GREENVILLE – The Bullseye Game Lounge on the second floor of Downtown Greenville’s Sure Shot Tap House officially opened Wednesday night with a large crowd in attendance.

“We’re excited for the public to come in and see this,” said owner Andrew Riffle. “Hopefully, everybody is as excited as we are. We appreciate everyone’s support.

Riffle noted that this project is slightly different from most of his others, so he brought in his cousin Allison Burke from A & B Events to co-lead the project.

“Allison is typically a wedding and event planner,” Riffle stated. “She was our project leader. We co-led the leadership so I could keep my eyes on the day-to-day and both my restaurants; the result is beautiful.

The Bullseye Game Lounge replaces a busy three-bed, three-bath B&B.

“I am always trying to look for what Darke County and Downtown Greenville is missing,” said Riffle. “I was raised in Darke County, have been here my whole life, and traveled outside the county to go to tap houses, ax throwing, and escape rooms.”

“Greenville is a great place to live, and this is something that has been missing here,” he added. “The first step was to get the Tap House here. We’ve been blessed with strong patrons’ support, and it is going well. Often, I travel outside the county to Scene 75 with my kids, so I wanted to do something like that here in Downtown Greenville so that people in Greenville can stay in Greenville and people outside of Greenville can travel to Greenville and support Sure Shot and downtown Greenville.”

The new venture includes two venue rooms upstairs and downstairs, and all ages are welcome for parties of all kinds, including birthday parties.

“We like to have family-friendly environments at the Whistle Stop and Sure Shot, and that will hold true for this game room,” Riffle said. “All ages are welcome.”

Riffle shared that a second phase may come if the new project is successful.

“Hopefully, phase one will be successful and go well, and we can continue to develop this building and Downtown Greenville,” he said. “Hopefully, a phase II. We would like to grow the game rooms and some escape rooms, hopefully on the horizon.”
