And here you have it, the new 12-lane, Brian Wilson-approved San Francsico edition of Lucky Strike Lanes, opening tomorrow on King St. Teasing out the local tie, founder Steven Foster—who opened his first of the chain's 21 outposts in LA in 2003—used to perform on the street in the Haight, and got into transcendental meditation in Berkeley. Who knew? His newest Lucky Strike boasts a 40-foot-bar, private rooms, projection screens, ping pong, pool and even a carnival claw—making it a great place for your next team-building event or bar mitzvah. Foster tapped Ray Azoulay of Obsolete Gallery to help design the space, weaving in a fancy new bowling lane power system that reduces consumption by 60%. Of course, there is a 100-year-old reclaimed wood bar, local art, and Straus soft serve on the menu. Now let's let the pictures do the rest of the talking. Take a look around and notice the added commentary and factoids in the gallery captions.
