Good Game is a distinctive dining and entertainment concept developed by Delaware North that offers Topgolf's Swing Suite virtual simulator bays in a fun and interactive atmosphere.
Good Game encompasses 7,500 square feet within The Battery Atlanta and houses seven Topgolf Swing Suite simulator bays, where up to eight people per bay can play, eat and socialize in a comfortable lounge setting.
The venue also features an expansive bar and dining area with a diverse menu featuring elevated bar foods and hand-crafted 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 Battery Atlanta carries the energy and excitement of Truist Park outside of the stadium walls,' said Jerry Jacobs Jr., Co-CEO of Delaware North. 'We're proud to work with our partners, the Braves, to add Good Game to our dining and entertainment options so that fans can come together and have fun all year round.'
'Good Game is absolutely going to crush it,' said Mike Plant, president and CEO of Braves Development Company. 'Our friends at Delaware North have created a fantastic menu, and combined with the Topgolf Swing Suites this will become a destination for friends, colleagues and families to create lasting memories.'
'Five years ago (Truist Park) was a piece of dirt, and it was something that was a vision of ours to create an incredible destination that ... brought people year-round in addition to (the Braves) playing games at Truist Park,' Plant said.
'People have, in droves, come from all over the Southeast and all over the United States, not only to watch our games but to enjoy all the different experiential opportunities we have here. And today, with Good Game ... that just continues,' Plant said.
'It's good to finally see it all come together,' Matt Kimbrough, Delaware North's general manager at Good Game, told a local newspaper. 'You're not only building a restaurant, but you're also adding in all this technology on top of it.'
Kimbrough added that he is excited to introduce families and other Battery visitors to the gaming aspects of Good Game, but he also wants potential customers to know it's a great place to just have a made-from-scratch meal or just have the kids burn off some energy.
The Topgolf Swing Suite bays offer a variety of virtual games - including the popular Topgolf target game, Zombie Dodgeball, Hockey Shots, Baseball Pitching, Carnival Classic and more. The spaces will be available to rent for social and business gatherings, including birthday and bachelorette/bachelor parties, team-building events, corporate meetings and more.
Delaware North, which has been the exclusive food and beverage service provider for the Atlanta Braves and Truist Park since 2016, also operates the Terrapin Taproom, H & F Burger and Coca-Cola Roxy Theater within The Battery Atlanta district.
