About Us

Social Play Haus

Social Play Haus is a fun, modern, and inclusive space where families can gather and connect. Our beer garden and event spaces provide a community hub for families to socialize and share resources. Equally as important, we offer great food and drinks – coffee, tea, beer, wine, and hard cider – for our guests to enjoy while visiting one of our locations.

At Social Play Haus, our customers can enjoy one of our artisanal flatbreads and a glass of wine while their kids play in a safe, modern play area. Or, if it is a morning meet-up, gourmet coffee, tea, and pastries. Guests without kids can also enjoy the restaurant which serves as a great spot for co-working, lunch meetings, and happy hour meet-ups. No matter when or why our customers come to gather, they can relax and enjoy their time with friends, neighbors, and their community while their kids enjoy the play areas designed with intention and purpose.

The open and modern dining area also functions as a backdrop for hosting amazing events. Our unique full-service event space makes it easy for families to host custom events and achieve Instagram-worthy parties without doing much of the work!!

Franchise owners enjoy the option to own a restaurant that has a streamlined menu, low overhead, easy build-out, and predictable traffic using our reservation system and advance booking options. Keep staff small and enjoy the flexibility to have a quality of life that comes from being a part of our brand.

These experiences have cultivated her vision of creating an inclusive space for families to explore, socialize and learn through prosocial interactions, positive reinforcement, and modeling which are the foundations of positive child psychology. The play areas are designed with great intention. Each toy is handpicked to stimulate motor skills and promote language and cognitive development, as well as to foster positive social-emotional learning.
