Texas-Based FreeRange Concepts Debuts Bowl & Barrel in Houston
FreeRange Concepts, a restaurant group creating fresh ideas and popular venues in top markets, announces the opening of Bowl & Barrel’s first Houston location on Monday, August 8. Located in CityCentre at 797 Sorella Ct. Ste 118, Bowl & Barrel will provide Houstonians an elevated bowling experience accompanied by unique, handcrafted food and drink menus.
“We look forward to introducing the Bowl & Barrel concept to my hometown,” said Kyle Noonan, native Houstonian and co-owner of FreeRange Concepts, which founded Bowl & Barrel. “We’ve put a lot of love and thought into the design of the space, the development of our menu and the selection of our staff to make this a one-of-a-kind entertainment destination.”
Born in Texas, Bowl & Barrel combines rustic and sophisticated touches, creating a comfortable yet classy atmosphere for guests as they bowl, drink and eat from the house-made menu expertly crafted by Chef Daniel Menchaca. Bowl & Barrel offers a unique experience for both new and seasoned bowlers with 14 lanes of bowling entertainment, complete with brand new Qubica/AMF equipment, vibrant and colorful bowling balls and high-definition TV screens for players to enjoy.
The full service restaurant and bar features an eclectic selection of gourmet burgers, exotic shared plates and smorgas-boards, 18” house-made pizzas, artisanal meatballs and its signature giant soft-baked pretzels. Everything is made with high-quality, locally sourced ingredients and served up by Bowl & Barrel’s friendly, attentive service staff. Add a custom-made classic cocktail from the bar, or browse the extensive beer menu – including four rotating German-style Texas craft beers – to find the perfect brew. Light, medium, dark and seasonal beers are always on tap, and red and white wines are poured directly out of the barrels.
Some of Bowl & Barrel’s twists on casual classics and distinctive menu items include:
- Hot Fried Quail – Chickpea flour and cayenne with ranch
- Cornish Hand Pies – Filled with ground beef and HP sauce
