SMALL BALLS. BIG FUN.

The future of social fun in Downtown Muskegon. Food. Drink. Duckpin Bowling. Darts. Pinball. Oversized Yard Games.  This is a big kids’ wonderland.

We’ve set out to create the perfect space for a night out with friends – or a night where you meet your new best friends. At Socibowl, it’s all about living life, together.

So much room for activities.

Whether you’re looking for relaxed fun and games in a beer garden, high stakes duckpin bowling, or dinner and drinks, we have all the elements for a perfect night socializing with friends.

THE ACTIVITIES

Social + Bowl.

What’s in a name?  At Socibowl, the name is everything.  It’s not merely a place to be social and bowl – it’s a place to be sociable.  Socibowl is a big city gathering place with small town charm – both engaging and welcoming. 

This is a place to live life, together.

small beginnings. BIG DREAMS.

The three amigos behind Socibowl (and Pigeon Hill Brewing Company) are all proud Muskegon residents.  When we realized that we all wanted more “to do” downtown, the answer was obvious: Let’s do something about it.

BACKSTORY

HOW DO I GET SOCIBOWL?

How’s it all work?  With so many great activities, how do you choose?  It’s easy – you can make reservations in advance, talk to our friendly host when you arrive, or head over here for more details about what you can expect during your time at Socibowl.

DUCKPIN BOWLING

Duckpin bowling is a variation of ten-pin bowling, with the biggest difference between the two games being the size of the ball and pins used to play. In duckpin bowling, players roll a ball slightly larger than a softball down the alley to knock down the pins.
Or, as we like to say – small balls, BIG FUN!

WALK-IN PLAY RATES

We always permit walk-in, open play depending on availability.  During busy times, you are welcome to join the waitlist through the OpenLane app (iOS / Android) (it may take us a few weeks to get it fully functional!) or in person.  To ensure lane availability, we strongly recommend making reservations online.

There will sometimes be an opportunity to join our waitlist in person if necessary. We recommend up to 4 bowlers per lane.  If you want to finish up a game after your initial rental, we may have options, depending on other reservations and the waitlist.

To learn a little more about how things work at Socibowl before you arrive, head on over here.

Lane Rental

$30/hr

We recommend up to 4 people per lane.

Duckpin bowling is fast-paced fun, with game choices ranging from traditional-style ten frame bowling to family friendly wackiness.  The balls are handheld, so you don’t have to worry about getting your fingers stuck.  And, best of all – no fancy shoes!

The Press

The only thing I am mad about is my weak Skeeball skills. Everything else was top notch and SO fun! I highly recommend the Croquettes, they are a meal in itself. Beautiful place, and a wonderful addition to downtown Muskegon!

Mistelle S.

Friendly and personable staff that went above and beyond to make our experience the absolutely best it could be. The atmosphere was upbeat, fun, family oriented and exactly what downtown Muskegon needed. I would highly recommend Socibowl for couples, families, team building events, networking events and company outings. Will definitely return!

Colleen G.

When you are as ADHD as I am, it can be tough to go bowling. Too much waiting, too many yawns. With Duckpin Bowling, I'm so engaged that my wife never threatens to smack me for wandering off!

Michael BrowerOwner and Whatnot

When you are as ADHD as my husband, an evening out can be tough - he's running off in a million directions and can't sit still! At Socibowl, there's always something to keep him entertained, which means I can finally enjoy a night out without telling him to sit down and behave!
