Tavern+Bowl is a premier restaurant and hospitality company that develops and operates innovative restaurant and bar concepts. In the hospitality industry, Tavern+Bowl stands out amongst its counterparts for numerous reasons, namely due to the fact that it provides its patrons with the opportunity to participate in a contemporarily spun retro sport while maintaining an unpretentious, family-friendly atmosphere.
Tavern+Bowl has taken the concept of the neighborhood tavern to the next level by incorporating state-of-the-art bowling lanes. Unlike your average bar/restaurant, Tavern+Bowl provides its patrons with a physical activity that promises its participants an exciting alternative to an otherwise mundane social scene. An undiscriminating sport, bowling requires little-to-no prior training and can be enjoyed by young and old, male and female, singles and families alike. Tavern+Bowl appeals to every demographic with its unparalleled versatility, providing the perfect locale for birthday parties, mixers, corporate events, holiday parties, and other social occasions.
Unlike other modern-day bowling centers, Tavern+Bowl also attracts non-bowlers with its familiar yet innovative menu. Our Southern California-inspired meal selection features down-home comfort food with a gourmet twist. Ultimately, Tavern+Bowl strives for recognition not only as an outstanding entertainment venue but a renowned eatery that offers American cuisine suitable for even the most critical palate. While similar concepts choose to focus on elements of nightlife, Tavern+Bowl places culinary expertise at the forefront of their business model. Visit www.tavernbowl.com to learn more.
