 Barrel19 Bistro & Bar Honored by Golf Inc. Magazine



NORTHBROOK, Ill., Jan. 16, 2018 – KemperSports announced today that Barrel19 Bistro & Bar – located in Sunnyvale, Calif. – has been honored by Golf Inc. Magazine as the most improved public dining facility in their annual Golden Fork Awards.  


After entering into an agreement with the city of Sunnyvale, Calif., KemperSports embarked on an ambitious improvement plan that led to a complete conversion of un-used space to a contemporary dining and banquet facility.


The improvements included a kitchen renovation with new equipment, updated dining room and full-service bar, improved outdoor patio dining with seating for up to 150 guests and a chandelier-adorned grand ballroom for hosting large banquets such as weddings and corporate functions for Apple, Google, LinkedIn and other large tech companies in the neighborhood.


Barrel19 Bistro & Bar re-opened for business in May 2017.


“Barrel19 is a great new space in an attractive market,” says KemperSports CEO Steve Skinner. “Our staff’s commitment to delivering exceptional service to golfers and non-golfers will be a serve Barrel19 well in the future.”


Just down the street from some of the largest tech companies in the Silicon Valley, Barrel19 is open to both golfers and the general public for breakfast, lunch and happy hour with a full-service bar, indoor bistro seating and a large outdoor patio overlooking the golf course. Barrel19 can cater special events up to 200 for special events such as weddings, corporate meetings and post golf tournament banquets in a chandelier adorned grand ballroom. The bistro also offers the convenience of a Starbucks with baristas serving specialty drinks, fresh pastries and grab and food options in a warm and vibrant atmosphere.
