Sport, or game? Some would argue that if it can be done with a beer in your hand (and a basket of chicken wings in your face) then it falls just short of being a sport. At Ten Pins Tavern in Athens, GA we’d like to think of bowling as a backdrop to your real good time—whether you’re aiming to roll 300, or not.
The vintage lanes tucked in the corner of the Homewood Hills shopping center offer a timeless bowling experience, with a few unexpected surprises.
For starters, forget the concession stand fare you’re used to. You’re not going to find any bright orange nacho cheese here. Take a bite out of a grilled to order 1/3 lb hamburger or sample a slice of the zesty original 16” calamari pizza. Sure to please any palate, the menu runs deep and wide—in the kitchen, and behind the bar! A wide variety of draft and bottled beers and signature liquor drinks make this a great spot for getting belly-up to the bar for the games on TV, if you’re not participating in the games on the lanes. Or is this a sport? Whatever.
Did we mention live music?
Athens, GA is known for its fertile music scene and the space that houses Ten Pins Tavern has played host to a wildly eclectic number of notables, including REM, Centro-Matic, Pelican, Hayride, Black Tusk and The Silos. Check this Website regularly for updates on the return of the Sunday night heavy metal music series Headbangers Bowl and the introduction of our Tuesday night open mic series featuring a revolving cast of local songwriters hosting the event during month-long residencies.
Yes, we have leagues. Greek leagues. Church leagues. Service Industry leagues and Open leagues are forming now. Long and short season formats. T-shirts. Trophies. Glory. Bragging rights. Exercise. Whatever reason (or excuse) you’re looking for to get out of the house and on a team—we can help!
