So long, Stadium Lanes

Stadium Lanes and the Clubhouse Bar have been wrapping up operations over the past two weeks. The building at 132 N. 34th Ave. W., between Wade Stadium and the ore docks, is being gutted and sold. There will be no more bowling in West Duluth … except for lawn bowling. Word is the new owner will divide the building up into some type of business center or mall, with mini storage units.

Stadium Lanes opened in 1960, owned then by Dick Karon and Jerry Singer. Randy Hill has owned it since 2004, later changing the name of the bar to Clubhouse. Before that it was Mary’s Place.

  1. That’s a drag. I liked that place, though we clearly didn’t go there enough to keep the lights on.

  2. Oh! Very sad!

    Fond memories of Mary’s Place from the late 1990s/early 2000s. Had some buddies that used to go there for the 44oz(?) mugs of Leine’s Red. It helped that they didn’t check IDs since we were only 19 and 20.

    Also, having spent a few years growing up in Gary, that was probably where I bowled for the first time!

    I’d love to get my hands on that big “Stadium” neon sign!
