Somerville’s Assembly Row now has a new fun zone filled with arcade games and plenty of bowling lanes. Lucky Strike Social (325 Revolution Dr.) opened its doors over the weekend, per Boston Restaurant Talk, joining another local outpost in Fenway.
The Somerville Lucky Strike spans two levels and around 36,000 square feet. The first floor includes the restaurant and bar, with a second bar, bowling lanes, floor shuffleboard, games, and a private event space on the second floor.
Aside from the bowling lanes and games, Lucky Strike offers a menu full of classic comfort food, ranging from sandwiches and salads to mac and cheese and flatbreads. There are also items like shrimp tacos, pork banh mi bao buns, Thai mussels, and spicy pork dan dan noodles. To drink, there’s a full bar, serving cocktails such as passionfruit mojitos and spicy margaritas.
There’s been a burst of bowling resurgence in Boston over the last year, even after longtime hangout Lanes & Games closed in Cambridge. For one, another Lucky Strike took over for Jillian’s in the Fenway neighborhood, while a second Flatbread Company candlepin bowling alley recently opened in Brighton, joining the existing one in Somerville’s Davis Square. Additionally, a massive Kings location opened last October in the Seaport District.
Somerville’s Lucky Strike is open Sunday through Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m.
