The growing options for competitive socializing in Denver will soon have a new game in town. Puttshack, a tech-infused miniature golf experience paired with globally inspired food and beverage, is celebrating the unveiling of its seventh U.S. location in Denver. Puttshack Denver is opening in the RiNo Art District as part of the Lot 28 development at 2813 Blake St.
The new 24,500-square-foot, single-floor venue features four miniature golf courses that utilize the company’s Trackaball technology. With Trackaball, guests have access to automated scoring, interactive games at each hole, bonus-point opportunities, and more, making it especially fun for groups. Booking of private events is available, with kids welcome a until 8 p.m., when it becomes a venue for only ages 21 and older.
Event planners also won’t have to worry about figuring out options to keep guests of all ages fed and hydrated with flatbreads, sandwiches, salads and shareables like brussel sprouts, crab dip, lamb skewers, and empanadas on the menu. Puttshack Palomas, Cold Brew Espresso Martinis, and Very Berry Mules are just a sampling of the available signature cocktails, with beer (including several Colorado brews), wine, and seltzers also available.
The location in RiNo Art District is the result of a partnership with Lagniappe Capital Partners and Platform Ventures. The neighborhood has a nice selection of boutique hotels with meeting and event space and a multiple repurposed industrial spaces that are now filled with food halls, restaurants, breweries, coffee houses, and shops.
Located near downtown, the district also is known for plentiful colorful murals. In keeping with this aesthetic, Puttshack Denver commissioned local artist Bobby Magee Lopez to paint a mural for its 1,200-square-foot patio.
The Puttshack Denver opening in the RiNo Art District follows quickly on the heels of the Houston venue’s opening in late April, joining locations in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Miami, and St. Louis and four outposts in the United Kingdom. Pittsburgh and Scottsdale, set to open later this spring, are next for the Chicago-based brand that launched in 2018.
