Drive Shack today announced it will bring Puttery, its mini-golf entertainment experience, to Washington, D.C.’s Penn Quarter entertainment destination. Located near the center of Penn Quarter, Drive Shack Puttery will transform approximately 20,000 square feet at 800 F Street, a location that until recently was the original home of the city’s iconic International Spy Museum.
Drive Shack the Penn Quarter location will feature an upscale food and beverage menu, showcasing dishes and craft cocktails specially curated by Puttery’s chefs and craft-spirits specialists. With an adult-focused and modern spin on the classic game of mini-golf, Drive Shack said the Penn Quarter location will be anchored by multiple bars, lounges and rotating DJs. As for golf, the company said it will feature “auto-scoring’’ technology and thematic design elements in each of its three, nine-hole golf courses.
“Puttery will be highly complementary to Penn Quarter’s already strong lineup of existing dining and entertainment options, offering a unique experience for our guests,’’ said Drive Shack President and Chief Executive Officer, Hana Khouri. “We believe Penn Quarter will be a choice destination and the Puttery concept will resonate with the local Washington D.C. social-seekers. We look forward to bringing Puttery to a new market and setting the tone for our strategic and aggressive growth ahead.”
The Penn Quarter location brings the total number of new Puttery venues announced to three, including both Dallas and Charlotte, North Carolina, each of which are expected to open later this summer. Khouri said Drive Shack plans to open or nearly complete a total of seven new Puttery venues by the end of 2021.
