From its inception in 2006, one that was lauded by former president Bill Clinton and other New York City officials, Harlem Lanes has remained committed to the revitalization of the Harlem community and has become a staple in the local entertainment scene.
“Four years later, Harlem Lanes continues to uphold its promise and commitment to the renaissance of Harlem,” says Harlem Lanes proprietor Gail Richards. “Our success, and very existence, would not be possible without the unwavering support of the Harlem community. With our Celebrity Strikeout anniversary event we’re able to extend our gratitude, have a great time, and continue our mission to give back.”
The Harlem Lanes Presents: Celebrity Strikeout will be the grand finale in a series of community-oriented events at Harlem Lanes during April and May (e.g. Kids’ Day Free Bowl, Karaoke, Jazz Night, etc.) to commemorate the venue’s 4 year anniversary.
