Main Event Entertainment, the nation’s fastest-growing bowling-anchored dining and entertainment destination, is opening its third Phoenix-area center – located at 1735 S. San Tan Village Pkwy in Gilbert – on Tuesday, May 23.

Main Event is consistently ranked the “best place for parties,” thanks to its distinctive “Eat. Bowl. Play.” experience. From hassle-free birthday parties to company team-building events to an evening out enjoying a great meal and some friendly competition, Main Event offers more ways to have fun than you can pack into one visit!

The new Gilbert center will host an exclusive VIP event on Sunday, May 21, from 4-7 p.m. and its ceremonial “lane christening” and grand opening from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on May 23, hosted by the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce and the Chandler Chamber of Commerce. During the event, attendees are encouraged to experience the new center first-hand with free food, beverages, activities and game play.

“We’re thrilled to open our doors and share another state-of-the-art Main Event with the Phoenix community,” said Charlie Keegan, CEO of Main Event Entertainment. “We invite everyone to come out and enjoy some delicious food, play an assortment of incredible games and maybe even try something completely new – like laser tag or the World’s Largest Pac-Man. We’ve got it all in our beautifully designed new center in Gilbert.”

The VIP event will also include a check presentation to Make-A-Wish Arizona. Tens of thousands of volunteers, donors and supporters advance the Make-A-Wish® vision to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. In the United States and its territories, on average, a wish is granted every 34 minutes.

The 50,000-square-foot entertainment center was built from the ground up with Main Event’s new design prototype, which features 22 ice-white lanes with multi-color LED lighting and luxury seating, laser tag, billiards, shuffleboard, a high-ropes adventure course and a games gallery featuring more than 100 of the latest interactive and virtual video games.

And whether you’re looking for a chef-inspired casual dining experience in a full-service American-fare restaurant, specialty pizzas in an Italian-themed cafe or handcrafted cocktails in a high-energy bar surrounded by big screen TVs, Main Event’s chefs and bartenders aim to please.

The center offers fully equipped private meeting spaces with the latest audio-visual technology, full-service catering, free Wi-Fi and everything else essential to hosting corporate meetings, team-building exercises, holiday parties and other gatherings both large and small.

“We are thrilled to welcome Main Event to Gilbert,” said Kathy Tilque, President/CEO of the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce. “Not only is it a wonderful place to eat and play, but it’s a great place to work, too. We’re thankful that they’ve brought so many good new jobs to our community, and we know the center will be a great addition to our local economy.”

The new center is adding more than 150 jobs to the community, and hiring for fun and outgoing team members is still underway. Interested candidates are encouraged to visit mainevent.com/careers.
