Lucky Strike Lanes

For over 70 years, Lucky Strike has been the cornerstone for Candlepin Bowling in the City of Lynn, offering 34 lanes of bowling.


Founded in 1937, Michael Faia converted an automobile dealership into an 18 lane bowling center.


In 1968, with a growing popularity for Candlepin Bowling, Lucky Strike added a second floor and 16 additional bowling lanes.


It was in the Faia family for 63 years when in March of 2000, Lucky Strike was sold to long time employee, Manager, and Candlepin Bowling Hall of Fame inductee, Jim Barber.  The family owned and operated tradition continues with The Barber Family.


In a city that was once home to more than a dozen bowling centers, Lucky Strike is now only one of two bowling centers remaining in Lynn, and is the second largest bowling center on the North Shore.
