Radio Social Reopens With New Social Distancing Guidelines

Made with Soom’s kosher tahini , the difference was noticeable and appreciated. We tore apart warm and soft housemade pita bread and went in for ample dipping. We couldn’t resist a game of bowling and started with bar snacks.

The 42,000-square foot facility features 34 bowling lanes, lounge areas, a variety of indoor and outdoor games , a full-service restaurant, and two bars. The 42,000-square-foot facility includes 34 bowling lanes, lounge areas and a variety of indoor and outdoor games. An event space can be used by the public or booked for private events. Make sure you reserve lanes in advance if you want to bowl, as they are likely to be fully booked, especially on weekends.

From the large plates menu, pastrami-spiced carrots ($15) impressed for their vibrant orange hue. Whole petite carrots with stems were cooked until charred, concentrating their flavor while maintaining a slight firmness. Beneath the root vegetable, pearls of couscous were prepared as risotto creating a luscious texture. Orange cream spooned over top brought a burst of citrus, offsetting characteristic pastrami brininess. The kubaneh “pull-apart” bread ($12) with dips was wonderful.

It more of an adult place, but kids can go with with an adult. In an effort to keep our community safe during the rise of the COVID-19 delta variant, as of September 8, 2021, we will be requiring all guests over the age of 18 to show proof that they are fully vaccinated.

Then there is the sit-down area called Ophira, which is the more upscale dining experience. Here, families will find Middle Eastern cuisine like hummus, falafel, duck wings, scallops and kebabs. Children under 21 years old must be accompanied by an adult at all times and those under 21 are only permitted at Radio Social until 9 p.m. Formerly a radio factory, Radio Social is now a bowling alley, bar, social club and restaurant. Families will love bowling and playing cornhole, Ping-Pong, giant Jenga, foosball and more before or during dinner. Of course, bowling remains the star of the show.

We did not have food, but others in our group did—they were served “curly fries” that were just regular fries, but they looked good. Because people can eat while bowling, the bowling balls were a little…greasy. All in all, an interesting venue and cool place for a night out. There are two different dining options at Radio Social. The Shortwave dining option is counter service and offers things like wings, pizza, burgers and fries–all great to eat while bowling.
