VÜK, the pinball arcade and pizza parlor at 4924 St Elmo Ave in Bethesda, will be closing May 16th.
The arcade’s five year lease is coming to an end and construction will soon begin on a new high-rise apartment complex that will be replacing VÜK and the surrounding building.
A message on their Facebook stated, “VUK’s last day open is Sunday, May 16th. Our 5 year lease ends- and the bulldozers are coming to make way for a high rise apartment building. Our Cylon, pizza recipes, autographed Slayer setlist, Warriors poster, LOTR sword, various skulls, etc. will lay dormant in storage until further notice. Games will be disbursed to MOM’s College Park & MOM’s Abington, PA. It has been a pleasure- a wonderful experiment- and we’ll post a farewell message here later…”
VÜK was opened by MOM’s Organic Market CEO Scott Nash back in 2016.
