The 30,000-square-foot space, built on the former location of the longtime Palace Bowling Lanes, will also feature other entertainment options, such as sport simulators, karaoke and an e-sports lounge.
“We are excited with the team assembled to bring this project to life, one that will make a positive impact on the community as a gathering space for all ages,” said Billy Forney, Palace Social’s managing partner, in a news release. “We are fortunate to be working with the best minds in the business to create a truly unique and fun experience in a historic location with a high level of nostalgia for Houstonians. Palace Social will draw on elements from the past while firmly establishing itself as a new concept sure to create memories for new generations to come.”
Ryan Hildebrand, formerly of FM Kitchen, is consulting on the development of the restaurant, which will feature brunch, lunch and dinner with Southern and American flavors, complemented with a full bar.
“It will include offerings of scratch cooking diverse enough for a meal in the dining room, a snack at the bar, shared plates at the bowling alley or a group event in the karaoke room," Hildebrand said in the release.
Texana Builders is handing the construction effort, and Tramonte Design Studio and Gin Design Group are leading the interior design. Arkansas graphic design firm BLKBOX developed the branding for the project.
