The bowling alley has been serving up strikes, spares and gutter balls since 1938. Located on the second floor at 44th and Butler streets, it’s become a hip hangout.

The New York Times referred to it as a place “where old school bowling vibe meets nightclub atmosphere.” Famous stars, including Tom Hanks, have hung out there.

“It’s time. I’m at that age. I don’t want to work as much as I used to. We’d like to get out of Pittsburgh when it’s cold, which is when this business is the busiest,” said Buncher.
