Corner Alley joins Uptown

JP. O’Hagan, Sports Editor

As the construction teams pack up their tools, the newest and most highly-anticipated addition to Uptown opens.

The Corner Alley at Uptown opened its doors for business with a soft open the day after Thanksgiving and had their grand opening on Wednesday Dec. 3. The new venue is the second of the local brand, following the success of their downtown location.

The Corner Alley is the brainchild of Mary Lessick and Todd DiCillo. The duo and their team came to Uptown looking to add to the vibrant University Circle neighborhood. “We want to reach out to the students, as well as the people working and visiting the hotels, museums and even the hospitals in this area.” said Lessick. “We looked to culture of the neighborhood in bringing the Corner Alley to Uptown.”

The new bowling and dining complex is a two-story modern building which houses 17 lanes of bowling, a full kitchen, two full-service bars and a video gaming area. The lanes are split into multiple smaller sections, all of which can be rented out. These sections and accompanying lounges allow for more personal interactions with friends and family, while still being open enough to accommodate for a flow from bowling to the food and drinks.
