A Bowling Alley on Gay Street?
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.
