A brand-new sports bar has made its grand entrance in New York City with a bit of urban golf flair. In addition to a bowling alley, plenty of food options, and a bunch of TVs, “T-Squared Social” also has four Full Swing simulators. This massive 22,000 square-foot arena, covering an entire city block, celebrated its opening on September 20, just in time for the Ryder Cup.
But this isn’t just any ordinary sports bar; it carries with it the endorsement and partnership of two legendary figures – Tiger Woods and Justin Timberlake. Joining forces with 8AM Golf, who own Miura Golf, GolfLogix, Golf Magazine/Golf.com and more, this venture promises to be the epicenter of golf and entertainment in the Big Apple.
A Blend of Golf, Bowling, and Entertainment
Step inside, and you’ll find amenities tailored for the sports enthusiast and the casual party-goer alike.
- Four Full Swing Golf Simulators: Practice your swings or engage in competitive rounds with friends without having to visit a golf course.
- Bowling Alleys: With four lanes available, you can strike a conversation (and pins) with buddies in a fun-filled ambiance.
- Televisions Galore: A staggering 35+ TVs dot the place. And, boasting the title of the largest indoor TV in NYC is their massive 200-inch screen – a visual treat for any major sporting event.
- Dining: The place houses four distinct dining areas, ensuring your gastronomic needs are taken care of while you indulge in the entertainment.
Tiger Woods shared his excitement in a press release. “The idea for T-Squared Social came to us during a round of golf at Albany, our development in The Bahamas. Justin and I thought it would be cool to create a place that combines our favorite things and brings people together to just have a great time.”
Justin Timberlake, no stranger to the golfing community, having participated in PGA Tour’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and holding ownership stakes in golf courses, adds his unique flair and passion for the sport to this venture.
This venue, like others we have seen locally that blend dining and golf simulators, will be a good option for the casual screen golfer who just wants to hit a few balls with friends in a sports bar environment. It will be interesting to see how these concepts will pan out, in comparison to the Five Irons of the world, who provide a more golf-centric vibe with leagues, lessons, and fittings.
