A Bowling Alley on Gay Street?

June 29, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I have been doing photo projects for Christopoulos & Kennedy Construction Co, over the past 25 years, and when I got the word to shoot a bowling alley downtown Knoxville, on Gay St., I was a little perplexed.  But what a gem I found!  The place is inconspicuous, nestled between a café and a pharmacy at 414 Gay St.  The entrance leads to a vast downstairs with 12 open lanes (yes 12!!), TVs, a large bar, lounge areas, etc...Another stairway takes you to the second bar and terrace upstairs, wow!  I didn't want to take pictures, I wanted to knock some pins!!  I love the brickwork on the walls as well as the look of old industrial Knoxville, back in the 20's.  Oh btw, the place is called Maple Hall.
