Nestled away in the nooks and crannies of our fair city are tidbits of iconic Austin culture. One of those tidbits is quietly tucked away on Grover St.,  across the street from McCallum High School in North Austin. Dart Bowl is more than a bowling alley. It’s an Austin icon. To be in business for 56 years is no small feat. Part of that success has got to be chalked up to Dart Bowl’s involvement with the community."
