After 13 months of converting a west Santa Rosa wine warehouse into a 130,000-square-foot sports and entertainment complex, crews are preparing to have more of the food and fun side of The Epicenter indoor complex open by year-end.
Soon to open are Victory House sports bar and restaurant; 7Ten Social, a 16-lane upscale bowling lounge; and 7Ten Dark Ride Theater, an interactive video game ride. Four lanes are in a separate room with an adjoining banquet area for private events.
Victory House’s bar is set to have a “huge focus on local products: local beers, local spirits, local wines, local food,” said Colin Knight, general manager for entertainment. The bar will have 24 beers on tap and “extensive” wine selection, with one-third changing seasonally.
Over the bar is a 40-foot “video wall,” with a 16-foot screen in the middle of the laser-projection high-definition monitors.
The restaurant and bar has capacity for 275 people. The scratch kitchen led by Executive Chef Charles Roseneau is being tailored to serve upscale sports-bar food plus Sonoma County-styled extras such as 22-ounce ribeye steak. Its hours will be 11 a.m. until midnight on weekdays and 2 a.m. Friday–Saturday.
Also set to open in coming weeks are the Game On Arcade with Delta Strike Advanced Laser Tag in a two-story section, Laser Frenzy light-beam obstacle course, large play structures and Clubhouse Grill snack bar.
The sports and fitness part of the facility, taking up most of it, opened Oct. 3 with tenants Sports City, Anytime Fitness, Rockin’ Jump trampoline park and a Starbucks shop.
Sports City expanded from a nearby Santa Rosa warehouse to three soccer fields and a multisport court.
Theis California’s largest
Epicenter cost nearly $20 million to build, before being outfitted with equipment. It will employ more than 300 people when fully open.
