Longmont Times Call

An Evergreen company is bringing an entertainment center that may include a bowling alley, arcade, sports bar and music venue to Longmont.

The Wild Game has leased more than 28,289 square feet of Longmont retail space at 2251 Ken Pratt Blvd., site of the former Office Depot that closed in May 2015.

Wild Game officials could not be reached for comment.

Niwot-based Burden Incorporated owns the building. President Cotton Burden said he was looking to having a “parking lot full of cars.”

“It’s something Longmont doesn’t have that’s a great use of the space,” Burden said. “There’s just a lot of things for a lot of people, and creating a mezzanine levels that looks out to Longs Peak and the Continental Divide is perfect.”

Burden said he and Wild Game owners were hoping the venue would open by the fall. The retail lease in Longmont, signed in January, has a 10-year term.

The Evergreen location has bowling lanes, a sports bar and restaurant, an arcade and live music and event spaces, according to the company’s website.

“One of the things that connected me to the Wild Game guys is what they’ve done up in Evergreen,” Burden said. “Who would think about putting in a 20,000-square-foot family restaurant and entertainment center in Evergreen? These guys did and they made it work. I like the fact they were able to do that in a small market.”

“I’d much rather have one of these guys in there rather than one of the nationals (like) Dave & Busters.”
