Lang's Bowlarama

Posted

Lang’s Bowlarama is a retro classic bowling alley, founded in 1960 and just as fun and fabulous today, thanks to the work of the Lang Family and their marketing manager Dayna Mancini-Simmons. After two generations, Lang’s is still owned by the founder’s grandsons, Rich and Dave Lang. They did a great job of restoring and renovating, taking the next step in hiring Dayna. “I’m in charge of preserving and elevating their family legacy. It’s bigger than just ad campaigns – it’s working with them to ensure their family legacy is being properly presented.”

In addition to great bowling, Lang’s recently opened a brand-new lounge with a full bar and 20+ beers on tap. Dayna and the team are debuting The Nelson, a fun, comfortable event space that can host parties of up to 125 people. It’s a great alternative to a traditional banquet hall. “The Nelson pays homage to Lang’s Bowlarama founder Edward Nelson Lang, and embraces the mid-century modern style of bowling’s golden age with a nod to aesthetic of the ‘50s and ‘60s,” Dayna says. “It makes me feel like I am a part of something much larger, that means something to Rhode Island, and that is pretty awesome. There’s something special in these walls. It’s not just a bowling alley; it was someone’s dream and it’s lived on through the generations.”
