Star Lanes at Polaris: Bowling

There’s a bowling alley opening at Polaris, this spring, Star Lanes.  The Columbus Dispatch article called the concept “Boutique Bowling.”

The former Circuit City store at Polaris

The old Circuit City building at Polaris is going to become a bowling alley.  The retail  building sat empty for a number of years.  The former Circuit City building temporarily served as a Halloween store one year.  The building was at least one other temporary retail operation since the Circuit City Store at Polaris closed.

A rendering  in the Columbus Dispatch article showing the future interior  of Star Lanes had a mid-century Spacely Sprockets (the company George Jettson worked at) kind of vibe.

Star Lanes is going to be a small bowling establishment according to articles in Columbus Business First and the Columbus Dispatch. Star Lanes will be twenty bowling lanes total.  Six of those lanes will be in a more private setting, that will be used for private parties.  Corporate events…team building.*  Star Lanes will also have an arcade and a restaurant.

The bowling alley will be operated by Lucky Strike.  The Lucky Strike website says:

“Lucky Strike is a unique entertainment bar & restaurant that provides bowling lanes wrapped in a stimulating atmosphere of art, music, and an energetic crowd.”

Three local business men (two brothers and their father)  are starting the unique bowling business in southern Delaware County, Ohio.

There is one “boutique bowling” establishment in central Ohio already, Ten Pin Alley in Hilliard (Franklin County.)

Speaking of teams*… I believe HER Realtors Lewis Center office ought to book a party at the new Star Lanes at Polaris in the spring. A team made up of the men in our office won a Columbus Board of REALTORS charity event at Columbus Square a few months ago. The women’s team from the HER Realtors Lewis Center office did NOT fair so well…. The bowling alley at Columbus Square (Cleveland Avenue and Morse Road in Franklin County) is anything but a boutique.  BIG, no make that huge.  Not cute.  It has a mid century vibe but in a different way… traditional bowling alley.
