Myrtle Beach, SC
Who said malls are only for shopping?
This fall, a new family entertainment complex will open at the Coastal Grand Mall in Myrtle Beach, bringing a new kind of experience to the growing mall.
The 52,500-square-foot Stars and Strikes Getaway-n-Play will offer “high-tech” bowling, an arcade, a multi-story laser tag field and ax throwing. And of course, for parents (or other adults) who need a break from all the fun, there will be a large bar with TVs showing the latest sports.
Stars and Strikes will also feature a full restaurant with a menu ranging from sandwiches to specialty pizzas.
The company announced the new location in a press release earlier this month.
This is the 16th location for the Georgia-based business and the third in South Carolina. The other two in the Palmetto State are in Irmo, near Columbia, and Summerville, near Charleston.
“We recognize the demand for our unique brand of entertainment from both Myrtle Beach residents and tourists.” Stars and Strikes co-founder Chris Albano said in a press release. “With these families in mind, we are excited to bring a quality brand of family-focused entertainment to the Myrtle Beach area that guests of all ages can enjoy.”
The business will also have a “luxury corporate event space” in a lounge with VIP bowling alleys and a private bar, according to the release. This space can accommodate more than 100 guests.
Stars and Strikes said in a press release that it plans to invest more than $9 million to create the entertainment complex, including the creation of more than 150 jobs that it plans to fill primarily with existing local workers. Anyone interested in a job can email Shannon Smothers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stars and Strikes Getaway-n-Play will be located at 2000 Coastal Grand Circle. The company has not yet announced an opening date, only that it will welcome visitors this fall.
