Downtown Vancouver's Commodore Lanes reopens for bowling and pool

Jun 16 2020, 10:02 pm

Downtown Vancouver’s Commodore Lanes has reopened to the public, after closing several months ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic

The longstanding bowling and billiards institution opened in 1930 and is one of the oldest bowling centre in Canada.

Naturally, a number of additional health and safety measures have been implemented for the benefit of patrons and employees. For starters, staff at Commodore Lanes will be keeping track and enforcing a reduced customer capacity, with no more than 50 individuals allowed inside.

Bowlers will only be able to use every second lane and only nine of 20 billiard tables will be available. Any equipment such as balls, shoes, and pool cues will be sanitized between uses. Face masks will not be required but are highly recommended.

Those that do not have a mask available will be able to buy one at Commodore Lanes and there will also be several stations set up for hand sanitization.

Changes have also been made to the venue’s hours of operation and pricing. Commodore Lanes will operate under reduced hours (11 am to 10 pm from Sunday to Thursday; 11 am to 11 pm Friday and Saturday).

Billiards will be charged by the minute with a one-hour booking minimum and bowling, which remains time-based, can be done in 30-minute increments.
