Bowling goes white collar at HeyDay



Downstairs, the cafeteria-style restaurant serving DoubleDaves pizza will transform into Revolutions, a more intimate cafe setting.

“It will be a totally different look,” Little said.

While DoubleDaves will still be served, patrons will have a wider menu selection and the kitchen will be enlarged.

The number of arcade games will also increase and private party rooms will be added on both floors. An elevator will allow wait staff to transport food upstairs and will make the upstairs accessible for persons with disabilities.

The new entryway will a greeting area with a water wall.

“It will be like walking into a nice hotel,” Little said.

The downstairs environment will allow “kids to be kids,” Bates said, but patrons will “definitely have an entirely different experience upstairs.”

Little said while there will be leagues, there will always be lanes dedicated to open bowling and weekends will be strictly open bowling.

The upstairs lounge, The BreakPoint, will seat 165 people and will include a fireplace, large island bar, televisions, video games, pool table, shuffleboard and a balcony rail that overlooks the downstairs bowling lanes. An outside seating balcony will overlook the miniature golf course.

The eight upstairs bowling lanes will be in Brunswick’s cherrywood finish.

“Brunswick is the premier bowling equipment provider,” Bates said. “We’ve certainly not cut any corners here. I’m sure some people will wonder what we’re doing building a facility of this level here, but whenever I’ve taken a risk, Norman and Moore have never let me be disappointed.”

The upstairs facility will be limited to patrons aged 21 and over. It will be ideal for a classy date-night out Bates said, but much of the facility can be rented to host a company party or training with full audio-visual support in each of the private rooms available for rent. After the company meeting, employees can bond and do team-building through lasertag and bowling — or not.
