Playseum Bethesda UPSTAIRS for Kids 8-14


Tween and Teen Play and Party Space: The Playseum UPSTAIRS

My family and I are longtime fans of The Playseum locations, which are wonderful toddler-preschooler-young elementary play spaces. But I just had the chance to check out The Playseum UPSTAIRS, which is big kid heaven!

On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, older kids can drop in and experience all the fun UPSTAIRS has to offer for a mere $10 a kid entry fee. If you bring a friend, the price drops to $7 each. This is a fabulous solution for kids who feel they are too old for babysitters but have parents who still need a date night or afternoon of shopping in downtown Bethesda!

They also host big kid, seriously cool birthday parties. My son is excited to host his party there this winter.

The Playseum UPSTAIRS has

  • Retro “coffee house” room with guitars, drums, keyboards, amps and karaoke
  • Billiards area with pool, foosball, basketball shooting games
  • Soap Making Center and makeup bar (using the LUSH soap, bath bomb and lip balm recipes!)
  • Bakery with cook-offs and treat-making
  • Oodles of board games
  • Pillow fight room (check out the photos)
  • Art studio
  • Crafting stations

Arts and crafts projects, snack and drinks are available for purchase in addition to the admission fee. A righteous deal in this area where a babysitter is at least $10 an hour!

Also, if parents would like to stay while their kids play, there is free wifi with ample plug-ins for your laptop and phone. Go ahead and get some work in while the kids have a blast.

And don’t miss the upcoming free holiday shopping party and girls night out at The Playseum UPSTAIRS on Thursday December 12, 2013. Babysitting is available. There will be chair massages, sugar scrub making, craft demonstrations, prize drawings, holiday refreshments and the chance to shop vendors for gifts. Proceeds from items you purchase benefit owner Gina Seebachan’s efforts to assist young women in India who are the victims of human trafficking. Reserve your spot at the party by calling or texting 240-507-8965.

  1. Wow, this looks awesome! I have to admit that as my kids have grown I haven’t been looking at your posts as carefully (my girls are 9 and 14 now), but this one is a winner! I have been wondering where my soon-to-be 10 year old might have her winter birthday party, and this may be just the place!
