Patrick Lyons, the King of Boston’s nightlife scene, is bringing his upscale bowling entertainment venue, KINGS, to Orlando. Lyons, along with Robert and Tricia Earl, announced today that they are hosting BOWL-ERINA, a night of fun and friends, to celebrate the grand opening of KINGS with all proceeds from the evening benefitting the Orlando Ballet.

KINGS, “A Classy Bowling Joint,” boasts an authentic 60’s midcentury feeling and design, combined with craft beers, cocktails, great food, music and games including 22 lanes, billiards, shuffle board and bocce all housed within a 30,000-square-foot space. With three wildly popular outlets in the greater Boston area, KINGS is ready to introduce upscale bowling to Orlando at the new “I-Drive Live” project.

“We have had our eye on Orlando as a market perfectly suited to what Kings is all about,” said Lyons. “We are honored to be here.”

For the grand opening party, guests will be greeted by klieg lights and red carpet and once inside will enjoy proprietary cocktails—including adult ices, champagne, KINGS culinary team’s special selection of goodies from the kitchen, and lots of fun, games and surprises. Live music will be provided by Central Florida favorite, Rat Pack Band and DJ Carl Christy. Everything—food, drink, live music, bowling shoes, games—is included in the ticket price. From ice sculpture installations, and nostalgic soda and candy stations, no detail has been overlooked for what promises to drive a huge crowd in support of the Orlando Ballet, the venerable organization that will celebrate its 40th anniversary next season. KINGS is generously hosting the entire event so all of the proceeds from the evening will benefit the Orlando Ballet.

“We are so thrilled and honored that our friend Patrick Lyons has chosen to support the Orlando Ballet in this way,” said Robert Earl. “Tricia and I are committed to supporting the arts in our community and are extremely grateful that KINGS is helping us keep the ballet strong with this fun grand opening celebration. We know that KINGS will be hugely successful here in Central Florida and look forward to honing our bowling skills on Patrick’s lanes.”
