AUSTIN ( -- Another Austin institution is falling victim to the coronavirus pandemic, with Dart Bowl announcing it will close its doors forever this Friday.

"This is a terrible loss for our family and for Austin, but a pandemic that keeps people home is also keeping them away from local entertainment options," said Dart Bowl co-owner John Donovan. "This is the toughest thing we’ve ever had to do as business owners, but it was our only option."

In addition to the bowling alley, the Dart Bowl Cafe - famous for its old school enchiladas - will also close its doors for good Friday.

The closure won't affect co-owned Highland Lanes and Westgate Lanes.

"We all look forward to folks who have enjoyed the place making one last visit, rolling one last game, eating one last order of enchiladas before we shut it down Friday," Donovan said.
