At its heart, Socibowl is three separate spaces (Four if you include the incredible outdoor patio!)
+ A full-service restaurant ready to fill your glass and belly +
+ A duckpin bowling alley where your inner kid can escape +
+ An indoor beer garden with yard games, darts, and pinball +
This is the space we built for ourselves… but we’ll share it with you!
EAT, DRINK, AND BE MERRY
Taking inspiration from Mid-Century Modern design (wonder why? click here!), our restaurant space welcomes all ages for a casual dining experience. We’ve worked hard to ensure that there is an option from everyone in your party, and are proud to offer great food, beer, draft cocktails, and wine to fill your stomachs.
With many great restaurants in Downtown Muskegon, it’s important to us that our offerings stand out – and we think you’ll find that Chef’s work stands on its own. When it comes time to wash down your food, enjoy a draft beer made at our downtown production facility, draft cocktails crafted by our team on-site, Michigan cider, or one of our hand-selected wine offerings.
While you dine, enjoy your surroundings, from our custom art to our custom walnut and maple bar, with a design inspired by George Nelson and Ray & Charles Eames.
LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL
Our duckpin bowling alley, featuring six lanes of small balls and big fun, is ready to entertain everyone from couples to friend groups to families. Whether you grab one lane – and make new friends with the bowlers at the next – or take up several lanes, this is the high-energy heart of Socibowl. With games ranging from PinPix (put your picture up on the screen and see what happens next!) to more traditional ten-frame, there are plenty of options to keep the action going throughout your time in the bowling area.
We are now accepting reservations for dates beginning on or after December 24th! Until then, we’re accepting walk-ins with a waitlist as needed.
NO SNOW IN THIS GARDEN
What do German beer hall tables, fake grass, hedge walls, darts, pinball, and oversized yard games have in common?
You can find all of them in Socibowl’s indoor beergarden! We’ve taken the best of the outdoors and combined it into a fun communal (and oh, so kitschy) space. Always warm and safe from the snow, our beergarden is the most casual space at Socibowl. Here, you can grab a beer and play some games while you wait for your tables or lanes. Or, if you’re like us – just head straight to the back and pass an evening enjoying pints and playtime with friends.
THE THREE AMIGOS
Joel, Chad, and Michael come from diverse backgrounds but we all share a common love: craft beer.
As a Certified Public Accountant, Joel possesses an otherworldly understanding of excel spreadsheets and a keen eye for business. Chad’s years in lean manufacturing and design allow him to efficiently direct production, maximize space, and – most importantly – make excellent beer. Michael, a “liquor lawyer” who loves playing in photoshop, navigates the bureaucratic red tape while guiding our sales and drawing pretty pictures.
From the beginning, our different personalities and skillsets began to meld through a shared passion for community and craft beer. Over many nights spent building tables – with pints in hand – we formulated a vision of a company that embraced community and craft beer, all while building a space where misfits like us belong.
We were just three regular guys with a dream. That dream became Pigeon Hill. Nine years later, we find ourself taking that dream to the next level with Socibowl. From our first humble gathering space to a full-fledged entertainment complex, we remain devoted to great beer, our community, and crafting places where we can all do life, together.
