To Our Valued Customers:

4th Street Bowl is happy to announce that we are open! Our hours will be as follows:

Sunday Noon-7PM

Monday 4:00 PM - Midnight

Tuesday 1:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Wednesday Noon - 10:00 PM

Thursday 1:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Friday Noon - Midnight

Saturday 1:00 PM - Midnight

We have made some changes in accordance with the City of Joplin's City Council. We have placed plexiglass barriers at the front counter, service bar, and snack bar registers to protect not only our employees, but our customers as well. Groups cannot be larger than 15 people. After each group is done bowling, we ask that they leave their house balls on the ball return so they can be disinfected before we return them to the rack. The tables, chairs, and consoles will also be disinfected when they are finished. Commonly touched surfaces such as door handles, hand rails, and bathrooms will also be disinfected regularly.

We appreciate everyone's patience and loyalty during these trying times, and as the local, state, and federal governments relax their recommendations, we will too.

Thank you,

Staff and Management of 4th Street Bowl
