You want more? Pete’s newest concept, PLAY2, made its debut at the South Philly establishment in 2009. PLAY2 is the world’s first interactive sports bar to where you don’t just watch sports on TV, but that you become the sport.

There are 18 amusement pod entertainment centers/suites (4 to 20 people each) stacked 2 high that create a mezzanine, allowing customers to completely create their own interactive entertainment experience. You can simply watch the game you want on your 60″ HDTV or you can get involved. How about play golf with Tiger Woods. Score in a three-point shoot out. Bowl a strike. Beat Mario in a race. You can compete with your friends or take it to another level by competing against other pods, as onlookers watch your fun live via video screens networked throughout.
