The Town Hall Lanes is an old-school neighborhood bar and restaurant alongside a modern ten-lane bowling alley. We’re proud to feature our own Town Hall Brewery beer amongst an extensive tap list and full bar.
If you’re in the mood for more than a drink, our broad menu of pub fare is anchored by our house-made flatbreads and half-pound burgers.
Whether you’re stopping by for a pint after work, or bringing the whole family for bowling on the weekend, we’re just happy to welcome you to our corner of the neighborhood.
At Town Hall, we like to balance innovation and exploration with an appreciation of history and those that came before us. That commitment is evident in our beers as well as in the places we serve them.
We began brewing beer in Minneapolis’ historic Seven Corners neighborhood in 1997, in a 1906 building once occupied by Dudley Riggs’ Experimental Theater Company. At that time, the total number of breweries in the state of Minnesota was fewer than twenty. With the support of a small but devoted group of Twin Cities craft beer lovers, we were able to keep the doors open through the early years.
In 2010, we expanded into South Minneapolis by opening the Town Hall Tap at 48th and Chicago. Minnesota state law prohibits us as a brewpub from distributing our beer to other bars or liquor stores, so the only option for expansion was to open another restaurant ourselves.
The success of the Town Hall Tap was fantastic, and after a couple years we were ready for a new challenge. The old Skylane Bowling location was the perfect match; great history, great neighborhood, and of course, bowling!
