Basic Burger Owner Opens Play Venue for Kids in Courthouse

One of the owners behind a local burger restaurant has a new business venture that doesn’t revolve around food.

Basic Play, a new recreational venue, opened at 2024 Wilson Blvd on Monday. The indoor playground is located next door to its sister business, Basic Burger.

“One of the owners of Basic Burger has two little ones,” said Basic Play director Ana Castillo, who did not give the owner’s name. “Through his personal life, he’s realized there’s a limited number of businesses in northern Arlington that are dedicated to younger children.”

The play area, which is designed for kids under 40 inches tall, features soft BPA-free surfaces that are cleaned with non-toxic disinfectants after every play session.

“We strive to make sure our place is as welcoming and open to as many people as possible,” Castillo added.

Basic Play offers “open play” periods that last 50 minutes and cost $10 per session. The business also hosts birthday parties and special events.
