*Pronounced like Bowling, but with a “F”
Fowling is a mixture of Football and Bowling in a Horseshoes style layout. Teams of two stand at opposite ends of the lane and alternately take turns throwing a football at their opponents bowling pins. The first team to knock down all 10 pins, wins.
Whether you’re in your backyard, tailgating at a local sports event or at a neighborhood park, Fowling is good wholesome fun. There’s no better way to spend time with your friends. You might even make some new ones too.
The Fowling Warehouse
The coolest under-the-radar club in Detroit
Fowling happens almost every day at 17501 Van Dyke St. It’s on the second floor in the old Toy Warehouse across from the Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Pull into our secure, lit parking lot through the alley on the south side of the building.
3 lanes, every Wednesday, in the parking at the Fowling Warehouse from 7pm ’til Midnight.
Open Fowling is available Wednesdays,
Thursdays, Saturdays and every other Friday. Doors open at 7:00pm. Mondays & Fridays we have leagues. Also look for local bands performing on our 400 sq. ft. stage for Rock ‘n’ Fowl.
Please see the Calendar page for all our upcoming events.
Your fee at the door ($5 – $10 depending on the night) gets you unlimited fowling until we close for the night.
LANE RESERVATIONS NOW AVAILABLE!
Depending on your group size, you have a couple of options as a guest at the Fowling Warehouse:
1. Everyone pays $10 each at the door and you play on lanes under the customary “Challenge” rules. Just like pool tables at a bar, you challenge the team or person who wins the current match by calling “Next” on that particular lane.
2. Lanes reservation – The cost is $120 per lane for 4 hours or until Close, whichever comes first (8 Fowler maximum per lane).
Hold your special event at THE FOWLING WAREHOUSE. Reserve the entire facility so you and your friends can run amok and get your Fowl on. Get more info by emailing Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org. The rate for private events is $1000 for 5 hours.
Due to liability and safety concerns there is now a strict “OVER 21″ admissions policy for all public and private events.
