stated. L'Elie did not respond immediately to a request for comment from DNAinfo New York, nor did did Kemistry co-owner James Brown and his attorney Jerome Sussman.
Kemistry was slated to open at 260 Flatbush Ave. but faced massive opposition from local residents, who argued that a nightclub with bottle service didn't belong in a relatively quiet residential area. The club would have had a back entrance on Prospect Place.
Peter Adelman, the attorney who represented local group Prospect Place Neighbors, said his group was ready to hear new ideas for the space, provided they're appropriate for the neighborhood.
"We haven't been presented with anything, but needless to say, if there's a use for that site that's location appropriate, we're totally open ears," Adelman said.
