Exciting news for Denver: A new restaurant and bar with pickleball courts is on its way!

Pickleball is all the rage these days, and here is more proof… A new complex dedicated to the sport is coming to Denver complete with its own bar and restaurant.

Enter Camp Pickle. Last year, it was announced that the concept, which is inspired by 1940s-era camp culture, will open next to the Top Golf in Centennial in 2024. It comes from the same folks that started Punch Bowl Social who have also partnered with Vita Development Group to open a second Camp Pickle in 2025 as part of a 41-acre development project that recently broke ground in Globeville.

Each Camp Pickle location will have approximately fifteen pickleball courts, but will also offer other entertainment options, like duckpin bowling and private karaoke rooms. What really sets it apart from other pickleball facilities, though, is the food-and-drink program. There will be a scratch kitchen specializing in what Thompson describes as “smoke-influenced Mexican and camp cooking.” There will also be forty craft beers on tap, sixteen higher-end wines by the glass and ten craft cocktails, all served from mirrored, self-pour draft walls.
