GUILDERLAND Crossgates Mall is upping its entertainment game. Less than a year after the region’s first-ever Dave & Buster’s opened inside 30,000 square feet of space at the mall, a restaurant and entertainment company has announced its coming to the mall this fall.
Latitude 360 will open a casual dining restaurant and entertainment venue featuring 20 bowling lanes inside 50,000 square feet on the lower level of the mall by Pandora. The company formerly known as Latitude Global recently underwent a corporate rebranding in which it announced it would open five new state-of-the-art locations over the next two years in addition to its existing three in Jacksonville, Fla., Pittsburgh and Indianapolis.
“We are proud to welcome Latitude 360 to Crossgates Mall,” said General Manager Joseph Castaldo in a news release. “This premier bowling and night-life establishment will significantly add to the entertainment experience at Crossgates Mall and the Capital Region. Our shoppers continually ask us to bring only the best and most exciting retailers to Crossgates Mall, and we’ve accomplished that again with Latitude 360. This addition to the center further solidifies the mall’s position as the dominant shopping center in the region.”
Latitude 360 venues include a casual dining restaurant called 360 Grille & Bar, an upscale bowling operation, an interactive game room, a dine-in digital theater, cigar lounge, and a stage to host stand-up comedians and other performers.
The main concept behind Latitude 360 is to satisfy the interests of a family or group of friends who want to spend time together, according to the release. Its venues are upscale and designed to appeal to the occasional bowler, but also companies who want to form teams and leagues.
