As Redstone Highlands continues to explore ways to enhance the lifestyle options available to our seniors, a new idea was developed. Creating a pub and lounge area would offer a new gathering space for residents, create an atmosphere for socialization, and provide a marketable lifestyle option.
Our Murrysville community was the first to undergo this transformation in December of 2012 and the first Highlanders was open for business. North Huntingdon followed in 2013, and in June of 2014 our Greensburg community hosted its Grand Opening event.
Each Highlanders features a bar, lounge seating, large TV’s and a warm and welcoming ambiance. The pub setting is perfect for the traditional Happy Hour and Social Hour events that our residents have historically enjoyed, but many other activities and events are hosted in these new spaces as well. The versatility of the spaces allows for a pub-like setting in which we can serve both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as presenting a coffee house feel. Wine tasting, Murder Mystery Events, Steeler Parties, Men’s Grill, Cooking Demonstrations, Coffee Chat, Poetry Readings and Card Clubs are just a few of the diverse events enjoyed in the Highlanders.
Not only are our residents enjoying the new enhancements, but the Highlanders has proven to be a popular location for our marketing clubs to meet, providing a wonderful opportunity to showcase our Redstone Highlands communities. And since Highlanders never closes, residents and their guests are free to utilize the amenities to enjoy a cup of coffee and some conversation any time.
Most recently, our Murrysville campus obtained a limited use liquor license which allows the sale of beer and wine in the dining room as well as at select Highlanders Happy Hour events. We look forward to being able to offer this service at our North Huntingdon and Greensburg communities in the future.
