Pooler has an all new and exciting entertainment venue. In fact, there is nowhere like it in the surrounding area. Premier Bowl & Bistro, located next to their sister property, Frames n’ Games, recently opened its doors to the public. As it is a family-owned business, Christopher, “Chris,” Smith, the sales and marketing manager, feels that the “personal touch makes a difference,” and he is enthusiastic about what is to come.
“Once people know we’re here, it’s really going to take off. I’m excited,” he said.
Understanding that Frames n’ Games often “caters to kids,” Premier was designed with adults in mind. It gives adults the option to be in a more mature environment, especially since there is a 21- year-old admittance requirement after 6 p.m. each day.
“We want to create an entertainment destination for adults…the ultimate adult entertainment destination. We still welcome kids before 6 p.m. But, of course, we do have the curfew after 6 p.m. Anyone can come in; we don’t discourage anyone,” Chris stated.
Chris and the entire team want customers to feel welcome and to have an incomparable experience when they come in. He believes that this is only accomplished through superior customer service.
“Of course, we do want top-of-the-line customer service. With anywhere you go, if you don’t have good customer service, you shouldn’t even open your doors,” he said.
The Bowl and More
Premier features a 14-lane bowling alley, but not just any bowling alley. It was created to provide more of an upscale vibe. The couches have a luxurious feel with built-in device outlets. There is a touch screen on every lane, where customers may conveniently place their orders. More so, there is “cosmic bowling” after 10 p.m. every Friday and Saturday, where regular lights dim and black lights come out, “along with lasers, disco lights and strobe lights.” The place is filled with music coming from a “state of the art sound system.”
Customers can relax and enjoy some games of pool as they take a load off in the laid-back atmosphere. If games are more desired, they can visit the arcade, which already includes a variety of fun and engaging games; however, there are even more to come.
The Bistro
The staff welcomes visitors to come with a big appetite. The menu is filled with an assortment of delicious dishes. Pizzas, made your way, include: Hawaiian, Greek, Meat Lovers and Buffalo, all made with a variety of taste buds in mind; “fresh pizza dough is made daily.”
“We have a brand-new brick pizza oven back there,” Chris said. “It’s awesome!”
Flavorful wings can be tossed in a variety of sauces, whether parmesan, lemon pepper, barbeque, teriyaki, buffalo or hot; the pecan smoked wings are certainly palate pleasers.
Most cannot resist the delectable, all beef Angus Burgers made of a “short rib and brisket blend,” including: the Portobello Mushroom Burger, a grilled burger covered with grilled Portobello Mushrooms; the “Mac,” topped with bacon and mac -n- cheese; the Jalapeno Bacon Burger, covered with fresh jalapenos and crispy bacon, or even the “Beyond Burger,” an “all-natural, soy-based protein burger.”
For customers who don’t quite want a big burger, the sandwiches, made of “antibiotic and hormone-free” meat, are the next best thing; enjoy the Philly Cheese made from shaved ribeye or the seasoned and grilled chicken sandwich. Further, the variety of creamy pastas (shrimp, chicken, veggie and salmon) are tongue-teasers.
There are various other menu items to choose from, including: naan tacos, fish and chips, sliders, quesadillas, chicken fingers, nachos, giant pretzels, hot dogs and fries/tots and curds. Customers who want to walk on the lighter side can enjoy fresh mixed salads. For those with a bit of a sweet tooth, both a creamy key lime pie and a decadent two-layer chocolate cake are great desert options. Moreover, the space is equipped with a “beautiful, large, granite-top” full bar for customers.
The staff at Premier wants to provide their customers with an “atmosphere centered around comfort and fun…a well-rounded environment, letting them escape the worries of the day.” That is why they feel customers should come in and see for themselves.
“Once you come and start having fun, you’re going to fall in love with it,” Chris commented. He explained that there were “regulars” after only the first week of business.
A banquet hall is also available to rent for private or corporate events. Large groups are welcomed. The team wants to strive to accommodate customers as much as possible, even by customizing offers to best satisfy their interests and needs.
Besides further developing several areas within the new business, the management team has various other goals in mind for the near future to provide customers’ overall entertainment pleasure, including the possibility of showcasing various bands for their enjoyment.
The team understands that people should always be one of the biggest focal points of any business.  That said, they recognize the value of community involvement. Chris believes that participating in value-driven and noteworthy fundraising activities within the community is a big part of having a successful business.
“If you’re not involved within the community, people really don’t appreciate the value of your business,” he said.
Premier Bowl & Bistro is driven to provide a mature, all-in-one “entertainment destination” for adults, while consistently offering all customers a unique entertainment getaway.
