Maple Hall, downtown’s one and only underground bowling alley, will celebrate its one-year anniversary in the best way possible: free bowling for everyone on Tuesday, June 27, from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. Guests will not only be offered an hour of bowling, but they will also have the opportunity to win door prizes throughout the day—and see Maple Hall’s newest attraction.
After months of work starting last fall (with architectural design by R2R Studio and construction by Christopoulos & Kennedy), “The Parlor” has recently opened upstairs. Intended for patrons 21+, it is a sophisticated socializing space with ample seating, a patio, and board games such as Scrabble and Pictionary.
The Parlor was always part of the original vision for Maple Hall, says General Manager Gina Truitt—to offer guests a full-service experience that goes beyond just bowling.
“A lot of bowling alleys you have to go to the bar and order your food at a concession stand,” Truitt says. “We’re based on the experience. We’re not just focused on the bowling. So, you don’t have to be a complete avid bowler here. We’re more about just having a fun time. We focused on the whole experience.”
And that complete experience will be on display during its “Bowliversary”—Maple Hall will offer guests chef-prepared food and craft cocktails.
“We put a lot of detail into our food,” Truitt says. “It’s light hands-on food. It’s fresh ingredients. We put a lot of thought into what we’re creating. We have healthy food and we have bar food.”
Maple Hall is located at 414 South Gay St.
