BOWLING ALLEY BAR DESIGN FOR STARDUST BOWL

Cabaret Design Group announced the recent completion of a bowling alley bar design for a Chicago area bowling alley. Stardust Bowl, which owns and operates three bowling centers in the Chicago suburbs, hired CDG to redesign the 40-seat bar in its “Club 300” lounge at its Addison, IL facility. The 84-lane bowling alley in Addison is the largest bowling center in Illinois and one of the largest in the United States.

The Addison location has four bars, but its “Club 300” lounge is its primary nightspot, a sportsbar which also features a video gaming lounge, multiple big-screen TV’s, pool, darts, bags and suffleboard. CDG president, Rick Uzubell, stated that he was excited by the commitment of Stardust’s owner to totally revamp the bar by making it more socially-engaging and to develop a concept to feature a large-scale tap beer system as the cornerpiece of the project. Below is a sample of “Before” and “After” photos.

THE CONNECTION TO STARDUST BOWL

As with many of Cabaret Design Group’s clients, the owner of Stardust called our office because of our YouTube channel called “Bardesigners”. One of the owners saw a number of our bar design videos and immediately saw a connection. As is the case with nearly all of our clients, we worked directly with the owner.

FEATURES OF THE BAR DESIGN

The subject bowling alley bar is a free-standing island bar and back bar. Typical of our integrated bar design projects, we included:

  • Bar layout including all bar equipment.
  • Architectural plans for construction of bar and back bar and a full finish schedule.
  • Planned infrastructure for expansion of existing glycol draft beer system.
  • Procured equipment pricing for all bar equipment.

This project was a very complex makeover of an existing 40-seat circular bar. We had the task of redesigning a new bar over the same footprint. The trick was ensuring that the electrical and plumbing to be contained near the bar die.
