Just two days after Westfield Montgomery Mall announced celebrity chef José Andrés was opening a restaurant there this summer, the retail center is further increasing its competitiveness with Tysons Corner and nearby Pike & Rose. A source tells me that upscale bowling, dining and entertainment brand Lucky Strike will open Lucky Strike Social: Gastropub and Bowling Suites in the mall this summer.
Sure to increase and retain customer traffic at the mall for longer periods, Lucky Strike will be located in the former movie theater space on Level 1.
Just as ArcLight Cinemas at the mall competes with iPic at Pike and Rose, Westfield will now have an upscale bowling experience to compete with Pinstripes, expected to open in 2017 at the nearby Federal Realty development.
Stay tuned for further details.
