PINSTRIPES TO OPEN NEW LOCATIONS AT WESTFIELD SHOPPING CENTERS IN THE U.S.
For the first time, Pinstripes, Inc. will bring its exciting blend of dining and entertainment to the Westfield U.S. portfolio, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) announced today. The agreement includes leases for two, first-to-market Pinstripes locations in Paramus, NJ at Westfield Garden State Plaza and in Los Angeles at Westfield Topanga.
“We’re so excited about this new partnership with Pinstripes as their unique offering is a perfect fit for the dynamic experiences we are creating at our flagship centers across the country,” says Colin Shaughnessy, executive vice president, U.S. leasing at URW. “As demand once again increases for places to gather—for business and pleasure—we look forward to introducing concepts like Pinstripes to our premier destinations, and providing new opportunities for our guests to shop, dine, work, and play.”
“We’re equally excited to work with the Westfield team to tailor our unique spin on dining and entertainment to two of the most dynamic centers in the U.S.”, states Dale Schwartz, founder and CEO of Pinstripes. “Our iconic venues feed the souls of our guests, young and old, and are yearned for more than ever in this post-COVID environment. We look forward to creating extraordinary, magical connections in these two communities – from the first strike, to the first bite, to the first kiss, to the first laugh – that bring out the best in everyone.”
When it opens in late 2022 at Westfield Garden State Plaza, guests will be able to enjoy made-from-scratch dining, face-to-face gaming, and the signature service Pinstripes is known for. Pinstripes will join the center’s best-in-class dining and entertainment line-up, which includes Arena Stem, a retail edutainment concept; AMC, one of the most successful AMC theaters in the country; and restaurants including Capital Grille, California Pizza Kitchen, and Grande Luxe Café, among others.
At Westfield Topanga, Pinstripes will be a part of the 180,000 square foot expansion URW announced in 2019 and which is currently under construction. The expansion includes demolition of a former department store building at the center into a new, vibrant district at the corner of Victory and Topanga Canyon Boulevard that will feature a chef-driven food hall; sleek lounges and cocktail bars; unique interior and exterior boutiques; best-in-class entertainment including an AMC Theater and recreational activities; and landscaped indoor and outdoor public spaces and plazas. Pinstripes is expected to open with the expansion in 2022. For more information, please visit: https://www.westfield.com/topanga/newdistrict
