WINSTED — Laurel Lanes duckpin bowling alley, a town landmark at 266 Main Street, will reopen some time this month under new ownership.
The new owner is Tony Hang, owner of Mama Pho Restaurant which is right nearby the alley at 242 Main Street.
In an interview with the Winsted Phoenix, Hang said that he plans to reopen Papa BoBa, a bubble tea cafe, in the bowling alley.
“I want to keep duckpin bowling in this town going,” Hang said. “Everyone knows about ten pin bowling, but no one knows about duckpin. There’s not too many duckpin bowling alleys left in America, and I want to have a place for kids to play. I’ve had fun playing here, and I think it will be even more fun having bubble tea here.”
Hang originally opened Mama Pho back in 2018.
The bowling alley has been open for decades and was originally operated by the late Angelo Desanti.
Desanti retired after almost 70 years in business in the early part of the 2000s, and the alley sat vacant for years until George Noel, Angelo’s grand nephew, stepped up to the plate to buy the bowling alley with Hausch.
Hausch recently retired and both he and his family moved south.
