Pinstripes, a chain of dining and entertainment venues that combine Italian/American cuisine and wine with full-service bowling lanes and bocce courts, is planning to open inside Southpoint mall.

Based in Northbrook, Illinois, Pinstripes features event space for private parties, weekend live music, and children’s play dates, as well as hosting bowling and bocce clubs and leagues. Its menu features pasta, pizza, salads, and sandwiches.

In partnership with Brookfield Properties, Pinstripes plans to open in Durham, North Carolina and in Reston, Virginia.

“Our retail properties are a hub for daily life, and today’s consumer expects a great experience that features dining, entertainment and celebrates community,” said Sandeep Mathrani, CEO of Brookfield Properties and vice chairman of Brookfield Property Group. “This type of tenant offering has grown throughout our portfolio in recent years, and our partnership with Pinstripes is a natural collaboration that represents evolution in our industry.”

“We are excited to work with Sandeep and his team to further transform the retail experience and offer our guests a magical venue to connect with each other,” said Pinstripes Founder/CEO Dale Schwartz. “This partnership will further enable Pinstripes to accelerate its expansion plans of opening over 100 locations throughout the U.S. and overseas over the next several years.”
