According to the company's website, a second Modern Round location inside The Revelry at Mesa Riverview has closed as well. The Revelry was an indoor and outdoor food and entertainment facility with a sports bar, virtual shooting lounge and restaurant, mini golf course, and retro arcade. The space next to Bass Pro Shops was formerly Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill.
Hailed as the “world’s first visual shooting lounge,” Modern Round allowed guests to shoot replica firearms at a projection screen, like a video game, according to the company’s website. There were different games and shooting scenarios ranging from a standard shooting range to a modern-day zombie apocalypse.
Early last year, Robrt L. Pela of Phoenix New Times put the innovative restaurant concept in his crosshairs.
Shooters could choose from two non-recoil pistols, two recoil pistols, or two recoil rifles. The wireless replica weapons had the look and weight of real guns. Simulations were provided by VirTra, a company that provide firearms training for law enforcement and military personnel.
Modern Round is owned by Nevada-based Modern Round Entertainment Corp. The company spent nearly $3 million to build the initial Arizona location in Peoria in 2016. The Mesa location opened in early 2020.
