Erin and Shawn Brewer got the idea for RedPin Restaurant and Bowling Lounge from a magazine.
There was a similar place located in Florida and the Brewers liked the idea. After talking to friends and family, the couple was sold on opening the business and everything fit, Erin Brewer said.
“The investors came together and the space we knew was under works, and so it just fell into place,” she said.
The Brewers are majority owners of RedPin, 200 S Oklahoma Ave. in Oklahoma City, but there are a few other silent partners.
Erin Brewer said RedPin is perfect for everyone because it isn’t like any other bowling lounge in Oklahoma.
“Everyone loves to bowl and RedPin is great for people of all ages, she said. So children and grandparents will have a good time here, as well as young folks in the middle. It’s a hip atmosphere and you’ve got the fun of bowling mixed in with all of that.”
RedPin also offers patrons the chance to rent our private areas or the whole venue for any event, Erin Brewer said.
“One of the things I think has really been popular about RedPin is the opportunity to have events here,” she said. “Everything from children’s birthday parties to family reunions, bachelor and bachelorette events, even corporate celebrations, you can do it here and it’s really a great time.”
The restaurant and bowling lounge offers a menu of American classics with a contemporary spin. They serve burgers, chicken sliders, Panini, pizza, sandwiches, wraps and more. Erin Brewer said there is something for everyone. It cost about $10 per person to dine at the restaurant. For the full menu, visit www.bowlredpin.com/ menus.
