The Albatross, a pub that features golf simulators, opens to customers in downtown Cary Friday.

Why it matters: It's the latest in a string of new businesses that have targeted fast-growing downtown Cary, where several new buildings and apartments are under construction, and a new park recently opened.

Driving the news: The Albatross, located at 140 E. Chatham St., opens officially to the public on Friday and booking for their golf simulators goes live today, according to the pub's Instagram.

  • The Albatross — whose name is a reference to scoring three strokes under par on one hold — is co-owned by Sean Ryan and Paul Wasmund, a former brewer at nearby Bond Brothers Beer Co.

  • The pub hopes to host tournaments as well.
  • The Albatross will have a full-service bar as well as a kitchen serving smashburgers, hot dogs, and, on the weekend, breakfast burritos.

Hours: Monday-Friday, 11am-11pm

  • Saturday and Sunday, 9am-11pm
