Eastside Bowl

The 16-lane bowling alley at Eastside Bowl includes a new hyper-bowling concept developed by Richmond, Virginia-based Qubica AMF. HyperBowling delivers the perfect combination of bowling and gaming using a blend of software, mechanical design, electronics, lights, and sensors.

Lanes are currently first come, first served. We are a leisure lane center and will not be offering league play.

How We Roll

Only 6 People Per Lane

If you have more than 6 people in your party, you must get an additional lane. We will try our best, but we cannot guarantee that lanes will be together.

Consider Your Neighbors

Strong language or unruly behavior will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to ask you to leave.

No Food on the Lanes

If you are called to your lane but are still eating in the diner, please let us know. Once you finish your meal, we will offer you the first available lane.

Lane Time Cannot Be Added

We can only extend game time by a few minutes in order for you to finish a frame. If we are on a wait, you cannot purchase time once you have started playing.

Chark’s Laneside Diner (LSD)

Chark’s Laneside Diner offers a modern kitchen with retro diner atmosphere. The menu serves familiar diner items as well as the popular Shephard’s Pie from the Family Wash (an East Nashville staple from 2002-2013). 

Celebrating a special occasion? Wonderful! Please know that there is a $20 cake fee for parties who bring a cake to ESB. More information about parties and events in our FAQ.

A 20% gratuity is added to parties of 5 or more.

Due to unexpected health issues the event’s promoter is experiencing, this year’s Nashville Boogie event has been canceled. We considered moving forward with the event as originally planned, but have decided that it would be best not to risk last minute cancellation closer to the actual date.

All 2022 tickets will be refunded 𝘢𝘴 𝘴𝘰𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘴 𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦.

• 2022 tickets purchased through Eastside Bowl will be refunded automatically via point of purchase (SeeTickets). Please contact nashvilleboogie@eastsidebowl.com for further assistance.
• All 2020-2021 tickets will be refunded directly by the promoter, and more info on that will be forthcoming. We know you will have questions, but ask that you please allow us some time to work through this process.

✨𝗡𝗼𝘄, 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗻𝗲𝘄𝘀! ✨ Many of the Nashville Boogie offerings will still be available next weekend, May 20-22, at Eastside Bowl: Sabina Kelley will be onsite for model coaching; the record show will still take place; and some of the scheduled bands are looking forward to playing in our venue as their own event. More information will be posted 𝘴𝘰𝘰𝘯...STAY TUNED!

#tbt to the OG 1508 Gallatin Pike situation

Posted by @nashvillehistoryx -

“An officer keeps an eye on traffic of cars and shoppers on the first day of the Kmart shopping center on Gallatin Road at Walton Lane on August 26, 1965.”

The first store with the Kmart name opened in 1962. At its peak in 1994, Kmart operated 2,486 stores globally, including 2,323 discount stores and Super Kmart Center locations in the United States. As of April 16, 2022, that number was down to nine, including just three in the continental states. Today this location is home to Eastside Bowl!

Did you know that the origins of pinball are intertwined with the history of
games played outdoors by rolling balls or stones on a grass course, such as bocce or bowls? The evolution of outdoor games eventually led to indoor versions that could be played on a table, such as billiards and bowling. The tabletop versions of these games became the ancestors of modern pinball.🤔
