Bowling at the Milky Way ends March 21

With the Milky Way Lounge and Lanes set close at the end of March, the last day to bowl at the Jamaica Plain venue’s candlepin lanes is March 21. (source: my Boston Herald Hotline)

The operators of the nightclub and Bella Luna restaurant are closing their location at 405 Centre St. and relocating to a smaller space on Armory Street near the Sam Adams Brewery complex. There will be scaled back live entertainment at the new place, with a heavier emphasis on the restaurant operation.

Last May, the Milky Way owners were informed that their monthly rent would increase from $13,000 to $24,000 once its original lease, signed 15 years ago, would expire in August. The original lease featured a locked-in seven percent yearly rent hike. It’s unclear what will happen to the candlepin lanes in the Milky Way basement space, which were first constructed in 1914.
