This waterfront spot in Rolling Mill Hill has the layout of an MTV Cribs home -- just look at its six vintage bowling lanes, dining room, lounge and outdoor courtyard. While the food is indeed tasty (after all, Catbird Seat veteran Josh Habiger helms the kitchen), people seem to gravitate to Pinewood for the social scene: it's a see-and-be-seen kind of place, which goes hand-in-hand with the pool, bocce ball field, and the strong cocktails.
Pinewood Social is like the Swiss Army knife of entertainment, featuring a fantastic coffee bar, strong cocktail program, multiple food menus that change throughout the day and a really cool retro bowling alley. It’s possible to spend an entire day and night inside the converted trolley shed, but then you’d miss out on all the outdoor fun. Table tennis, bocce, two plunge pools, a mobile kitchen in an Airstream trailer to provide the comestibles and sweeping views of downtown without having to deal with the madness of Lower Broad make Pinewood a favorite secret oasis for locals and clever visitors.
