New entertainment venue opening in Scott’s Addition

Slingshot Social coming to Scott's Addition

RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Once a bustling industrial area, Scott’s Addition is now one of Richmond’s fastest-growing neighborhoods.

Over the years, it has added several entertainment venues and now there’s another new option called Slingshot Social Game Club.

The new activity-based venue is created by the owners of Circuit Arcade Bar.

“Just kind of wanted to have the same playful feel the same playful environment but make it social-based,” said Edmonds. “We want to be apart of this community we want to be apart of the neighborhood because it’s still growing it’s still booming we only have more to add to it."

The social club adds to dozens of breweries and restaurants in the area, making it the seventh entertainment option to come to Scott’s Addition.

“I think it just shows you Scott’s addition is still growing how much more room it is for locations like this,” said Edmonds.

The 10,000 square foot social Game Club focuses on Skeeball, Bocce Ball and Duckpin Bowling but with a twist.

For skeeball, there are four courts which have longer lanes and bigger balls than the traditional arcade version.

The eight lanes of duckpin are played faster than your traditional version and the six bocce courts have automatic scoring displayed in a digital scoreboard so there’s no need to manually input your score.
