Atlanta’s roster of entertainment destinations becomes even longer in 2019, when Atlantic Station welcomes the 25,000-square-foot Bowlero gaming concept.
“Bowlero will bring an immersive entertainment experience to Atlantic Station,” says Nick Garzia, director of leasing for Atlantic Station’s developer, Hines Southeast. “It combines modern convenience with a retro style and will provide the kind of interactive fun that lets guests escape and just enjoy the moment.”
In addition to backlit bowling lanes, the sprawling concept will also include an interactive gaming arcade featuring The World’s Largest Pac-Man, The Walking Dead, Mario Kart DX, Giant Connect Four and NBA Hoops Basketball, along with high-definition graphics and 4-D gaming experiences.
Guests can also order food and drinks from a full gastro-pub menu offering oversized (and over-the-top) creations such as 5-pound burgers, 2-foot-long hot dogs and Bowlero’s signature “Big Swig” cocktails.
Located at 19th and Market, the concept will be part of an AMLI residential complex slated to open in 2021. Look for more shops and restaurants opening here; Atlantic Station plans to add 25,000 square feet of new shops and restaurants at the base of the complex. “Midtown is undergoing an unprecedented boom in all phases of development: residential, retail, office and hospitality sectors,” says Garzia. “The emerging Millennial generation is choosing to live in town versus moving to the suburbs, and capturing them along with office workers and tourists just makes a lot of sense.”
