Play Bocce Ball at a Nearby Restaurant

Did you know that bocce ball traces back to ancient Egypt? Archaeologists discovered a tomb painting depicting two boys playing the game. The sport later became popular around the world, and today there are 25 million enthusiasts across the United States. If you would like to play, visit one of these destinations near our Uptown Dallas apartments where you’re sure to enjoy an evening of fun and food:

The Grove at Harwood 

Called an outdoor oasis, The Grove at Harwood is where locals gather for a night of games. Friendly dogs can join in the action, and when visitors aren’t on the court, they can relax on the hammocks. In addition to bocce ball, there’s also volleyball, cornhole, giant Jenga, and so much more. Hungry guests can enjoy a juicy burger with a side of fried onion rings. For dessert, try the restaurant’s famous snow cones served with or without alcohol. Choices include Cheeky Cherry, Birthday Girl, and the Cha-Cha.

Bryan Street 

At Bryan Street, it’s all about exceptional pizza and ice-cold beer. It has one of the best pet-friendly patios in Dallas and is a proud supporter of Major League Bocce. The outdoor space features picnic tables, towering trees, and twinkling lights. The bocce court draws a crowd, and visitors can also spend time inside playing pool or watching Dallas’ sports teams in action. Pizzas include Hawaiian, Waylon’s Special, and The Lou. They pair well with a pint of Lakewood Temptress or Deep Ellum IPA. 


With an outdoor patio, bocce courts, and bowling lanes, it’s no wonder that Pinstripes is one of the most popular destinations in the Metroplex. The courts and lanes feature plush seating and game-side food service. The onsite Italian-American bistro prepares the bold meals from the finest, freshest ingredients. Dishes include spaghetti & meatballs, maple glazed salmon, and espresso crusted filet mignon.
