The Fireside Bowl is an original family owned Chicago Bowling Alley established in the 40ís. At that time Bowling was very popular, Chicago being a blue collar town, was a bowling Mecca. Everybody was in at least one Bowling League with people from work or Church. Over the years The Fireside flourished, during the 50ís and 60ís until the Factories started closing and people kept moving to the suburbs and Logans Square became a bit unruly. However, The Fireside has been catering to Bowling Leagues, Office Parties, and North Siders at 2648 W. Fullerton for years.
The Fireside changed along with the times and was a source of entertainment all along the way. While many Bowling Alleys in Chicago wound up closing, The Fireside has had lanes open for 60 years in Logon Square.
Lately with all of the disco bowling and light shows and glow in the dark bowling, it has become increasingly difficult to find a place with that true Bowling Alley feel. Now and forever The Fireside Bowl holds on to popularity by staying true to the game of Bowling in the city of Chicago.
Countless Bowling Leagues have tossed balls down these lanes. This newly renovated bowling alley has maintained the original look and feel of the past with updates to the scoring, equipment and amenities. Technically located in Logan Square, people in Bucktown, Wicker Park, Lincoln Park and all over the North Side have found their way to The Fireside Bowl.
