I am obsessed with bowling. If I had time I would join a league. Seriously. Well as if Monday night unlimited glow in the dark bowling wasn’t enough, Bowlmor Lanes is bringing is a 90,000 square foot bowling alley to Times Square in October. Located in the former New York Times building on 44th Street, it will be a multi-level bowler’s paradise and the second flagship location for the company.
With 50 lanes, two nightclubs and a celebrity chef restaurant this is going to be one hell of a space. The venue, created by CMS Architecture & Design (W Hotels, Buddahkan, Dylan Prime, NOBU), will be separated into seven sections to portray iconic attractions of New York including Central Park, Chinatown, SoHo, Tribeca and the subway system. There will also be antique items from the venue formerly known as Tavern on the Green.
ChiChi212 will take a look at the space over the summer, but I’ll pass the time thinking about 50 LANES and shopping for new bowling shoes.
