Hipster bowling is set to strike Bushwick.
Punch Bowl Social — a nationwide chain of booze and burger-slinging indoor adult playgrounds — plans on opening its first New York location in a couple of neighborhood warehouses, and a company honcho thinks its concept will be right up the borough’s alley.
“There is so much Brooklyn DNA in what we’re doing at Punch Bowl Social, we thought it time we ‘brought it home,’ ” said the brand’s chief executive Robert Thompson.
The Brooklyn Bowl-meets-Barcade conglomerate — which already has locations in Denver, Portland, Chicago, Austin, and Detroit, among others — has inked a deal to set up shop at the two connected industrial properties at Starr and Troutman streets, as first reported by the Real Deal.
The Bushwick outpost — nearly half a football field in size — will hold bowling lanes, ping-pong tables, shuffleboard courts, retro arcade games, private karaoke rooms, and giant wall-mounted Scrabble boards
The grown-up Dave and Buster’s will also sport a rooftop deck half the size of the massive ground level, live disc jockeys spinning tunes on the weekend, and periodic rock-paper-scissors tournaments.
The company aims to open its doors in Bushwick by summer 2017.
