PHOENIX — Arizonans will soon have another spot to bowl, play billiards, foosball, table tennis, arcade games, and hang out with family and friends.
810 Billards & Bowling, a South Carolina-based entertainment concept, plans to open two entertainment centers in Chandler and downtown Phoenix, its first locations in the state, in 2021.
The Chandler venue will be located south of Chandler Fashion Center mall at Chandler Village Center in a vacant space next to Old Navy, said Ronak Manek, the franchise owner of the Chandler location, along with his wife, Poonam.
"There will be 12 bowling lanes, there will be billiards, there will be (an) arcade, there will be shuffleboard," said Poonam Manek in a recent interview with ABC15. "There will be a full-service restaurant. Comfort American food. We'll have things like wings and pizza."
An online menu features a variety of American appetizers, such as pretzels and beer cheese, fried pickles, chicken tenders, nachos, and hummus, as well a number of pizzas, burgers, sandwiches, and salads. The bar will have a mix of beer, wine, and specialty cocktails.
In downtown Phoenix, 810 Billard will open a 28,000-square-foot corporate-owned location at CityScape where Lucky Strike used to be, a spokesperson told ABC15.
Lucky Strike closed earlier this year because of the economic impacts of the pandemic, a spokesperson for RED Development said.
"810 Billards and Bowling is aimed to be a family-friendly place where everybody can feel comfortable to have a fun time, whether it's a time with friends and dinner, or whether it's a time with family, whatever is up your alley, pun intended," said Manek.
The concept has three other locations, all of which are located in South Carolina, according to its website.
