The Rim is adding Pinstack, a bowling alley and entertainment destination, to its growing list of businesses.

Context: The Northwest Side, anchored by the Rim and the Shops at La Cantera, is a dynamic area of the city undergoing explosive growth that has attracted interest from outside businesses.

  • Pinstack's Rim plans come on the heels of a busy 2022, which saw the arrival of Austin-based Kerbey Lane Cafe and Kung Fu Saloon and Parry's Pizzeria, a Colorado chain.
  • The Rock, the Spurs' new practice facility, also broke ground in the area in late 2021 and is expected to open this summer.

Zoom out: Entertainment Properties Group, a Dallas-based company, operates Pinstack locations in the DFW Metroplex, Austin, Round Rock, Pflugerville and San Antonio.

Details: According to project filings with Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, the city's second Pinstack will be located at 19238 Interstate 10 — within five miles of other entertainment destinations like Andretti, Top Golf and Chicken N Pickle.

  • The first location opened near North Star Mall in February.
  • At 53,360 square feet, the new Pinstack will be slightly larger than the current location, which is 52,290 square feet, according to records.
  • Pinstack's San Antonio offerings include bowling, laser tag, bumper cars, a high ropes course, rock climbing, dining and a bar.
  • An opening date for the $9.5 million project has not been set.

What they're saying: President and CEO Mark Moore tells Axios the San Antonio expansion is part of a larger U.S. expansion.

  • Moore says he "couldn't be happier" with the local reception.
  • "The San Antonio community welcomed our Team warmly and has embraced the Pinstack experience. We are equally excited about opening a 2nd San Antonio location in the North Rim area with the exceptional draw for shopping, entertainment and dining enthusiasts," he says.
