A double-decker bowling alley named Broadway Bowl and Bull will open next year on the third and fourth floors of Lower Broadway’s Nashville Underground, according to the Tennessean. In true Nashville fashion, the owners of the massive 40,000-square-foot venue have since told Eater that they will serve a full menu, focused on all things hot chicken.
The new family-friendly bowling venue will build a menu around the hot chicken found at Nashville Underground — the only place on Lower Broadway where tourists and locals can try true bone-in Nashville hot chicken. While the full menu is still in the works, they say they’re considering hot chicken nachos, tacos, and other variations of the fiery bird. They also plan to serve the hot chicken flatbread and sliders that are already popular on the other floors of the mothership.
Co-owned by brothers Joey and Gavin DeGraw, Nashville Underground opened in December 2017 as a live music venue and event space, boasting multiple bars and serving two separate menus on their various floors. A mechanical bull is available to ride on weekends, roundly checking the Nashville honky-tonk cliche box. The space sits on Broadway between 1st and 2nd Ave, right next to Acme Feed & Seed. It features a video-projection dance floor, swanky lounge areas, and surprisingly artistic and clean bathrooms for Broadway. Nashville Underground also flaunts Lower Broadway’s highest, largest, and only true multi-level deck rooftop. Built in 1946, it originally served to store goods delivered from barges on the Cumberland River.
