created a unique combination of active entertainment and distinctive cuisine
that provides guests with a superior experience. Two recently opened Brunswick's
locations in the Atlanta suburbs of Marietta and Peachtree Corners will be

Brunswick Corporation invented the Cosmic Bowling® experience. Now, a new
generation of leisure bowlers who want a total entertainment experience is
developing; Brunswick's has embraced these changes by offering a comfortable
place to connect with each other in an authentic way and serving an approachable
tavern menu," said Brunswick Bowling President Jim Fox.
Bowling has become the most popular participatory sport for American adults,
with more than 70 million Americans reported bowling at least once in the past
year. Additionally, the number of social bowlers has increased and outpaced
league bowlers. The warm, engaging setting at Brunswick's, and the shareable
cuisine from Tavern '45, embrace this growing group of bowlers who want to
connect actively with friends and colleagues.
Tavern '45, represents the mixture of quality, innovation and fun that Brunswick
Corporation founder, John Brunswick envisioned when he began the Company in
1845. The menu offers fresh and inventive dishes, many designed to share, along
with craft beer and cocktails. Quality ingredients at Tavern '45 and a
comfortable atmosphere make Brunswick's a true destination for upscale bowling
and house-made fare with a twist.
Between frames, guests can enjoy a variety of small plates perfect for sampling
and sharing. Signature dishes include Vietnamese pork belly tacos, a sweet
arugula salad and Jamaican jerk, Korean BBQ and classic wings. Specialty entrees
include the juicy bacon cheddar burger, decadent fried chicken and bacon waffles
and Thai red curry chicken pizza. Guests can also enjoy other elevated American
pub fare such as Blue Moon battered fish and chips, pastrami Reuben panini and
chopped cobb salad. The bar at Tavern '45 offers a selection of local and craft
beers on tap, along with specialty cocktails such as the "moonshiner," with
Midnight Moon cranberry moonshine, apricot brandy, fresh squeezed lemon juice
and simple syrup topped with a splash of wheat beer.
Chipman Design Architecture and Prophet brand strategy consultants were
commissioned by Brunswick to realize its vision for the next evolution in
bowling. The design includes plush furnishings and mood lighting to create an
enhanced ambiance. The Peachtree Corners location features an outdoor patio, as
well as a lofted bar area situated in the middle of the lanes, offering a unique
perspective of the action. Brunswick's showcases upgraded bowling equipment and
a state-of-the-art scoring system, as well as a full-service shoe and ball
