Bringing you almost as much bowling alley awesome as Tyler’s Power Rangers-themed 1st grade birthday party (Mastodon!!), Mission Bowling Club's a new warehouse-residing restaurant-cum-bar-cum-bowlery, equipped with six lanes from an old Fort Bragg alley, comfy cognac-upholstered couches, and three brown tufted leather eating nooks, one of which is nicknamed the “Mafia Booth”, likely because spending too much time there will probably also see your night fade to black while Journey plays.
With food handled by the chef behind the Mission Chinese Food empire, MBC’s open kitchen’ll be throwing down high-concept bar snacks like Thai beef jerky, and an everything pretzel with fantastically rhyming lardo mostardo; more-than-snacks from a roast chicken Caesar (w/ griddled bread and gastronomically gelled spheres of dressing), and the infamous Mission Burger (a half-pound of never-compacted aged beef that's hard-fried in beef fat w/ caramelized onion, Monterey jack, and caper aioli); plus an entire section devoted to food on a stick. Hot dog!
And because your favorite types of blankets are liquid ones, their bar’ll be rocking an import-heavy bottled list, nine local drafts like Magnolia & Russian River (plus the owners’ two faves: $3 PBR & Guinness), and a cocktail program with fun drinks like the Over the Line (rye, Aperol, sweet vermouth) and the whiskey, vermouth, allspice dram, grapefruit, nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon Cooler.
Once it warms up, you can hit up MBC’s 50ft sun-facing patio and take advantage of their 3-6p happy hour, with $1-off drafts and cheap eats incl. $5 discounted Mission Burgers, all the more reason to Bada Bring your friends.
