The Vernon Club, nestled in a historic building dating back to 1886 rolls out 8 gleaming lanes with automatic scoring, a new internet jukebox and tasty comestibles for fueling competitive appetites. Players don borrowed footwear and the letterman jackets of league-player ghosts before hurling three-holed spheres toward pins poising themselves for the welcomed whack of a spare or strike.
Bowlers can rest their pin-striking biceps of fury with a gooey 12-inch pizza or maintain concentration while grasping a bratwurst in non-bowling hands. On select nights, rock bands set up shop beside the lanes and churn out foot-tapping ditties until 1 or 2am.
Located inside Vernon Club's old mansion, Vernon Lanes is the oldest active bowling alley in the country. The Vernon Club has a massive open room under the lanes, which hosts dance parties, live music, Vernon Productions and special occasions. Remodeled back to its 1886 glory, the facility has two full bars with over 300 bourbons. The Vernon is available for private rental for small to large groups.
