VENTURA COUNTY, Sep. 20, 2012 — Discovery Venues is pleased to announce it will be opening its first location in the beautiful seaside city of Ventura this coming January. With city approvals in place, Discovery is now proceeding with the restoration and property improvements for its future home at 1888 E. Thompson Blvd.
Bowling won’t be a new addition to the neighborhood though, as 1888 E. Thompson Blvd. has been Ventura’s classic bowling destination for the past 55 years where Poinsettia Bowl and Ventura Bowling Center have operated since 1957.
“I’m excited for this project. There isn’t anything like it in the entire county, and I can’t wait for the beautification and revitalization it will bring to Thompson Blvd. This is exactly what we need here in Midtown,” said Michael Gourley, business and property owner of Gourley’s Allstate Insurance on Thompson Blvd.
The City of Ventura’s council-elected Design Review Committee has formally approved Discovery’s exterior design and property improvements. Simplistic and repurposing best describe the theme throughout the re-development of the California-lifestyle bowling and restaurant project.
“Discovery is an entertainment destination offering a complete social experience with bowling, cocktails & farm-to-table cuisine. Discovery creates California-lifestyle experiences for a socially-conscious, youthful culture… and that youthful culture represents a positive, inner-vitality… an infectious desire to have fun!” said Founder and CEO, Jeremy Pemberton.
Discovery will feature 9 bowling lanes, billiards, shuffleboard, comfortable lounge seating, giant projection screens running sports and the best surf videos (ever), local artwork, a horse-shoe bar utilizing reclaimed wood from old lanes, a locally-sourced menu, local & regional micro-brews, a private VIP room, VIP lanes and 160 capacity banquet room.
Discovery is also host to the largest, most fun private party and event space in Ventura County. Discovery’s entire operations, from floor-plan to menu, has been designed to accommodate events for non-profits, community organizations, and the county’s prominent business firms from 4 to 400 for private banquet service or complete buy-outs .
“We can’t wait to let people know about our Group & Corporate Private Party products! Ventura County lacks a fun, exciting venue for private parties and events. Party planners will be impressed with what we have to offer,” said Jeremy Pemberton.
Press tours available beginning Nov 4th for interior demolition.
