‘Own some history’: Cambridge bowling alley Lanes & Games selling off its inventory


Cambridge bowling alley and hangout relic Lanes & Games is now closed, but the Cambridge spot is offering up some of its inventory and wares for sale to interested buyers.

On Friday, the Route 2/Concord Turnpike destination — which also featured a bar, restaurant, and arcade — took to Facebook to offer up a parts of the space, writing: “Own A Piece of History! Call 617-876-5533 Mon-Fri 9AM-5PM.”

We’re not sure exactly what is currently for sale, but we’re sure it’ll go nice next to all those pieces from Faces Nightclub. The owners of the space mentioned earlier on the week on social media that much of its inventory went to helping other bowling alleys with operational needs, but there could be some leftover bowling shoes, pool tables, and other mid-century modern relics up for grabs. Hell, we all need a pair of shows with the size printed on the heel, and if those old Airwalk bowling shoes from the ’90s never really scratched that itch, well, you’re in luck.


After more than 30 years of business, Lanes & Games closed last week, and the building will be razed in favor of a new 320-unit residential complex.
