If you walk down Branson Landing, you can now peer through the windows of Andy B’s Bowl Social and watch people bowl.
Andy B’s Bowl Social opens to the public November 29, and with it, a new type of Andy B’s concept with emphasis on the word “social." From the second you enter, the space is open, creating a friendly and bright ambience. There is less of an emphasis on bowling—although there are still nine lanes—and more of an emphasis on activities people can do together. There is giant Jenga, shuffleboard, board games and foosball. There are private karaoke rooms to rent that can fit a dozen people comfortably, where you can sing to your heart’s content.
Andy B’s Bowl Social has also invested big into escape rooms. There are three with ranging levels of difficulty, the easiest being the “Kidnap Room.”
The food and drink offerings are also a highlight, with special twists on menu favorites. The appetizers—think pork rinds—are also prominent, factoring into the social, shareable atmosphere the venue wants to create. The bar and restaurant are full-service, and you have the opportunity to order food from the bowling lanes. Ten-inch pizzas and burgers are main entrees on the menu. The bar will have craft cocktails. It also has windows that can open in the summertime for an open-air feel.
If you’re familiar with the Andy B’s in Springfield, you’ll notice the differences at this Branson location. Andy B, owner of Andy B’s, says that the Branson location is smaller and more of an intimate setting.
This is a place you’re going to want to stay a while, and you’ll have plenty of options for how to spend that time. The space is designed to fit whatever type of day or night out you want to have, somewhere that adults can have as much fun as their kids.
“We’re just so excited to be on the Landing,” Andy B says.
