OUR HISTORY

In 1977, Glenn Yasuda opened a small neighborhood market in the converted building that formerly housed Berkeley Bowl bowling alley and Berkeley Bowl was born.

In 1999, we moved into a renovated former Safeway site at 2020 Oregon Street, which gave us the ability to truly expand all areas of our growing business.

In June of 2009, our second store, Berkeley Bowl West, opened in a new modern building at 920 Heinz Avenue. Berkeley Bowl West has a café that features Berkeley Bowl Brand coffee and espresso, as well as Japanese cuisine featuring chefs from B-Dama and Delage Oakland.

Berkeley Bowl West also features expanded parking areas, including an underground parking lot below the main building.
