Where Good Food and Fun Come Together
When bringing the kids on a family outing for some bowling, mini golf or laser tag, you can’t ignore the 21+ upstairs of HeyDay Entertainment. Revolutions, the bar plus bowling alley, pool hall and arcade, features specialty cocktails and a full menu to boot.
Starters, platters, salads, a Southwestern section, burgers, sandwiches and a kids’ menu comprise the menu—so many options, it was hard to know where to start!
All food is 100 percent fresh; all fruit for the bar is chopped and squeezed every morning as a daily duty for the servers, who are astonishingly well trained in a corporate environment.
We began our dining excursion with a particularly citric HeyDay Manhattan, the taste of whiskey enveloped by the stark presence of orange bitters and a twist. Next was the HeyDay Vodka Gimlet, which was also astonishingly sweet and citric at once.
The fried green beans were crunchy and sweet dipped in the “HD Ranch”, which is Revolutions’ take on sweet barbecue ranch dressing. It complemented the taste with a subtle spice.
The steak tacos were surprisingly traditional, placed on corn tortillas and drizzled with creamy sour cream sauce. Topped with cilantro, fresh tomatoes and onions, it was a trip farther south for this Southerner.
In a hiatus from the meal, the bartender attested for Revolutions’ availability of flights at the bar. Their flights range from scotch, whiskey, red wines, white wines and finally blush wines, for their rosés.
The Greek Pizza arrived, decorative with the pale pastels of olives, feta cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. All ingredients were fresh as can be, and there was enough left over for the following day’s lunch. A happy stomach makes a happy customer!
For a show, the highly trained bartender whipped us up a Pisco Sour—their primary egg white-infused cocktail. Reminiscent of a pie with meringue topping, it was one for the books—and my first time trying egg whites!
Jared’s Gin Rickey, so named after the bar manager and creator of the specialty cocktail menu, was a charmingly delightful take on the modern mojito. But the whopper of all Revolutions cocktails was the rocks glass-sized Where’s The Beach. Strawberries, pineapples, coconut, sugary simple syrup and Malibu rum come together to make an idyllic drink, one that even the lightest drinker can enjoy.
However, their most popular drink is the Gutterball. Bright green, shaken and fruity, it’s one that everyone who enjoys a good cocktail should try.
In my tour of the upstairs bar, Revolutions itself, I was taken by the full neon bowling alley, the pool table and lounge, and of course, the traditional game of PacMan. An adult setting for anyone who enjoys a good time, Revolutions can satisfy your appetite and answer your entertainment desires.
