For a vacation spot where you’re bound to discover something new, miles away from the ordinary, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is the perfect place for you. Here, guests from all backgrounds and ways of life come together to experience the ultimate Michigan resort. Golf among the spectacular natural beauty of the Lower Peninsula, rejuvenate with a spa treatment deemed as one of the best in the country, or win big with Vegas-style gaming at Turtle Creek Casino Hotel just minutes away and accessible via a Grand Traverse Resort & Casinos shuttle. Though that just scratches the surface of what they have to offer, guests have a new reason to come; the recent opening of their new game center and restaurant, The Den.
The Den provides an unparalleled entertainment experience. Test your wit within the confines of the multi-chamber escape room in the setting of the Egyptian desert, try your aim in the lanes of Traverse City’s first axe-throwing range, capture the nostalgia (in the comfort of your own shoes) at their Boutique Bowling alley, load up your game card with credits to play in the arcade, or jump into a new world with the cutting edge virtual reality system. Plus, The Den Bar is an upscale pub featuring custom cocktails, local beers, and more!
The Den is perfectly situated for fun year-round and odds are you will always have something to do. General Manager of Grand Traverse Resort and Spa Matthew Bryant wanted to forge something familiar, saying, “The vision I had when we were creating The Den was my childhood basement, I wanted it to be a fun environment where people felt comfortable at home.”
Guests can also rent out The Den for private group events. Whether it be for a birthday party, reunion, or a work event, you’ll have access to all of the activities. Bryant continues, “We wanted to create a team-building outlet that can be utilized by companies, families, and friend groups. Our new bowling, axe-throwing, and escape room help promote competition and teamwork.”
Though there is much to see and do on your next trip to Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, make sure to include The Den in your plans. This one-stop-shop entertainment venue is hard to come by anywhere else in Northern Michigan. With this unique space providing something for everyone, you might need to make a few return trips to see it all.
