The Goodnight is expanding with two more fancy bowling alleys and bars in Austin. The first one will be right in downtown on 506 West 6th, taking over the closed Miller Blueprint building. It is set to open sometime in 2016. The third one will open on Manchaca Road near Moontower Saloon within the next two years.
The original bowling alley opened on West Anderson Lane in 2012 by owner David Goodnight. No children under 18 years old are allowed. The Goodnight was sued by Travis County for unpaid property taxes last summer.
West Sixth’s drinking and dining landscape is changing rapidly. There was the debut of Steampunk Saloon and the second trailer of East Side King Thai Kun. Jackets-only Restaurant Jezebel turned into the third Grove Wine Bar. To keep up, Arro revamped the patio with late night hours. Sandra Bullock’s Bess Bistro shuttered earlier this fall and will make way for tapas. The future also holds bar Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Icehouse (WTF for short).
