Frequently Asked Questions

So, what’s your deal? Are you a bowling alley? Live music venue? Restaurant? Bar?  
 

Whoa. That is an intense start to question period!

Alright, we’ll try our best here. What’s our deal? Best way to look at it is . . .  we are a live music venue that has a full kitchen and bar.

We also have six 5 pin bowling lanes and two pinball machines. We are place to gather with friends, coworkers and family.

A place to enjoy each other's company while having a bite to eat and a beverage or two. A place to see some of Winnipeg’s finest musicians share special moments on stage.

What makes us unique is you can do all of that while bowling!

(if we have available lanes of course).
