Sports & Social to Open First Location in DMV Area

Dining, entertainment, sports viewing and social concept Sports & Social has announced its newest location will open on September 9 at Pike & Rose, a mixed-use, transit-oriented neighborhood in North Bethesda, MD.

Earlier this year, Sports & Social opened its first Maryland location at Live! Casino & Hotel Maryland. Both Maryland locations were designed by ICRAVE, an internationally acclaimed award-winning strategy, design and development firm. Sports & Social Bethesda will offer its guests an elevated food and beverage experience including made-from-scratch game-day favorites, curated cocktails and a beer selection that includes local favorites from Flying Dog Brewery, Denizens Brewing Co., Silver Branch Brewing Company and 7 Locks Brewing. The 7,692 square-foot venue features a dog-friendly exterior patio. Sports & Social Bethesda is located at 11800 Grand Park Ave.

“Federal is always searching for superior new-to-market brands and concepts for its properties and we welcome Sports & Social to the Pike & Rose neighborhood,” said Stuart Biel, senior vice president of leasing at Federal, the developer of Pike & Rose. “Sports & Social brings a unique sports viewing, gaming and entertainment experience to Montgomery County and the greater DC-metro region, contributing to the vibrant dining and entertainment mix in North Bethesda.”
