New East Falls gym/bowling alley not far off now

    A few months ago, I wrote about a new gym and bowling alley planned in East Falls. A reader wants to know if it’s still a go.

    A few months ago, I wrote about a new gym and bowling alley planned for the Falls Center, off Henry Avenue in East Falls. Called Sweat Fitness and Frames, it’ll be owned by Scott Caplan, founder of the chain of local gyms, and feature both a full-service members-only workout space and a 10-lane bowling alley.

    I received an email from a reader asking whether the new bowling alley in East Falls was still a go, and when it would open. Here’s what Caplan told me this week:

    “Things are moving along, we have opened our sales office and have signed up hundreds of members already. We plan on being opened by the end of April,” he wrote in an email.

    We’ll be sure to get a look inside soon and keep readers updated on the grand opening.
