is located in the former Suburban Lanes space, a 1950’s era bowling alley that served the Decatur and surrounding area for close to 60 years. Remodeled and renamed in early 2016, The Comet retains much of the glory of its original splendor, while adding a few new touches that reflect more modern sensibilities. Food and beverage service features from-scratch pizza, burgers, sandwiches, salads and apps, excellent cocktails, and a 16 beer draught menu, as well as a host of bottled and canned beers. In addition to the original 32 lanes of bowling, The Comet features a retro game room, a birthday party room, 3 dart lanes, and a large bar. Come in to bowl, or if you just want to hang out in a great space where folks are having fun, watch a game on the TV and enjoy the offerings from bar and kitchen. The Comet also provides an ideal venue for parties or team-building events, including pre-made and customized packages (found on our website). The Comet is 21 and up from 10pm until close.
The Comet will close at 6:00 PM on Sundays in October, with the kitchen closing at 5:00.
Also, the Comet kitchen will open at 5:00 PM Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for the time being.

Change starts with each of us.
Since the brutal murder of George Floyd, millions across the country have risen in protest of the long-standing violence and injustice directed at people of color. Along with those protesters, we believe it is time for real, systemic change. We established The Comet in 2016 as a gathering place where everybody, regardless of skin color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or religion, can enjoy bowling and good company. We have striven to treat everybody who walks in our door, guests and staff, with the respect and dignity that we all deserve. We’ve stumbled in that effort at times, learned much in the process, and continue on that journey.
As we get ready to reopen in the near future, we recommit to those values. We acknowledge that we still have much to learn, and that to learn we need to listen to those who have experienced discrimination and injustice based on race firsthand.
To start, we lend our voice to those demanding the confederate monument on Decatur square be removed immediately, and that the Decatur and Dekalb County schools implement vigorous anti-racist programs in all grades as part of their core curriculum.
Nobody’s free until we are all free.
