Pacific Coast Pizza and Walkers Bar and Venue could open yet this summer

WICHITA — Construction is again under way at the future Pacific Coast Pizza and Walkers Bar and Venue near Intrust Bank Arena. They could open yet this summer or in early fall.

The businesses were supposed to open in March at 222 S. Commerce St. That’s at the south end of a series of buildings attached to the back of the former Spaghetti Works space, which is east of the arena.

There have been numerous challenges, although no one involved is discussing what those challenges are.

“Some of those have been able to be worked through on both sides,” says building owner Ryan Mills.

He says in the next week or two, he should have a better idea of when the businesses can open. He says the owners would like to time the openings to events at the arena.

First, though, he says, “There’s a lot to do.”
