If you were a regular at Palace Bowling Lanes on Bellaire Boulevard, this news should be exciting for you. The establishment has had a complete makeover and is reopening this June!
Part of the new mixed-use development, Southside Commons at 4191 Bellaire Blvd, the bowling alley has been remodeled as an entertainment and food destination.
“We’re excited to welcome guests of all ages to Palace Social, drawing on the memories of the past with a new vision of what a neighborhood entertainment concept can be,” said Billy Forney, CEO of Palace Social. “Our goal is to tap into the nostalgia that folks have for the former Palace Bowling Lanes with food, beverage, gaming, and entertainment offerings that resonate with today’s tastes. We fully intend for new memories to be made at Palace Social, which has been a true community-driven project.”
Designed by both Tramonte Design Studio and Gin Design Group, the 27,000 square foot space has an eight-lane alley, a 3,900-square-foot arcade, 600-square-foot e-sports lounge, event rooms, and a 159-seat open-area restaurant and lounge.
Well-known names such as Chef Ryan Hildebrand (formerly FM Kitchen & Bar), Chef Efrain Villareal (Tony’s Mexican Kitchen), Jennifer Caldwell (Goodnight Charlie’s) and Jonathan Horowitz of Convive Hospitality Consulting have helped develop the food and beverage plan at Palace Social.
“Palace Social is definitely not yesterday’s bowling alley canteen experience,” said Hildebrand. “Our menu is loaded with elevated comfort food and gourmet shareables, a mix of southern regional classics, and all-American fare that draws on the history of Palace Lanes while attracting a new generation of diners looking for a great meal in addition to the fun attractions.”
