Bass Pro Shops Pyramid

Bass Pro Shops • Retail & Restaurants • 2015

A&ES teams-up with Bass Pro Shops to build the Pyramid in Memphis, TN. The pyramids aren’t just in Egypt anymore…


Step inside one of the world’s most dynamic, immersive retail experiences! In 2015, downtown Memphis, TN opens Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid. Inside a massive, transformed sports arena along the Mississippi River banks, the icon is a national must-see experience for families and outdoor enthusiasts. Visitors explore an immersive cypress swamp with nearly 600,000 gallons of water features and soaring 100-foot-tall trees. The Pyramid hosts a wilderness hotel called Big Cypress Lodge, Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl & Grill – an underwater-themed bowling alley and restaurant – the Ducks Unlimited National Waterfowling Heritage Center and The Lookout, a restaurant featuring a glass-floored cantilevering observation deck at the top of the 32-story steel pyramid. It is always amply stocked with a vast assortment of outdoor gear for retail therapy enthusiasts. Bass Pro Shops Pyramid is the 10th tallest pyramid in the world!
