East Lansing eatery adds full bar seating



Pizza House has done some home improvement.

The East Lansing pizzeria, located at 4790 S. Hagadorn Road, recently expanded to twice its original square footage and almost doubled its original seating capacity.

The pizzeria now has 24 beers on draft, and some items were added to the menu.

Renovations began last October and continued for eight months.

The main motivation behind the renovations was extra seating for students during the school year, particularly during football season, said manager Jeremy Bates.

The most important change was the introduction of a full bar seating area, he added.

“Our major excitement with the whole thing is the addition of the bar,” Bates said. “Because everyone who has been in and seen it — especially regulars who come in all the time — has been asking us to build one for a while now, so they’re pretty excited.

"It’s got two 63-inch TVs and four 42-inch TVs directly behind the bar, so it’s a pretty neat space. We’re very happy about it.”

Pizza House is open from 10:30 a.m. to 4 a.m. seven days a week. The menu is online at www.pizzahouse.com.
