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.

We were going to share a bowling joke for #InternationalJokeDay…but we’ll SPARE you 😉 ...

nothing,nowhere. at #EastsideBowl 09.08.2022

The genesis of nothing,nowhere. traces back to Mulherin’s hometown skatepark in Foxborough, MA, where he found the friendships that became the impetus for his music. After cycling through a handful of early projects, he settled on nothing,nowhere. in 2015, and after the Soundcloud success of “Don’t Mind Me,” he knew he had to stick with it. By the time he had released his sophomore album REAPER, he was collaborating with heroes such as Pete Wentz and Dashboard Confessional, and being praised in the New York Times.

This is a moment he has thoroughly worked for and you can be part of the musical journey this September at ESB!

ABOUT LAST NIGHT and @roosevelt_music at #EastsideBowl

📸 @blkcir

As a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, dancer, and award-winning actress, RobinAugust has spent much of her life onstage, funneling her personal experience into art. This 𝗦𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗮𝘆, 𝗝𝘂𝗻𝗲 𝟮𝟲, 𝟱𝗽𝗺, she makes her debut as a solo artist with AVOCADO HEAD, an emotionally-charged album that brings a contemporary perspective to her old-school rock influences.

Still a teenager, RobinAugust brings a veteran's sense of experience, electricity, and eclecticism to AVOCADO HEAD. The songs range from acoustic ballads to richly-layered rock anthems, with RobinAugust's sharp songwriting and emotive performances gluing the mix together. An album of grooves, guitars, swagger, and song craft, Avocado Head is the latest chapter in a story that continues to unfold, with RobinAugust condensing a lifetime of artistic projects into her finest work to date.

@whitneyband at #EastsideBowl 10.28.2022

Julien Ehrlich and Max Kakacek have masterfully created new songs for their third album as Whitney, SPARK, with buoyant drum loops, effortless falsetto hooks, and out-of-this-world keyboard lines. Through their efforts, they sound like a band reimagined, and their once ramshackle folk pop sound is now brimming with unprecedented gusto and sheen.
