KIRKLAND, Wash., Jan. 22, 2020 /HalcyonTV/ -- This week, Topgolf Entertainment Group, a global sports and entertainment leader, introduces the world's first Lounge by Topgolf. The new, indoor Lounge concept is the first of its kind, featuring an upscale bar and restaurant with an elevated, virtual gaming experience.
Lounge by Topgolf
With the first venue opening in Kirkland, Wash., the Lounge by Topgolf will house a 9,200 square foot upscale restaurant, bar and indoor lounge with an expansive outdoor patio offering panoramic views of Kirkland. The venue includes four entertainment bays and a VIP bay – all powered by Topgolf Swing Suite technology – as well as a private event space and innovative digital sky.
"Lounge by Topgolf demonstrates Topgolf's constant pursuit of the unexpected with an all-indoor, virtual experience different from anything else we've created," said Topgolf Entertainment Group Executive Chairman Erik Anderson. "With Greater Seattle being a center for all things tech, I can't think of a better location for the first Lounge by Topgolf. We use proprietary Topgolf Swing Suite technology to bring our Guests exciting virtual games, all while enjoying locally curated food and beverage selections under a digital sky. Being a proud Seattle-area native, I am excited we're opening the first venue of this concept in my backyard."
This innovative bar and restaurant concept focuses on premium hospitality, craft cocktails and locally curated dishes and spirits offering an elevated experience for all occasions. From the Beignet Shake Up and Tableside Nachos to the Truffle Chicken and Pig Pile, there's a dish for every taste. The cocktail list features fun, surprising twists on cocktails, such as the smoky Lit Punch and tri-colored Magic Trick.
The new venue sits at the epicenter of Kirkland Urban, a new 1.2 million square foot mixed-use residential and retail development in the heart of downtown Kirkland. Lounge by Topgolf is located at 425 Urban Plaza, Kirkland, Wash. 98033 in Suite 200 on the second floor and above the flagship QFC. Four-hour validated parking is available in the garage for all Guests. Other retailers joining Lounge by Topgolf include Mudbay, Bright Horizons, Power Hour 360 and many more.
"We are thrilled to welcome Lounge by Topgolf to Kirkland Urban," said Andrea Lachmann of Kirkland Urban. "Our region has been missing a high-end entertainment destination that families and the late-night crowd can all enjoy. Lounge is also perfectly positioned at Kirkland Urban to offer our office tenants a convenient location for post-work happy hour, corporate events and more."
Technology Innovation at Lounge by Topgolf
Powered by proprietary Topgolf Swing Suite technology, Lounge by Topgolf includes digital screens and a selection of exciting, digital multi-sport games and experiences that can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of skill level.

Concept Combines Retail, Bar, and Private Dining
PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 15, 2020 /HalcyonTV/ -- Pullman Wine Bar & Merchant by David Machado Restaurants brings a new concept to Portland's Lloyd District. Located in the southwest corner of the boutique Hotel Eastlund, also designed by Holst, Pullman occupies a formerly empty retail space facing the Convention Center. To accommodate a range of functions—retail shop, tasting bar serving small plates and wine by the glass, private dining room, and prep kitchen—the design reclaims further square footage from the hotel parking garage. The sequence of spaces progresses from public to private and creates a range of experiences in less than two thousand square feet.
The wine shop sells bottles as well as ships by the case nationally, while the bar focuses on select wines from the Pacific Northwest. The wine inventory is developed and maintained by award-winning wine consultant, David Holstrom.
Custom mahogany millwork, raw steel, slate tile, and polished concrete bring a modern aesthetic to the feeling of a rustic wine cellar. The materials were chosen for their ability to wear well and develop a patina over time. Open storage for cases and bottles, along with a state of the art, self-service, commercial cruvinet system, enable patrons to peruse and explore Pullman's wine offerings on their own. Locally manufactured custom tables, an intimate bar, and the private dining room welcome a range of groups of locals and visitors.
The private dining room seats twenty-four guest in a wine cave-like room that channels a European, old-world aesthetic with vaulted ceilings and a dark, moody color palette. The slope of the sidewalk outside enhances the feeling of descending into an underground wine cave. Pullman's novel concept and thoughtful design have combined to create a new attraction in the burgeoning Convention Center neighborhood.

Since late November, thanks to agreements reached with some US importers and distributors, the distribution has started in stores.
CHICAGO, Dec. 31, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Cantine Europa wines arrive on the US market for the first time. This result has been made possible thanks to an intense wine promotion campaign that has seen several participations in trade fairs, targeted promotion actions and B2B meetings with importers, distributors, retailers and Hotels, Restaurants and Catering groups. The promotional campaign is co-financed by the European Union under Regulation No. 1308/2013.
Cantine Europa is a cooperative of wine growers founded in Sicily in 1962. One of the most important productive wineries in southern Italy, today it can count on over 2,000 members, 11,000 acres of vineyards scattered in three provinces of Sicily (Trapani, Agrigento and Palermo), 500,000 hl of wine produced every year. The winery bottles different varieties of wine produced with indigenous Sicilian and international vines and is able to ensure high standards and constant quality over time.
Three product lines are offered for sale in the US market:
In conjunction with the presence of the wines in the stores, tastings of the products at the points of sale have been started so that consumers can get to know and appreciate them at their best. The tastings will be carried out throughout 2020 in several states.
