Latest About South Bowl
South Bowl, the long-awaited sister project to the ever-popular North Bowl, opened in February on Oregon Avenue just east of Tony Luke’s. The former fruit and produce distribution center needed a major overhaul to transform it into a hip bowling alley, but by golly, did they ever pull it off. There are 26 lanes, multiple pool tables, a brick oven for pizza and an upper level (with a bar and old school games) that overlooks the lanes.
We found a fun video on Youtube that shows the lanes being built in just over four minutes! Better still, it’s set to the music of A-ha’s Take on Me. Fair warning: You will have this song in your head for the rest of the day.

The long awaited South Bowl has softly opened on Oregon Avenue, just east of I-95. The 26-lane bowling alley from the team that brought us North Bowl is currently open 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. In addition to being much bigger than its neighbor to the north, South Bowl also offers pizzas from a wood-fired oven.
The two-floor space includes a large bar, private lane nook and a roof deck. Grand opening festivities will be announced soon.
