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.
Recently Gov Kemp announced that bowling alleys, restaurants, and other public establishments could reopen in the next several days. While we are quite eager to return to The Comet, we disagree with the governor that it is now safe to do so. We feel that it is too early in the progression of the pandemic to invite staff and guests to gather, socialize, and bowl together. We are continually monitoring the situation, and will base any decision to move toward opening on clear and consistent recommendations of the medical and public health experts in the field.
We have every intention of getting to the other side of this health crisis and opening the Comet doors again for fun and games, but at a point when we can all feel confident that the health risk is minimal. Thanks for your continued support and understanding. Please stay safe, and we hope to see you then.
