Time Lapse: Watch South Bowl’s Lanes Get Installed to A-ha’s “Take On Me”

It's mesmerizing.

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.
