Nationwide growth continues with grand opening of 64,000-sf dining and entertainment center set for May 2
Pittsburgh FUN seekers are about to discover their new favorite destination.
Main Event Entertainment, the nation’s fastest-growing bowling-anchored dining and entertainment destination, is opening its first Pittsburgh center – located at 200 Quinn Drive, on Tuesday, May 2. It is the latest of seven Main Event centers set to open across the nation this year.
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 that you can pack into one visit!
The new Pittsburgh center will host an exclusive VIP event on Sunday, April 30, from 4- 7 p.m. and its ceremonial “lane christening” and grand opening from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on May 2, hosted by the Pittsburgh Airport Area Chamber of Commerce and other local dignitaries. During the event, attendees are encouraged to experience the new center first-hand with free food, beverages, activities and game play. To request a ticket for the VIP event, email PITSalesMgr@mainevent.com.
The event will also include a check presentation to Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The organization grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy in 57 Pennsylvania counties and West Virginia.
“We are so pleased to introduce to the people of Pittsburgh the truly distinctive dining and entertainment experience that is Main Event,” said Charlie Keegan, CEO of Main Event Entertainment. “We’re inviting the entire community 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.”
The 64,000-square-foot, two-story entertainment center has been completely renovated with Main Event’s new design prototype, which features 24 state-of-the-art lanes with multi-color LED lighting and luxury seating, laser tag, billiards, shuffleboard 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 our city,” said Michelle Kreutzer, Executive Vice President of the Pittsburgh Airport Area Chamber of Commerce. “The center is absolutely gorgeous, it’s packed with countless fun things to do and the food will knock your socks off! Of course, its economic impact on our area, starting with the great jobs it is bringing, can’t be understated either.”
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.
