In addition to 8 lanes of retro bowling, the 16,870 sf warehouse features a 40 ft signature bar made of a reclaimed bowling lane, a 150 seat restaurant, a 1,900 sf mezzanine space with lounge area & a 17 ft bar, and outside seating. With food prepared by Home Team Kitchen, this place rocks and offers a new menu concept that changes the perception of typical bowling alley food. The chef-driven cuisine  features made from scratch dishes using local product with a focus on comfort foods and American classics. The Alley is an incredible place to watch any sporting event. There are two 160” projection screens in the restaurant space along with multiple TV’s throughout. They also have a 10ft basketball goal, a ping-pong table, two Skee-Ball machines, 2 pinball machines, & 12 vintage arcade games.

The Alley is the perfect destination for group events and parties. Designed to easily accommodate larger parties, The Alley can host groups of 10, 20, 50, or 400. Check out their Event Page for more information on booking large parties.

601587_305263736250694_1806113792_nA few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend their grand opening party and can say this place is going to be one of the hottest things in Charleston for years to come! The Studio 300 retro disco party supported The Be A Mentor Program and even actor and local resident Bill Murray showed up to add to the excitement! Click here for the Red Carpet arrival photos and here for more.

The Alley is committed to making Charleston a better place. By offering a dynamic entertainment experience to a diverse and growing community, The Alley is far more than just another bowling alley or sports bar.

Memorial weekend sets the scene for one of Charleston’s favorite fundraisers as Share Our Suzy presents the 7th Annual Suzy McGrane Memorial Party on Saturday, May 28th from 5:30-11:30pm at Lookout Pavilion at Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina located at 20 Patriots Point Road in Mt.

Suzy McGrane was a local photographer who was diagnosed with breast cancer and ultimately lost her battle in her early twenties. What started as Save Our Suzy is now known as Share Our Suzy. The goal of SOS is to bridge the financial gap and allow breast cancer patients to focus solely on recovery and not the financial stress brought on during this very difficult battle. Funds raised cover the critical areas that insurance companies do not by providing assistance to those with every day needs such as wigs, prosthetics, childcare, gas cards, utility bill assistance, medication assistance and more. Share Our Suzy’s mission is to raise money and resources to assist and support breast cancer patients in South Carolina from diagnosis to remission.

One of the originators of the jam band movement, Indecision‘s innovative music is a unique blend of rock, jazz, blues and extended jams complete with rich and complex lyrics. Indecision has shared the stage with musicians such as Widespread Panic, Phish, Blues Traveler, Dave Matthews Band, Jorma Kaukonen, Hootie and the Blowfish, The Neville Brothers, The Connells, Jupiter Coyote and more.

Not all Southern rockers fit into an expected mold and that is exactly the case for the rhythm and blues five-piece, Gaslight Street. By incorporating Southern music traditions with their own life experiences, these long time friends have shown that Southern rock still has a place in the American music pantheon. Gaslight’s hard rock edge and fast guitar leads keep their loyal core of music loving fans thirsting for more.
