Next up: a 120-seat Paradiso coming to DC’s Spring Valley neighborhood near American University this fall.
The Georgetown location is now home to Paradiso Game Room, a space for drinking beer, eating pizza, and playing games like Skee-Ball, Big Buck Hunter, shuffleboard, pinball, and darts. The spot opens today in the restaurant’s basement, which used to house its beer bar, Birreria Paradiso.
Homegrown chain Pizzeria Paradiso is getting more playful as it matures, replacing the subterranean beer bar at its 16-year-old Georgetown location with a new gaming mecca packed with Skee-Ball, pinball, and video games.
Chef/owner Ruth Gresser of Pizzeria Paradiso and her team debuted Paradiso Game Room, located in the downstairs bar of Pizzeria Paradiso Georgetown with nine arcade games, a jukebox, happy hour, an canned beer menu, and the ability to order Pizzeria Paradiso’s classic Neapolitan pizzas.
