According to reports by the Puget Sound Business Journal, Lucky Strike Bowling Alley will open a 23,900 square foot location in the upscale Lincoln Square development later this year.
Lucky Strike Lanes is an upscale bowling alley, which has 13 locations throughout the United States. The first store and roots of Lucky Strike Lanes originates in Hollywood, CA.
Lincoln Square opened in November 2005 with the intentions of bringing entertainment focused establishments to Downtown Bellevue. Current retail such as The Parlor Billiards & Spirits, Lincoln Square Cinemas, McCormick & Schmick’s, Trader Vic’s, Maggiano’s Little Italy, Manzana Rotisserie Grill, will be nicely accompanied by an activity based retail establishment such as Lucky Strike Lanes.
While nothing has been officially announced, Lucky Strike is most likely to occupy either the first floor location next to The Container Store, which has been used for temporary local events such as the Bellevue Fashion Show, or the unoccupied location on the second floor near the escalators.
You will now be able to shop, eat, go to the movies, obtain lodging, and now bowl all while in the presence of the Bellevue Collection!
The Seattle Times today has run an article with more details from Kemper Development, and Lucky Strike regarding the downtown bowling alley.
The Seattle Times verifies that the alley will be located on the second floor as it had earlier been speculated. Lucky strike will limit entrance to the facility to persons of 21 years and older after 9pm.
1992 marks the exit of the last bowling alley in downtown Bellevue. It has now been converted into what is now Barnes and Noble bookstore on 106th Ave.
