We started at the bar, which is centrally situated in the main dining area at the front of the building. A curated cocktail list, beers and wine are all available. I chose the New Balance cocktail ($10), which was summer in an old-fashioned glass.

We did not have food, but others in our group did—they were served “curly fries” that were just regular fries, but they looked good. Because people can eat while bowling, the bowling balls were a little…greasy. All in all, an interesting venue and cool place for a night out. There are two different dining options at Radio Social. The Shortwave dining option is counter service and offers things like wings, pizza, burgers and fries–all great to eat while bowling.

While Radio Social was constructed as a successor to — and retains the same management as — the classic bowling alley Clover Lanes, there is quite the difference between the two establishments. While Clover Lanes was your everyday bowling alley, Radio Social has diversified into something more complex — and something that’s harder to easily summarize. Radio Social styles itself as a modern urban social club.

“I used to go bowling every week freshman year at that seedy place on Jefferson because it was cheap and something fun to do,” Stockman said. While Radio Social can be a fun experience, part of bowling’s appeal is its affordability. Morganstern says taking these measures was crucial as both bowling alleys and bar-like restaurants are under a deal of scrutiny for being higher-risk spots for spreading the virus. On top of structural changes, the alley is adhering to state guidelines, which include separate lanes, and mask requirements.

Then there is the sit-down area called Ophira, which is the more upscale dining experience. Here, families will find Middle Eastern cuisine like hummus, falafel, duck wings, scallops and kebabs. Children under 21 years old must be accompanied by an adult at all times and those under 21 are only permitted at Radio Social until 9 p.m. Formerly a radio factory, Radio Social is now a bowling alley, bar, social club and restaurant. Families will love bowling and playing cornhole, Ping-Pong, giant Jenga, foosball and more before or during dinner. Of course, bowling remains the star of the show.
