The Danbury Zoning Commission is opening a public hearing tonight into Golf Lounge 18, which wants to move into the former Red Robin restaurant space at the Danbury Mall.  The virtual golf entertainment chain is asking for a Special Permit for a Cafe Liquor License. 

The Zoom meeting will also be streamed on the Commission's YouTube page. 

In addition to the interior mall entry, the location has an exterior entrance by the parking garage.  There are hourly rental fees, but monthly and annual memberships are also offered by the company.  Patrons can use their own clubs or ones on site.  

The company could hire up to 10 staff in Danbury. 

Bays are set up with technology that allows golfers to simulate a round on virtual renderings of courses, projected onto screens.  The same technology is used by the Dick’s Sporting Goods store at the mall so buyers can try out clubs before making a purchase. 

Golf Lounge 18 has two other Connecticut locations: in Orange and Fairfield.
