Plymouth’s Rock Elm Tavern Expands To Add ‘Experiential Dining’
A popular Plymouth restaurant is now offering customers a chance to eat, drink and play a few games all under the same roof.
“We’ve absolutely got something for everybody,” said Julian Ramirez, a business partner with Plymouth’s Rock Elm Tavern. “There’s 14 different games on here. We’ve got everything from zombie dodgeball and carnival games to throwing passes to wide receivers, throwing fast pitch that clocks your speed.”
Plymouth’s Rock Elm Tavern is now getting into the business of “experiential dining.” The owners acquired a vacant space next door to the restaurant and added three sports simulators where customers can play a variety of different games. They’re calling the space “The Clubhouse.”
The owners say this expansion underscores the importance of restaurants needing to evolve after the pandemic.
“You start to look around at what people are doing, pickleball and food, and throwing axes and food, and really, I think the experiential dining is something that has some merit and I think it’s going to continue,” said Troy Reding, Rock Elm Tavern’s owner. “You know, people want to go out for an experience and an extended amount of time, and this is the way to do it.”
Rock Elm Tavern will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, Jan. 26 at 2 p.m. and an open house for its new space on Feb. 4 from 12 to 4 p.m.
To make a reservation for one of the sports simulators, you can do so on the Rock Elm Tavern website.
