Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers Opening in Bowling Green, Kentucky



Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakersis proud to announce their newest opening in Bowling Green, K.Y., on Monday, March 26th. This Mellow is located at 1035 Chestnut Street, directly across from The Brickyard.

Owner Bob Holderfield is thrilled to bring Mellow to the downtown area. “It has always been a dream to open a Mellow in the downtown market, while incorporating an under-used space and developing it into a highly attractive concept for the community,” states Holderfield.

The menu features a variety of pizzas, hoagies, salads, calzones and appetizers, only using the highest quality ingredients. Options for vegetarians, vegans, kids, and those on a gluten-free diet are also available.

Each Mellow is designed in a unique art-filled environment. Holderfield describes, “The exterior of the white building is painted with a multi-color sound wave with a Rock and Roll theme, which previews the electrifying feel that you will experience once you enter the restaurant.” Some of the incredible pieces of art include:

  • The world’s largest man-made mushroom standing 32 feet tall and spanning more than half of the main dining room
  • Three-dimensional guitar vortex sculpture wrapping the open kitchen concept
  • Backlit letters from the covers of Classic Rock album covers
  • Large mural in the bar inspired by a Steve Miller Band concert poster from the late 60’s

This Mellow has something for everyone, including a private dining room and a seasonal patio with a fire pit. These are just a few details which enhance the warm, welcoming and family friendly environment that Mellow has to offer.

To complement the dining experience there is a full service bar with a great variety of craft beers, wine and cocktail options. Adventurous guests can join the Mellow Mushroom Beer Club and taste their way through 100 beers, receiving exciting members-only rewards along the way. The lively bar will feature trivia night, live music on the weekends and sporting events on 8 flat screen TVs.

The Mellow Mushroom will operate 7 days a week Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
