About Primrose Lanes

Primrose Lanes Restaurant and Bowling Club is an entertainment spot located on North Primrose Drive in Orlando.

This place got its start as Colonial Lanes in 1959, and when it got sold to a self-storage developer and neared the brink of destruction, the community in the Milk District came together and brought it back to life.

According to its website, this place’s previous 32 lanes were no more thanks to work by past developers. All that remained were eight lanes, and Team Market Group worked with what they had to repurpose the site and honor the building’s past.

Now, the team behind Primrose Lanes seeks to “provide feel-good dining and unique entertainment in the Milk District.”
