Topgolf entertainment complex is opening on the Westside this Friday, August 14, with seven competitive games, 250 high-definition TVs, three bars, and a full-service restaurant. Located at 1600 Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard, the three-story, 65,000-square foot space features a rooftop terrace complete with fire pits and a private event space.
Food and drinks will be similar to Topgolf Alpharetta—the usual bar offerings with a Tex-Mex twist—but executive chef Joseph Lillo will eventually put his own spin on the menu. For now, the focus is on top-sellers like chicken and waffle sliders, smoked brisket nachos, and Mushi—a cross between sushi and a burrito with smoked chicken, drunken beans, cheddar cheese, and sushi rice, wrapped in a jalapeño tortilla sliced like a California roll.
“We’re a from-scratch kitchen,” says chef Jason Stitham, who presides over the Atlanta, Alpharetta, Houston, Tampa, and Virginia Beach locations. “The menu is completely chef driven. We focus on items that are easy to execute, but we don’t want to cut corners—we make sure the recipes are done right.”
At the bar, patrons can order cocktails like the Tipsy Palmer and the Melon Mulligan, as well as beer and wine. On weekends, there’s a Bloody Mary bar at brunch, complete with toppings like pickled okra, bacon, and at least five hot sauces.
