The Kitchen is set to open in mid-Missouri in spring 2022. 

There's even more fun to be had in Columbia, Missouri, starting next spring.

According to a press release, The Kitchen Grill & Games will open in the Discovery Park development near the Discovery Park U.S. 63 exit in spring 2022. The bar and restaurant will not only offer food and drinks, but it will also feature six indoor pickleball courts, four outdoor pickleball courts, an outdoor ice skating rink and a large yard for lawn games such as cornhole and shuffleboard.

“More and more people don’t want to simply plop down for several hours at a bar or restaurant,” said Jack Cardetti, spokesperson for The Kitchen, in the release. “They want a place where they can be active and enjoy the outdoors. At The Kitchen, we look forward to being a destination for families and friends that want great food, drink and service, but in a relaxed, fun environment that promotes an active lifestyle.”

The Kitchen is meant to resemble eat-and-play experiences like Topgolf, but it will be the first facility of its kind in mid-Missouri.
