This will be Punch Bowl Social's 17th U.S. location, and another will open in Ft. Worth's West 7th neighborhood in July.
Punch Bowl Social's design is somewhat different according to CEO and founder, Robert Thompson.
"When we lay out bowling lanes, we never lay them out all together"..."There are two here, four over there, two here. ... You can sit at a high-top near a bowling lane and have a full meal — or you can reserve a table [in the restaurant>."
Thompson also hopes to retain some of Deep Ellum's past by including decor that harkens back to the area's punk and jazz history.
