Modern Round, a virtual shooting range in the P83 entertainment district in Peoria, has closed after five years of business. The virtual shooting concept and restaurant served food, beer, wine and cocktails.

According to the company’s website, a second Modern Round location inside The Revelry at Mesa Riverview has closed as well. The Revelry was an indoor and outdoor food and entertainment facility with a sports bar, virtual shooting lounge and restaurant, mini golf course, and retro arcade. The space next to Bass Pro Shops was formerly Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill.

Hailed as the “world’s first visual shooting lounge,” Modern Round allowed guests to shoot replica firearms at a projection screen, like a video game, according to the company’s website. There were different games and shooting scenarios ranging from a standard shooting range to a modern-day zombie apocalypse.

Early last year, Robrt L. Pela of the Phoenix New Times put the innovative restaurant concept in his crosshairs.

Shooters could choose from two non-recoil pistols, two recoil pistols, or two recoil rifles. The wireless replica weapons had the look and weight of real guns. Simulations were provided by VirTra, a company that provide firearms training for law enforcement and military personnel.

Modern Round is owned by Nevada-based Modern Round Entertainment Corp. The company spent nearly $3 million to build the initial Arizona location in Peoria in 2016. The Mesa location opened in early 2020.
