TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A new restaurant in downtown Topeka offers arcade games, bowling and a beer garden.

The Pennant, located at 910 S. Kansas Ave., is planning their grand opening Friday. The two-story restaurant also offers a sports bar, skylight and a full menu, which employees say offers food choices you'll recognize and some that have a unique twist.

Some hope the late hours will start attracting more Topekans downtown.

"The hope is that people start seeing downtown as an option," said Thad Halstead, the Marketing Director of AIM Strategies. "So, we're excited about that. We'll be open until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday evenings, we're open until midnight every other night, but we're going to have great craft beers, we're going to have great cocktails, fantastic service and a really great environment."

The Pennant has partnered with different downtown stores as well. They use spices from Moburts on their burgers and chocolate from Hazel Hill in their signature shakes.
