Boutique Bowling Lounge Opened in Newport on the Levee

A boutique bowling lounge has opened at Newport on the Levee last month when Star Lanes opened on the Plaza Level of the entertainment complex located on the Ohio River.

The 24,640 square-foot location was built out by Northern Kentucky-based Century Construction. Star Lanes on the Levee boasts 12 public bowling lanes, a DJ booth, billiards, roughly 30 HD projection and LCD screens, and a private party room with four of its own bowling lanes.

Star Lanes also brings the Cincinnati area its first boutique bowling lounge - an attraction that has become quite popular in cities around the country.

Complimenting Star Lanes is a separate bar and lounge called Toro that includes a patio, private party room, and a mechanical bull. Toro shares a full-service restaurant with Star Lanes that is open to the public during the day.  Both establishments require patrons to be 21 years of age or older in the late evenings when the establishment takes on a nightclub atmosphere with drink specials.

Owned by the Newport on the Levee ownership group, Star Lanes and Toro are operated by Lucky Strike Entertainment, which is known for its upscale bowling lounges around the country including one in Louisville, KY.  This is Lucky Strike's 19th boutique bowling location.

Star Lanes is open Sunday through Wednesday from 11am to midnight, and Thursday through Saturday from 11am to 2am.
