Bowling Duckpin, vintage arcade games at the center of Greenwood Village’s new entertainment venue
BOIS VERD VILLAGE | After more than a year stuck mostly in pandemic loneliness, summer hangouts are back, and the opening of Pindustry in the village of Greenwood reminds us how much we missed sharing a pizza and playing a few games. bowling with friends.
That, and this downtown Denver isn’t required for a quality hangout like it once was.
The 54,500 square foot entertainment venue on Arapahoe Road had a smooth opening this weekend, with over a dozen traditional bowling and duckpin lanes (small balls, lighter pins, and no special shoes needed) , vintage inspired arcade games and the one sky bridges in the metroplex.
A regulation-sized corn-hole arena, ping-pong tables, Italian cuisine, and 10 craft beer rotating taps round out the venue’s regular offerings.
A small stage at the back of the hall will feature shows chosen to complement the musicians playing nearby Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater, and guests can expect a DJ on the airlift for Sunday brunch.
â€œWe researched and visited the most popular restaurant and bartainment concepts across the country to bring together a diverse mix of activities at Pindustry,â€ said Bob Koontz, project developer who has been working along the corridor for over. of three decades, in a statement. declaration. “We are here to have fun, to love each other and to be human.”
Koontz wanted bowling to be the centerpiece of the hall, it’s a more accessible way to enjoy the hobby. But shoes are available for hire, and the full-size lanes showcase the place’s roots in nostalgia. An impressive array of arcade and pinball games is also an easy way to spend your time at Pindustry.
Denver’s millennial dream spot, which seats 2,300 guests, is camouflaged in a standard suburban mall. The developers turned a former used car center into a venue with help from the newly established Arapahoe Entertainment District. Tax breaks are available for developers renovating old buildings into entertainment destinations along the corridor west of I-25.
Other sites are expected to join Pindustry in the future, the next one a food and beer hall.
Grange Hall, the 13,000 square foot project of chef and restaurateur Troy Guard, will open in August. It has to be a collection of “Denver’s brightest minds in food, beer and alcohol,” according to the Guard’s TAG Restaurant Group website.
Burgers, fried chicken, plenty of beer, sushi, and ice cream are expected to fill the room alongside two restaurants in the TAG restaurant group, one a quick noodle bowl joint and the other featuring a pizza to thick crust.
Pindustry’s food offerings are Italian inspired, elevating the bowling experience to more of a dining experience. Charcuterie boards, salads, specialty toasts and wood-fired pizzas replace the traditional fatty cuisine of the bowling alleys of yesteryear.
A grand opening of Pindustry is scheduled for July 17th. The venue currently opens at 4 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m. on weekends. It is located at 7939 E. Arapahoe Rd.
