GameWorks Headed to Silicon Valley
GameWorks, Inc., a full entertainment and dining experience for millennials, teens and families, announced it is bringing its diverse esports, gaming and entertainment concept to Silicon Valley for the first time. The venue is expected to open during winter 2019-20.
The new bi-level GameWorks Silicon Valley is located at Westfield Oakridge, a bustling San Jose shopping center located at 925 Blossom Hill Road. Westfield Oakridge is the destination of choice for families in the southern San Jose community, offering the best in casual dining, entertainment and essential fashion. Similar to all other GameWorks venues, GameWorks Silicon Valley will include a large, dedicated high-tech esports lounge and world-class arcade. In addition, GameWorks Silicon Valley will feature its branded, chef-imagined restaurant concept, The Works Kitchen at GameWorks, offering a Modern American eclectic menu. This location will also include first-to-market attractions and technologies, debuting exclusively at the new Silicon Valley location at Westfield Oakridge.
“We chose San Jose and the heart of the vibrant Silicon Valley market for our next location, based on a number of key influencing factors, including the considerable number of video game publishers and technology companies in the area as well as the large gamer population. Our extensive expertise in esports, coupled with our deep gaming background, makes GameWorks a preferred entertainment and full-service dining option in the markets we serve, and we believe we will witness the same reception in Westfield Oakridge in San Jose,” says Philip N. Kaplan, chairman and chief executive officer at GameWorks.
“We are excited to welcome GameWorks to our center and our community. We pride ourselves in offering the best in casual dining, shopping, and entertainment for the community, and GameWorks is the perfect addition to our portfolio,” adds Jacob Huerta, Westfield Oakridge Shopping Center manager.
