Alright Pittsburgh, the coolest concept yet has arrived in the Strip District and it is one you’re definitely going to want to check out. Puttery, the mini golf and bar experience, is ready for you to visit! Open daily for corporate team bonding, date nights, or a squad night out, Puttery is the place to go for anyone over the age of 21. We had the opportunity to preview their multilevel space in the Strip before their opening this past weekend and WOW. Let’s hit you with the deets.

By combining the childhood favorite putt-putt with the adult favorite bar scene, Puttery provides a one-of-a-kind experience. With 3 themed mini golf courses and 2 themed drinks per course, the fun never stops! Upon entry to Puttery, you’ll notice the swanky vibes. From the patterned walls to the chic light fixtures and furnishings, every piece of this space is thoughtfully laid out. The first-floor bar area is full of high tops perfect for grabbing a drink before your reservation or a bite after your round. 

The first-floor and second-floor bars have their own featured cocktails as well as brews, wine & non-alcoholic beverages. One local brew available is the East End Brewing Hefeweizen! Other bottled and draft beers are available as well. For the bar cocktails, our 2 favorites are the Tasty Green and the BBQ on a Saturday Night. The Tasty Green is a refreshing vodka-based cocktail with lime, cucumber, and basil, and the BBQ on a Saturday Night is a bourbon-based drink with honey, smoked peach, lemon, and Angostura bitters. Sip on either of those to kick off or cap off your putt-putt session! 

Now for the actual mini golfing. As we mentioned there are 3 themed courses throughout Puttery. These courses are the Lodge, the Library, and the Garage. Each of these courses is 9 holes full of twists, turns, photo ops, and exclusive drinks. That’s right – EXCLUSIVE drinks. Each of the 3 courses has 2 signature drinks served solely inside each course. The Lodge for example features a very appropriate iced Irish coffee with housemade sweet foam to top it off. You’ll have to try the courses yourself to find out more about the featured cocktails in the Library and the Garage!  

Along with the game and the cocktails, you’ll find the perfect photo opportunities in each course. Pose with the vintage car in the Garage, on the ski lift in the Lodge, or looking through the bookshelves in the Library. Trust us when we say there are plenty of instagrammable moments throughout Puttery.

When it’s time the tee off, the way the putt-putt tee times work is you can either make a reservation online or walk in and schedule a tee time at the welcome desk. It is $18 per person, per round. Forget silly paper scorecards! At Puttery, touchscreens are located throughout each course at the start of each hole for scorekeeping. As you move through each course, the scoreboard will follow your squad around. If you’re some of the best golfers on the course, you might make it to the daily leaderboard displayed in that course! 

Each tee time is good for up to 4 people. What if your party is bigger than that? No worries! The way reservations at Puttery work is by reserving an available one-and-a-half-hour slot, showing up 15 minutes prior to the reservation, letting the staff know your party size, and selecting a tee time within that window! Groups of 4 or fewer tee off every 5 minutes. This is when the drinks and appetizers in the upper and lower bars shine. Currently, Puttery’s appetizer menu includes shareables like their veggie potstickers, beef sliders, and house cut fries. They also have some salads and mini desserts!

If your group is looking to celebrate something special, consider hosting a private event at Puttery! They have a great space for corporate events, birthday celebrations, and more. With several event packages, Puttery staff will help you find the perfect fit for your event. Whether you need a fully private space, a lounge, or just a few tables, they are happy to accommodate you! You can even order bottle service to your lounge or table for a special treat while enjoying the atmosphere from your reserved space. 

We could talk all day about this INCREDIBLE new spot in Pittsburgh, but we will leave it at that. Now gather your crew and pick a date and time to head to Puttery to try out their fun mini golf courses, sip tasty featured cocktails, and soak in the swanky vibes!
