Playing off the theme of a playground programmed for adults, Pinstack will bring its blend of entertainment to Austin later this year.

The complex at Tech Ridge Center (500 Canyon Ridge Drive) in North Austin will feature a bowling alley, restaurant and bar, along with a slew of activities and games for adults, including a 24-foot rock climbing wall, two-story laser tag arena, bumper cars, a large game room with arcade classics and the pinball machines, and a 16-person Giant Foosball table that owners say is the first of its kind in Texas.

And, yes, there will also be a restaurant. And bars (plural). Pinstack’s offerings will include mac-and-cheese pops, pizza, a Texas Smokehouse Burger and almond-crusted salmon. The two bars will serve craft cocktails, wine and beer. And Pinstack will have two features Austinites adore: patio seating and brunch service.

Pinstack is owned by the Dallas-based Entertainment Properties Group, Inc., which operates three locations in the Dallas area.

“We are excited to bring Pinstack to Austin, one of the largest and fastest growing cities in Texas,” Mark Moore, CEO of Entertainment Properties Group, Inc. said in a release. “As we partner with Regency Centers for the first time, our goal is to create a unique and memorable entertainment experience for the surrounding communities and local organizations.”
