Cherry Lanes is set to be Door County, Wisconsin’s first bar arcade when it re-opens as Cherry Lanes Arcade Bar in March, according to the Door County Pulse. New owners Kevin and Erin Bosman bought Cherry Lanes in early January, and closed it immediately to remodel. It’s an old bowling alley in Sturgeon Bay that first opened in 1929.
Kevin’s personal collection of five pinball machines and four arcade games will go from the family barn to Cherry Lanes, with more to come. It already has three pool tables, darts and a foosball table.
Their remodel includes refinishing the eight vintage maple bowling lanes, updating the bar decor and adding an arcade vibe. They’ve also exposed the original terrazzo flooring and brick walls long hidden by wood paneling. Food will be limited to pizza, popcorn, hot dogs and snacks.
