The Slade Arms appears to be a fairly run-down biker bar located in the suburb of Dulston. Typical of most biker bars the old jukebox is loaded with CCR, Steppenwolf, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Cult. Of course these days there isn't any music playing unless some industrious survivor has managed to hook-up a portable generator somewhere nearby.
In the days prior to the "Malton Incident" the bar's waitresses were well known for their good looks, but also for not putting up with any hassle from the patrons. One of the informal traditions at the Slade Arms was for women, once adequately drunk, to balance atop one of the many unsteady tables and attempt to tack their bra to the ceiling. While in no way famous, the bar was said to have served delicious barbecue that was made from the same smoker used since the 1930s.
One could say that the Slade Arms is the type of place that once you had a seat, you would be tempted to stay awhile and take in the local color. Where, if you stopped by 15 years ago, it would still be here and look just the way you remembered it.
Noted NecroTech scientist, Caleb Usher, once tried to order from the bar, but was turned away. To which he later lamented, "Why are there no bars in Malton that serve 'Scientists Only'. Scientists need to drink too you know. We need our brains to be well-lubricated...that's a science fact people!"
Barricades should be kept at Extremely Heavily at all times. The true purpose of this building is to serve as a heavily fortified shelter for Malton's veteran survivors. This ruling was set forth by the Dulston Optimal Defense Diagram and is enforced by all member groups of the Dulston Alliance.

June 22nd, 2008 - Cottesloe Cheesecakes has claimed the Slade Arms as its own. Will still remain EHB when possible, so no change there. There's power and a transmitter. Please don't retune the transmitter without good reason! --Disc10 17:17, 22 June 2008 (BST)

September 12th, 2006 - The Minions of the Apocalypse, flush with their recent victory over Treweeke Mall arrived here to celebrate, only to discover on their arrival that the comfortable neighborhood bar they had so often ransacked before had been turned into one of the "Father Mickey O'Sullivan's Olde Tyme Irish Pub and Sports Bar". Once overrun they agreed that the beefnecked jocks inside were considered a welcome change from the fatty mall rats.
