In an interview with Bham Now, Samji said Whole Foods’ location is about 50,000 square feet. He also described 810 Billiards & Bowling as “high-end bowling, far from your typical bowling alley.”
“This concept is very unique, with great restaurants and multiple attractions.”
The site has:
- sports bar
- game station
- classic bowling alley
- Board game
- Of course there is also a pool table!
Samji wants to open up to eight 810 Billiards & Bowling locations in the area.
His group expects to work closely with the City of Hoover on zoning issues that may arise for Whole Foods sites that have been closed since March 2020.
