The fancy bowling bar the Goodnight closes, will relocate to West Sixth

The bowling bar the Goodnight has shuttered its West Anderson Lane location.

Austin’s combination bowling alley and nightclub on West Anderson Lane has called it a night — at least temporarily.

The Goodnight has announced on its website that it is relocating this summer to West Sixth Street, near Republic Square Park, and has closed its doors in the meantime. 

“We are very sorry to announce that we have decided to leave our Anderson Lane location after failed attempts to find a solution with the landlord,” according to the bar. “The entertainment scene has drastically changed in North Austin since the Goodnight first opened its doors in 2012 and this particular location has been affected by all of the great concepts that have since opened in the area.”

When the Goodnight reopens at 501 W. Sixth St. this summer, customers can expect a a new food menu, as well as “tablet scoring, virtual reality, karaoke and more.” Like the Domain’s Punch Bowl Social and the Alamo Drafthouse’s the Highball, the bar combines a variety of games with good food and a fun nightclub atmosphere. 

At least one Yelp user noted the Goodnight’s closure was a bit abrupt and didn’t notify customers ahead of their reservations this weekend that the bar had shut down.

The West Sixth Street location has been in the works for a few years, according to a late 2015 Eater Austin article.
