Upscale Bowling Alley/Entertainment Venue could be in the works in downtown Greensboro

Recommended Posts


Hopefully it happens. There have been two efforts in the past to either bring a bowling alley/bar either downtown or on the edge of downtown. The current effort seems to have some real legs and with the success of Boxcar Barcade, I think bowling would be just as successful. Currently only Charlotte has a downtown bowling alley in the state.

What can downtown Greensboro expect with the planned downtown bowling alley on South Elm Street?

Paul Talley of Greensboro owns the Limelight Nightclub several blocks north of the site where he will build an upscale  boutique bowling alley. The location of the bowling alley will be at the corner of Lewis Street and South Elm Street at the heart of downtown Greensboro's growing downtown entertainment district. Within a block of the site are breweries, a distillery, restaurants, Boxcar Barcade and the destination chain frozen daiquiri bar Fat Tuesday. The 7-story Hampton Inn and Suites going up is also not far away.

Paul Talley also owns the Comedy Zone in Greensboro and an upscale 6 lane bowling alley and bar near downtown Greenville, SC called Stone Pin. Talley plans an 8 lane bowling alley in downtown Greensboro with a restaurant, an upscale bar with cocktails and craft beer. This will be a great entertainment addition to downtown Greensboro and it will be around the corner from BoxCar Barcade. The bowling alley will be a little more upscale. Charlotte already has a downtown bowling alley and there is also an 8 lane bowling alley planned for downtown Durham.

Downtown Greensboro will have a bowling alley similar to this one 

Stone Pin, Greenville, SC also owned by Paul Talley.

Paul Talley has already demolished an existing building and is planning to go through the permitting stage.

@cityboi Which building was demolished? There's an empty lot on the corner of Lewis and elm plus an empty building. Was there a building here a while ago?

There was an old gas station on the corner that was torn down. Looks like Talley is going to use that lot with the building next to it.

That part of South Elm Street (South of the tracks) use to be dead at night. It use to be full of antique shops. Now it's becomingan extension of downtown's vibrant restaurant and entertainment scene and its not just South Elm. Downtown no longer has an entertainment/ restaurant strip. Its becoming a district because the entertainment and restaurants are expanding a few blocks west with the Tracks Bazaar complex.
