High-tech sports bar with walls of taps opens at buzzy Lewisville mall
A new sports bar with a lot of extras is opening in Lewisville. Called iCompete, it features augmented reality versions of "sports" including simulated golf, baseball, digitized darts, axe-throwing, and immersive-tech billiards.
According to a release, it'll open in February at Lewisville's Music City Mall, at 2405 S. Stemmons Fwy. #200.
The release describes iCompete as a hybrid sporting venue and sports bar with entertainment, food, and private functions, including corporate and charity events.
There are two bars: a main bar featuring a 20-foot LED TV, and a mixology bar, with a wall of 40 taps where you can pour your own beer and wine.
- 8 augmented reality golf simulators
- 6 batting cage simulators
- 10 digitized dart boards
- 8 axe-throwing lanes
- 2 immersive tech pool tables
- 2 cocktail bars
There's also a food menu, created by John Franke, former corporate chef for FrontBurner (Haywire, Velvet Taco, Whiskey Cake, Mexican Sugar). iCompeteX's executive chef is Phil Hoy.
It's a global menu dubbed "WTF", which stands for Wings, Tacos, & Flatbreads, featuring tacos, flatbreads, wings, and sushi.
iCompete was founded by Bill Choung, a PGA Tour instructor and VR whiz who also founded CompuGolf Center in Carrollton, which offers lessons and training for golfers.
Grand opening weekend will begin on Friday, February 11.
