Georgetown’s entertainment options just got more diverse with the debut of Pinstripes on Friday. The 34,000-square-foot venue in the Shops at Georgetown Park, the sixth location of the Midwestern chain, offers 14 bowling lanes, six bocce courts, live entertainment, a full restaurant, an outdoor patio, and weekend brunch.

The large menu leans Italian, with dishes such as house-made ravioli and mozzarella bruschetta, as well as selections for kids and weekend brunch. Photograph courtesy of Pinstripes.

When it comes to eating, think beyond the typical alley offerings of beer pitchers and fries. The DC Pinstripes sells a selection of local brews and has an on-site wine cellar. Lunch and dinner menus lean American and Italian, with a lineup of small plates (bruschetta, crabcakes), plus flatbreads, pastas, and entrĂ©es such as chicken Parmesan and grilled ribs; there’s also a kids’ menu. When you’re not busy eating or bowling, head to an outdoor patio overlooking the canal for cocktails; in winter you’ll find an outdoor fireplace and blankets to stay warm. Sunday brunch starts February 16, and includes a buffet of made-to-order omelets, prime rib, and desserts.

Guests can book bowling lanes, bocce courts, and tables in the bistro in advance, though some will be reserved for walk-ins. Another perk for those coming into Georgetown: underground parking.

Pinstripes. 3222 M St., NW (entrance located on Wisconsin Ave.); 202-625-6500.
