The owners of Rosati’s Pizza in Anthem said today they’ve closed a deal to take over the Replay Sports Grill next door, plus a smaller vacant space next to Replay, and create a whole new entertainment center unlike anything in town.
The vision, according to co-owner Bryon Elsberry: six bowling lanes, 25 arcades, “and the second virtual reality room in Arizona … where you actually walk into the room and you are the game.” The two restaurants and their adjoining patios will all become one, Elsberry told North Phoenix News this evening. “Liquor and food will go both places.”
Replay was closed this evening, as Elsberry and his Rosati’s team were in the patio behind Replay celebrating their move. A message on the Replay Facebook page confirmed the acquisition.
“It’s done,” Elsberry said, adding that Anthem Community Council signed off on the deal.
It is not yet known when the new facility will open.
