UK-based Bounce Leisure Ltd successfully launched a new social entertainment concept in London, blending ping pong, food and drinks in one place. When owners made plans to enter the US market, they identified an ideal first stateside location in Chicago, specifically, within the OneEleven Wacker building. DMA helped manage the transformation of space for the new AceBounce. The DMA team initially served as the landlord’s project manager and was later tapped by Bounce Leisure to take over tenant project management and to assist with the national rollout of the concept.
Situated at the corner of Clark Street and Wacker Drive in Chicago, the three-level, mostly subterranean venue occupies 14,749 square feet within a new luxury apartment building. AceBounce can hold up to 550 people at a time for ping-pong matches, specialty bar food and drinks, or restaurant dining. Chicago and UK-based artists created the artwork adorning the interior of AceBounce. DMA is supporting the client with additional, pending projects in other US markets.
