Our History

1960. Muhammad Ali won a gold medal at the Summer Olympics, John F. Kennedy was elected 35th President of the United States, and Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho become one of the most recognizable motion pictures in history.

The leisure activity of bowling gained unprecedented popularity in the ‘60s, with more than 12,000 bowling centers opening across country. In Charlotte, North Carolina, Park Lanes opened on Montford Drive, and was instantly embraced by Charlotteans as the city’s hotspot for America’s new recreational pastime.

Today, 10 Park Lanes is more than just a bowling alley, featuring a full-service kitchen with the region’s best barbecue, an impressive selection of local craft brews and a chilled moonshine bar. 54 years later and 1700 Montford Dr. is still one of the city’s hippest hotspots, with local celebrities and professional athletes stopping by to enjoy the three B’s: beer, barbecue, and bowling.
