Recess Ribbon Cutting

We are officially open!


  • Are kids allowed in the facility?

    At this time, we suggest 12+ in the facility. Most of the games in the open play are geared to grown teenagers to adults, so there will be limited activities to do for children under 12. We will be 21+ at the very least on Friday and Saturday nights, but that could expand to more dates after we open. We will allow children parties of 12+ to rent the Fenway replica field!

  • Can I bring my dog?

    We do not allow pets, but of course service animals are allowed!

  • What kinds of activities can we do with our group?

    We can service groups/parties of 2-200! We offer the TD 10 Pin for groups of up to ten per lane, and the field rental for up to 30 guests. If your group is over 50 guests, we will work with you to find options that work best, including exclusively renting our entire facility!

  • What kinds of drinks do you serve?

    We are so proud of our beer offerings, starting with our custom 16 tap draft system carrying some of the best beers central mass has to offer! We will also have dozens of other can offerings as well! Along with our extensive beer selection, we do have a full liquor license that includes liquor and wine. Sticking with our local theme, Polar is also our soda/seltzer provider!

  • What are your hours?

    Currently, Mon Closed, Tues - Fri 5:00pm-close*, Sat 12:00pm-close*, Sun 12:00pm-close* (*Hours of operations will change to suit demand.)
    Note: Friday and Saturday 6pm-12am is 21+. These hours are likely to expand after opening. Our facility is also available to be rented out during the day to large groups/corporate events.

  • Will you be offering leagues of any type?

    YES! Shortly after opening, we will announce leagues that will include kick ball, wiffle ball, dodge ball, corn hole, and TD 10 Pin. With enough teams, we can also set up your own, exclusive league, that works best for you and the participants!

  • Will you be offering any games outdoors?

    Currently, we have no outdoor activities, however we will be working with the town to try and have an outdoor piece to our offerings!

  • Do you offer food?

    We do not have any food options at Recess, however we will allow anyone to bring their own food into the facility. We are also working with some great food trucks to be there during peak hours and we have contracted with The Mill Restaurant across the street from us to form a special catering menu for you and your groups as well!

  • What should I wear?

    Recess recommends sneakers and clothes that you are comfortable moving around in.
