With a scratch kitchen, three bars and entertainment options like bowling, table tennis, 1980s arcade games and pinball, Skee-Ball, shuffle board, corn hole, marbles and darts, Punch Bowl Social is currently thriving in Denver, Austin, Portland and Detroit. The 24,000-square-foot location in Denver, formerly a Big Lots, is popular for corporate outings and events and recently debuted two private karaoke rooms with more than 5,000 songs to choose from.

The project is expected to be completed in the first half of 2016.
