From breweries to concert venues and food truck parks, there’s no shortage of things to do in Savannah’s Starland District, and now you can add something new to that list: duckpin bowling.
“What I liked about the idea is that it’s more of a bar with bowling versus just a bowling alley, so you can keep it a little more intimate and pay attention to the details inside of the space and it’s a little more laid back,” said Chris Moody, who along with Steuart Wainright, own and operate Moodright’s Bowl & Boogie at 2424 Abercorn St., which includes four lanes of duckpin bowling.
Popular in the northeast and midwest, the rules of the game are similar to traditional 10-pin bowling, but the ball is smaller and the pins are shorter, thinner and lighter than traditional pins. Players try to knock the pins over in the fewest amounts of rolls, which in duckpin bowling is three instead of two.
The cost to bowl is $3 a game Monday through Thursday and $5 a game on Friday and Saturday. During happy hour, which is 3 to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, it’s free. Employees will be stationed in an area behind the bowling lanes to reset the pins and pass the balls back to the players and while the four lanes at Moodright’s aren’t regulation length, the fun is still there, Moody said.
“I just want people to have fun with it. Some people will take it seriously, but I just want people to have a good time,” he said.
Along with darts and a pool table, the bar includes a selection of beer, wine and house cocktails and they’re also working on getting a duckpin bowling league together along with weekly bingo nights. Lots of wood and decor from the 1970s and 1980s will give the bar a vintage feel, Moody said.
“We found this reclaimed wood spot that did a lot of work with bowling alleys that went out of business, so we got this shipped from Indiana,” Moody said of the wood used for the lanes, bar and table tops.
While he’s excited to bring something new to Savannah, Moody said he’s also happy to bring more entertainment options for locals to the neighborhoods outside of downtown.
“If you want to have a full night out in Starland, it’s pretty easy to do,” he said.
“… Being part of something to help grow this neighborhood is pretty awesome. It’s a little more laid back than downtown.”
