The Rec Room At Square One

Source: The Rec Room

What’s all the hustle and bustle about you ask?! The Rec Room is the newest addition to the entertainment scene in the Square One Area.

The Rec Room opened its doors in March 2019, and sprawls over 2 floors and covers over 44,000 square feet of space and can accommodate up to 1,400 guests. The entertainment complex is a chain that belongs to giant Cineplex and has multiple locations across Canada.

The Layout

The Rec Room features 2 floors. The lower floor consists of 4 lanes for bowling, 10,000 square feet of attractions in the area called “The Yard”, a restaurant called “The Shed” and your private dining spaces – The Library, The Hall and The Garage 2.

The Upper floor features, 3 VR experiences in “The VOID”, the Ax-Throwing Room, restaurant THREE10, a lounge, The Garage 1 as your private dining space.

The Rec Room offers 90 amusement games, along with pool tables, ping pong tables and 95-plus screens for your entertainment. The Bar serves 32 draught beers, including some of the finest local craft beer.

Your winnings can be cashed in at the Trophy Case, where you can redeem your credits for items such as board games.

The Rec Room Is Just Another Dave & Buster’s

It does seem that way, does it not? Well, asides that Dave & Buster’s is further from Square One Mall, and doesn’t offer Axe-Throwing, live entertainment or 2 amazing restaurants, or ping pongs or nearly as much space and TV screens; however, it does offer an arcade, and VR and a great Dance Revolution Game.

Yes, although both appear to be fairly similar, The Rec Room has a lot more to offer, but it does not mean that Dave & Buster’s is not a great hang out spot when you want it to be a little less hectic and when you just want an arcade type of night.

What Does This Mean For Downtown Mississauga?
