The upscale bowling center, which is being established in the former eSkape Entertainment Center building, is scheduled to open Oct. 15, Brunswick announced Tuesday.
The new facility, branded simply as Brunswick’s, will feature 32 bowling lanes, a Chicago-themed laser tag arena, a 10,000-square-foot arcade and a proprietary Tavern ’45 that will serve “American pub fare with a focus on unique, quality ingredients,” according to the company.
Tavern ‘45’s menu will include small-plate options, such as chicken and white bean chili and Vietnamese pork belly tacos, while entrees will range from burgers and paninis to Thai red curry chicken hand-stretched pizza and Tavern ’45 mac and cheese with a potato chip crust.
A full bar will be stocked with local craft beer as well as the fixings for cocktails.
Guests will also find “plush furnishings and mood lighting to create an enhanced ambiance,” according to a press release. The center was designed by Des Plaines-based Chipman Design Architecture, Brunswick said.
“The Brunswick’s bowling experience is rooted in a deep focus on guest service,” said Greg Lundgren, general manager of the Buffalo Grove location. “Our staff is trained to anticipate our guests’ needs – not just respond to them. Whether a guest needs assistance picking the right ball or even choosing the right craft beer, our team is ready to help them make their time at Brunswick’s a stand-out experience.”
Brunswick’s will be open from 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. The location will also be available for private events.
Staff members are still being hired for the new facility, according to Brunswick's website.
This will be the third Brunswick’s facility in the U.S. The other two locations are in Georgia.
