The latest craze to hit Pittsburgh nightlife is the entertainment venue. Most of these venues encompass items we miss as adults: go-carts, video games, and mini golf. So where can you venture to make a really cool new date night?
This is mini golf and driving range combined. The idea is to drive balls towards goals for various points to win skill-leveled games. Each bay is designed for 6 players with couches or high-top tables. The golf balls are high-tech and have sensors to pinpoint where they land for point accuracy.
Food and cocktails are plentiful. Customers can eat everything from nachos to burgers and even a Brisket Grilled Cheese. Beer and cocktails include craft beer and specialty cocktails in golf bags designed for two.
