Built in 1913, the Garden Bowl was originally a ten lane house with a billiard room on the second floor that featured a tournament-size table complete with four grandstands all around for viewing billiard tournaments. Over the years the building was cut back thirty-five times in order to widen Woodward and the storefront became the Garden Bowl Bar. Building renovations in 1966 made way for more first-floor lanes and a billiards area. With 16 brand new lanes and a slew of colorful, engaging bartenders, the Garden Bowl has become a favorite hangout of Detroit musicians, artists and the like. Hundreds of visitors flock to the Garden Bowl each weekend to experience Detroit’s Original Rock ‘n’ Bowl with DJs spinning everything from rock and punk to soul and funk while patrons bowl on glowing lanes.
