Alpharetta, Ga, Feb. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The formation of Competitive Social Ventures, LLC (“CS Ventures”), a real estate holding, restaurant, and entertainment company, was announced by Managing Partner Neal Freeman. The new entity will launch three unique brands with distinct themes encouraging play and promoting competitive socializing through artfully curated “Food and Beverage” experiences. CS Ventures has four venues in development or under construction with the first two locations expected to open this spring in downtown Alpharetta, GA and Winston-Salem, NC. Future plans include expansion opportunities focused in the Southeast U.S. with each venue’s design and architecture heavily inspired by the cultural influence of each unique location. In addition to Freeman, principals include experienced developers Jason Joseph, Simon Burgess and A.J. Belt with Mayfair Street Partners, and well-known hospitality developers and operators Brad Rahinsky, Fred Cerrone, Joe Reardon and Bryan DeCort with Hotel Equities.

33 Degrees, an affiliate of award-winning Hotel Equities, has been selected to manage operations for CS Ventures. 33 Degrees specializes in the management of commercial real estate including hotels, office complexes, retail, entertainment and restaurant venues.

Freeman has nearly 40 years of real estate development experience, coupled with a passion for sports. The combination resulted in a unique vision for CS Ventures encompassing three different social venue brands.

  • Fairway Social is a sports entertainment-themed venue offering various world-class sports simulators, an outdoor putting experience, along with food and live entertainment for all ages. The first Fairway Social location will open April 2021 at The Maxwell in downtown Alpharetta, GA.
  • Roaring Social is in a speakeasy setting featuring live music and entertainment with boutique bowling and an assortment of food and beverage options including craft cocktails.

Each location will feature an outdoor stage for live events and entertainment by local artists of all types. The first Pickle and Social location will open in Q1 2022 in Roswell, GA.

As visionary and developer of the $100 million LakePoint Sports Community in Emerson, Georgia, Neal said, “I most enjoy blending my personal focus on family with friendly competition in new and creative concepts for real estate.  I’ve been blessed to bring to success, a variety of real estate shopping and dining experiences. At this point in my career, adding the entertainment component -- whether sports, music, or competitive activities to our development capabilities at Sports Community Consultants, is a lot of fun,” Neal commented.

“Expanding the 33 Degree property management footprint by investing in CS Ventures and its growth plans is a significant milestone,” said Joe Reardon of 33 Degrees. “We have partnered with Mayfair Street Partners on several hotel developments, most recently The Hamilton a Curio collection hotel in Alpharetta and we had the opportunity to work with Neal in the past on exciting projects as well. We are big fans of his unique vision and ability to bring them to life. CS Ventures will follow suite with its well-rounded group of partners,” said Reardon.

Jason Joseph, Managing Director and Partner of Mayfair Street Partners said, “We believe investing in these entertainment concepts will bring ‘authentic destinations’ to downtown Alpharetta and every location we determine to be the right fit. We could not be more excited about the CS Ventures partnership and our commitment to bring destinations to each location through a variety of creatively powerful entertainment concepts.”

Brad Rahinsky had these comments on the partnership, “we are certain that these entertainment and dining destinations will quickly become the go-to destinations of their respective communities. Each venue is focused on becoming the community’s favorite location for special events, corporate gatherings, weddings, and a night on the town with friends and family.
