On The Town: Cityview Lanes, LLC


    Cityview Lanes may sound like a new hotspot, and
    it will be soon enough. It is actually the new name
    for what was formerly Don Carter’s Cityview, a
    long-time staple outing for TCU students. Cityview
    Lanes bowling alley is under new management
    and is getting a complete overhaul.

    Just like Don Carter’s, Cityview Lanes does not
    just offer more than 20 lanes of bowling. This
    venue also has pool tables and an arcade for
    the kid in you. Just for the adults, there will be
    a revamped, fully-stocked bar. Until the bar is
    finished, Cityview Lanes is BYOB.
    According to a Cityview Lanes employee, Don
    Carter’s was bought by new owners about a
    month ago and will be seeing a lot of changes
    in the coming months. For now, the bowling alley
    is cluttered with crates full of the new lanes and
    equipment that will soon be ready for use.
    Along with new lanes, Cityview Lanes will have
    new seating and a new look, accomplished by
    a paint job on the outside of the building. A
    Cityview bowling employee said the makeover
    is expected to be finished in late May.
    Don Carter’s has been a college hangout for
    years, and new ownership will not change that.
    Cityview Lanes is a great place for a group, large
    or small, to spend a night out.
    And the prices cannot be beat. Monday through
    Thursday after 9 p.m., Cityview Lanes charges $1
    per person, per game. Before 9 p.m., prices are
    $3.75 per game or $18.75 per lane, per hour.
    The alley is open 9 a.m. to 12 a.m Sunday through
    Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday through
    Saturday. Cityview Lanes is a great place to have fun
    with friends and get a drink while avoiding smoky
    bars filled with more-than-tipsy patrons
