New Bowling Alley Replaces Lowes

A new bowling alley may be entering Aliso Viejo within the upcoming year, across the street from the Town Center. According to sources, the contract officially approving the upcoming construction of the bowling alley was signed early March. 

Bowlero will be more than just a bowling alley. According to Aliso Viejo Living, “it’s a bowling/dining/nightlife experience that’s packed with amusing throwbacks and ready to amaze.” It is a blacklight bowling alley, and is retro-inspired, offering a new twist on traditional bowling.  It will also offer cocktails for the adults and a menu featuring many shareable appetizers for family and friends.

The prices of Bowlero are a little more on the expensive side, but it is no surprise since it has so much to offer. The dining it offers will be much more upscale than bowling alley’s traditionally have. They will also have a bar to serve cocktails and drinks. The space will be made available to host special events, catering, and entertainment.

Bowlero will also have live music, DJs, and bands. Kalli Fischer (12) explains, “I am super glad they decided to replace the Lowes with a bowling alley. I’m glad that the huge empty space is turning into something that is entertaining and fun for all different age groups, I especially look forward to the live music.” 

The former Lowes and Staples location has been vacant for quite some time now, and there has been conversation over whether the space should be made into apartments. Nonetheless, Aliso Viejo leaders decided that a bowling alley is just what the city needs.

Aliso Niguel students are looking forward to the new bowling alley.

Lauren Hellewell (12) shares “I’m so excited to finally get a bowling alley near us. It should be fun and a good thing to do that’s not too far away like the beach or roller skating rink.”

Aliso Viejo and Laguna Niguel citizens look forward to a new, local hangout spot that hosts all ages.
