Updated March 23 at 10:40 a.m. to include an opening date.

The Pharmacy, a bar in Deep Ellum that specialized gorgeous adult milkshakes, has closed.

According to a note on the door, the business was involved in a name dispute with Texas State Board of Pharmacy, which said that because the bar was not a registered pharmacy, it could not use that name.

In an interview with GuideLive, the board's executive director Allison Benz said the organization received a report the Pharmacy was using that terminology and sent a letter to the owners asking them to voluntarily stop using it. According to the Texas Pharmacy Act, businesses may not display the words "pharmacy" or "apothecary" or use a graphic representation that would suggest it is a pharmacy unless it's actually licensed by the Benz's organization.

Seriously, look: 3 beautiful, boozy milkshakes from a new bar in Deep Ellum

The space where The Pharmacy resided on Elm Street, however, will reopen soon, says Wilson -- this time as a bar with arcade games. 

The new concept will be called Select Start Arcade and Bar and include mostly new-school games, as well as a retro multi-game unit and some old-school favorites. Think basketball and Skee-ball machines, Guitar Hero, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat and four-player Pac-Man, Wilson says. (The Pharmacy opened with a few arcade games and had been gradually adding to its stock.)

While the bar will still serve ice cream and ice cream floats, it will no longer serve The Pharmacy's signature boozy shakes. Instead, it plans to expand its menu of cocktails and craft beer selection. The spot will be family-friendly until 10 p.m., when it will admit only patrons 21-and-up.

Select Start opens March 23 at 5 p.m.

For those lamenting the loss of The Pharmacy, Wilson says not to worry. He and partners Corey Good, Braxton Martin and Jacob Cox plan to reopen the concept elsewhere in Dallas (under a different name, Wilson notes) with a kitchen. And yes, it will serve its Instgram-worthy shakes.

Arcade bars are all the rage right now in Dallas-Fort Worth. Here are a few others you can visit or look forward to:
