Fully Reopened

Since the Los Angeles mandate to fully reopen was enacted (June 2021), Shatto 39 Lanes has been fully reopen. After having to close every other lane or even sometimes 2 lanes between parties for the last 18 months, Shatto 39 Lanes is now back in full swing (masks still required).

The entertainment centers such as the bars, arcade, and billiards room are all fully reopen with no restrictions to capacity due to COVID-19. As Shatto 39 Lanes struggles to bounce back due to the changes in consumer behavior specifically with hands-on experiences/businesses, we would like to encourage everyone who is vaccinated to go and show your support for Shatto 39 Lanes and its comeback post COVID-19!

Our Favorites

When you visit Shatto 39 Lanes be sure to check out the arcade, coffee shop, bar and of course the billiards hall! If you like the occasional greasy concession food, try out the mozzarella sticks, they seem to always be pretty good! Be sure to use a fork so you’re not slicking all that grease onto the lanes. Bowling and deep fried foods are an American past time after all.
