In the News: Punch Bowl Social — not Brooklyn Bowl — is heading to Fulton Market


Goodbye Brooklyn Bowl, hello Punch Bowl Social.

The Denver-based bowling, gaming, restaurant, and bar mini-chain has finally found a spot to open its Chicago location, as Founder and CEO Robert Thompson says they’re coming to 832 W. Fulton Market in October 2017. It’s a switch for the two similar gaming/dining concepts as Punch Bowl’s new lease is for the building that was slated for Brooklyn Bowl.

The opportunity for Punch Bowl arrived at the end of the summer and talks to take over the Brooklyn Bowl space escalated quickly, according to Thompson. "We were already actively looking in Chicago, but we weren’t going to come to the West Loop because Brooklyn Bowl was (coming) there," Thompson told Eater Chicago on Wednesday night.
