Punch Bowl Social was imagined by Robert Thompson after an extensive career of conceptualizing and operating both large-format entertainment brand and independent boutique restaurants. Following the successful openings of nine different restaurant concepts, Robert began to actualize his vision for Punch Bowl Social early 2010 but it took three years of real estate searches, design iterations and funding discussions before the first location opened in Denver’s historic Baker neighborhood in November 2012.
Prior to me patronizing this establishment I had never heard of it, I simply did a search on Open Table in Austin for American restaurants. I really enjoyed the atmosphere, service, and the food.. Reason behind the 5 stars. I was mostly attracted to the layout. It was a great environment to have a night out with friends. You can have dinner, as well as enjoy bowling, darts or billiards. I even saw a place for Karaoke! I wasn’t expecting any of that. I went for Brunch, but I plan to visit another location for dinner. I’m sure you’ll be able to find a location in your city, if not check out all the cities Punch Bowl Social will soon be. I’m mostly excited they are building locations in my current city, Dallas.. And my hometown, Milwaukee.
Current Locations: Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, and Schaumburg.
Coming Soon To: Arlington VA, Dallas, Fort Worth, Milwaukee, Miami, Salt Lake City, Washington D.C, and St. Louis.
