MADISON, NJ - After a long, highly anticipated opening 'STRYXE' comes through and redefines everything you conceptually think of in a bowling alley.   

Bowling balls...check, lanes...check, food and beer...check check...now throw everything you think about bowling alleys out the window and you have the mega entertainment venue that is STRYXE.

The new space holds an appeal to several different markets by design, including families, adults and corporate clientele. It is a place where people can come in to relax, have fun and enjoy themselves, not just bowl.

Two large u-shaped bars flank either end of the space, serving craft brews on tap as well as crafted signature cocktails.  There is even a "Pregatini" on the menu, a mock-tail of sorts for those expecting.  STRYXE also features a solid wine-by-the-glass menu, more in line with a great restaurant rather than the old local lanes.

Clientele can eat gourmet comfort food and drink craft cocktails anywhere throughout the facility, including by two indoor fireplaces. This is a not your typical plastic cup and cold pizza bowling establishment.

To keep everyone happy and active the venue has 20 bowling lanes, an interactive arcade and classic parlor games including pool tables and shuffle board. All amusements leverage a pre-paid card that is reloadable and stores points earned. Points can be redeemed for merchandise right at guest services.

"The project is the result of hard work of a lot of great people.  We aimed for a sleek modern design that was visually appealing and achieved it through the creative mind of Adam Zangrilli of Zangrilli Design (http://www.zangrillidesign.com/)," said the new owners.

"There was a high focus on hand craftsmanship: all the banquette seating is custom made to fit our design.  Our tables are made from the old bowling lane wood, the new equipment is all state of the art."

The focus is not just on the entertainment.  Food plays a major role in this operation. 

Under the direction of Executive Chef Rolf Baumann, a menu was designed to be consistent with STRYXE boutique hand crafted concept.  All menu items are made to order and prepared in house.  The vast majority of the menu items are made on-site including pizza dough, fresh mozzarella, hand cut fries and fresh baked bread. Chef Baumann plans to source ingredients locally whenever possible.    

The menu features a modern spin on old classics, like the Ultimate Mac & Cheese with brie, gruyere and cheddar as well as some new soon to be favorites like the chicken waffle bites with drizzled honey. 

To go along with their hand crafted concept, STRYXE features a wood-fired pizza oven. By the pizza bar you will find Master Pizzaiolo, Nicolo Fazio, making signature 'La Tabisca' which is a unique pizza style originating in Sciacca, Sicily that is characterized by its hand-crafted oblong shape and fire-cooked wheat crust.

The new space is not only conducive to a great night out for families and adults but was designed for corporate events and large private parties.  Large private rooms and audio-visual presentation equipment are all ready for a meeting or event throughout the facility. 

"The hope is to draw in both corporations and local businesses who want an easy and unique place to hold a meeting or team building event," the STRYXE Management Team added. "You will be able to rent out some or all of the private space, it was designed to be very flexible and has high technology capabilities."

In the near future, patrons will also be able to host private events at the lanes or at the bar.

STRYXE, located at 300 Main Street in Madison, NJ is open 7 days a week, 

Visit www.stryxe.com or call 973-377-8919 for more information.
