Huiet is also the co-owner of Wild Ax Throwing and The Great Escape in Beavercreek. He runs these two businesses with his other partner, Michael Keggan. Huiet said Keggan was the lead designer of the course’s miniature golf holes and contributed other ideas.
“Our mission statement at The Great Escape and Wild Ax is helping people escape reality through fun, and that will be the same mission statement at On Par.”
Games and activities at the entertainment center include:
Huiet said the entertainment center will have enough games and activities for more than 350 people to play at once. He explained that this was important to him because he recalled that he didn’t like going to bars when he was younger because he didn’t have anything to do but drink.
On Par will be a family-friendly establishment early in the morning, but will be 21 and older after 7:30 p.m., Huyet said.
The entertainment center features three bars with 102 taps featuring craft and domestic beer, wine, seltzer and cocktails. Huyet said that with each tap, there will be a display showing what it is, where it’s from, and what it tastes like. Guests will be able to pour as much or as little as they want and refill by the ounce. Soft drinks will be provided free of charge.
Huyet describes the pour-your-own experience as an “adventure” as guests can sample a variety of drinks. They added that they plan to serve primarily Ohio products to regional brands in Dayton, Cincinnati and Columbus.
The 33,000-square-foot venue, which seats more than 500 guests, will include an outdoor patio with a fireplace that seats 50 guests, Huyet said.
He explained that On Par’s favorite wings and appetizers will be limited when opening, but plans to expand the menu later.
Huiet said she is excited to take her experience in the entertainment industry to the next level. The expected opening date for the entertainment center is August 1, 2023.
The Beavercreek area will welcome another entertainment complex in early winter called Off Par Golf & Social. Located at The Greene Town Centre, the venue features seven 16-foot-wide, 11-foot-tall simulators, offering guests the ultimate golfing experience. Huyet said they are friends with the owner and plan to market their business together.
On Par expects to employ 70 to 75 people and will begin the hiring process in four to five months, Huyet said.
