The Alley celebrates three-year anniversary with ‘70s-style party

Guests at The Alley’s ’70s-themed anniversary party last year got festive on the bowling lanes.

When The Alley opened three years ago, it was a celebrated addition to the peninsula’s nightlife scene, especially among kids who just so happened to be trapped in adults’ bodies.

With bowling lanes, giant TVs, throw-back arcade games and a full bar and restaurant, The Alley has become a popular go-to spot for families, sports fans and even Bill Murray. (The celeb took the blues legend Keb Mo for a round of bowling after his concert at the Charleston Music Hall a few months ago.)

For all the success, the founders are celebrating The Alley’s third anniversary with a big 1970s-style party called Studio 300, complete with a silent disco, roller girls, party music by DJ Natty Heavy and free bowling and arcade games. There will be complimentary appetizers and tickets for cocktails, beer and wine.
