Lucky Strike bowling alley in West 7th strikes out

The Fort Worth location of Lucky Strike Lanes, the California-based chain of new-generation, retro-hip bowling alleys, has rolled its last ball. The 18,000-square-foot facility, part of the West 7th development near the Cultural District, closed its doors Monday.

“Regrettably, the property owners have chosen to go in a different direction for use of the venue’s current space by converting it to office use,” says chain spokeswoman Meredith DeSanti via email. “Lucky Strike is always looking for opportunities to offer its unique bowling, food and beverage experience, and we will continue to explore other locations.”

This leaves Houston as Lucky Strike’s only Texas location. The company has 20 alleys across North America, in Arizona, California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington and Ontario, Canada.

Representatives for West 7th have not returned calls for comment.

Lucky Strike Lanes, whose headquarters is in Studio City, Calif., opened in Fort Worth in 2011.

There are other similar bowling alleys in North Texas, including Bowl & Barrel and Bowlounge in Dallas.
