All are welcome to enjoy the laid-back, fun, and easy entertainment with 9 lanes of bowling, a locally-sourced restaurant with delectable California-cuisine, crafted cocktails, and the region’s most fun private event facilities.

DISCOVERY’s doors open at 5pm Thursday & Friday, 12pm on Saturday and 9am on Sunday (we are closed for private events Monday-Wednesday). The patio windows are pushed open, inviting the cool Ventura breeze into the facility and creating a welcome environment. Fun entertainment and team-building opportunities exist for local companies, groups, and private events for the community. We welcome you to come and enjoy great food and drink!

The dining room is available for dinner, with a seasonal menu offering delectable cuisine sourced from Ventura County’s finest purveyors of produce and fresh seafood from Ventura Harbor. The kitchen also serves a limited dinner (late-night) menu until closing each evening. We offer daily drink specials.

A “finger-friendly” bowling menu offering more than just fried foods is available from open to close. Bowling will be integrated into specials to draw guests to the facility and provide a full interactive & fun experience.


Since 1957, this site has operated as a bowling alley. Originally built in 1942 as an A&P Grocery, the building was converted in 1957 when 10 lanes were brought over from next door (now Fuller Paint).

The building was built during WWII, thus no steel was used for the construction. Instead, the Lamella roofing style, which is a mathematical equation in and of itself, spans over 100 ft. at over 28 ft. high without any column support. It’s pretty radical, and we can’t wait for you to see it restored!
