HIGHLAND PARK – The Highland Park Bowl is gearing up for prime-time, reports Eater LA. After a lengthy and extensive restoration, the 1927 bowling alley opened this past week to reveal the architectural details – and hundreds of bottles of old booze – that were hidden from view and long-forgotten for decades.
The renovation comes courtesy of the The 1933 Group, which also operates La Cuevita a short walk away as well as the Big Foot Lodge in Atwater Village, the Thirsty Crow in Silver Lake the recently renovated Idle Hour in North Hollywood. Revealing the past does not come cheap: about $2 million has been spent so far, according to KPCC. Restoring the eight wood bowling lanes cost $30,000 a piece.
After a preview party held earlier in the week, the Highland Park Bowl opened to the general public on Friday with signature drinks, Italian fare and bowling prices ranging from $40 to $60 per hour for a group of six.
In the future, expect a listening room area named Mr. T’s Room and a microbrewery. Highland Park Bowl is located in the 5600 block of N. Figueroa in Highland Park.
