Connecting People & Building Community

we are on a mission to

Value Time
Create Moments that Earn Memories
Encourage Evolving Exploration
Share In Prosperity with our Team and Community

Your 3rd Spot is an innovative, vibe-forward social dining experience dedicated to connecting people and building community through the merging of technology and hospitality. A collection of 70+ social games, upscale small plates dining, and craft beverages are paired with an “all-seasons” design to create an engaging, comfortable, sociable environment.

The concept was founded by a group of passionate hospitality industry leaders that are unified in the belief that gathering over great food, drink and fun is an essential part of the human experience. Our diverse team has over 200 years in the dining and entertainment space with a track record for successfully building brands.

We believe that providing autonomy, mastery, and purpose is the key to building a motivated team who can, in turn, deliver incredible experiences to our guests.

It always seems impossible until it’s not.
