Topgolf has built 52 venues where more than 17 million people a year use their driving ranges and other high-end entertainment. And in December, the company announced that it will create esports lounges at six of its outposts in partnership with TV brand TCL. It’s a big bet that such venues will be the next growth opportunity in the larger esports economy.
According to VB Online, the company launched its first lounge at CES 2019, the big tech trade show in Las Vegas earlier this month, at its Topgolf Las Vegas location. The idea is to give gamers a place to come to watch esports entertainment in a lounge with wall-to-wall monitors, comfortable seating, and chef-driven food and beverages.
