University Heights' Park & Rec Centers Around Games, Cocktails

A cocktail consulting powerhouse will be behind the drinks.

More details have emerged about the concept headed to the former Bourbon Street location (4612 Park Blvd.) that Eater first reported would be called Park & Rec.

The redesign of the 5,000-square-foot property, spearheaded by Waypoint Public owner John Pani, will be ready by May and will reportedly be made up of three stand-alone cocktail "bungalows" surrounding a large courtyard. As would be expected considering its name, Park & Rec will feature outdoor games, including ping pong and shuffle board, plus live entertainment and music. 

Enlisted to curate a classic cocktail program is the newly-formed Revelry Cocktail Co., comprised of two high-profile local bartenders, Anthony Schmidt (Fairweather, Rare Form, Noble Experiment) and Trevor Easter (Noble Experiment, Rickhouse, Bourbon & Branch, Heaven’s Dog).

Pani also holds the lease for the adjacent 3,500-square-foot space that was once Lei Lounge; though a plan hasn't been solidified for that site, it will include a food component.
