Delaware North formally opened The Turn, its new dining and entertainment destination created in partnership with Topgolf Swing Suite, on Thursday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration in Titletown, the entertainment district outside of Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisc.
Matthew Wagner, senior vice president of corporate development for Delaware North, joined Mark Murphy, president and CEO of the Green Bay Packers, and operations leaders from Delaware North Sportservice in Green Bay to officially open the restaurant, which had its soft open to the public at the end of August.
“At Delaware North, our mission is to always reimagine the guest experience, and we’ve done just that with The Turn,” Wagner said during the ceremony. “In developing the concept, we aimed to combine culinary excellence with leading-edge technology to deliver an unforgettable experience for our guests.”
In addition to remarks from Wagner and Murphy, the grand-opening event included food samples and tours of the Swing Suite bays for Packers employees and the local media.
The Turn encompasses 11,000 square feet within Titletown and will house seven Topgolf Swing Suite simulator bays, where up to eight people per bay can play, eat and socialize in a comfortable lounge setting.
The restaurant also features an expansive bar and dining area with a diverse menu featuring elevated bar foods and handcrafted dishes made from fresh, regional ingredients. The bar features custom cocktails and an array of bottled and draft beers, including rotating seasonal options and local brews.
The Turn is the first of three planned concepts Delaware North has developed with the Topgolf Swing Suite technology. Good Game is a second full-service restaurant with seven Swing Suite bays and is scheduled to open in The Battery Atlanta later this year. Three Swing Suite bays will also be a part of Banners Kitchen & Tap, a restaurant developed by Delaware North’s Patina Restaurant Group for The Hub on Causeway in Boston.
