Plans have been announced for the space Lucky Strike Social has occupied at Crossgates Mall.

It was announced not too long ago that Lucky Strike Social would be closing, leaving a huge space [that now serves as a bowling alley and music venue] open in Crossgates Mall.  Well, according to a post by, plans are in place for how that huge space is going to be used.  The venue is going to be taken over by Apex Entertainment, who already have a location at Destiny USA in Syracuse.

The new plans still seem to be on par with the 'entertainment' idea, as Apex Entertainment's location in Destiny USA has bowling, laser tag, virtual reality and more.  Plus they also offer a full-service kitchen and food.  I personally am going to miss Lucky Strike, as I enjoyed a lot of concerts at Jupiter Hall and a lot of nights bowling and at events in the venue itself.  It'll be interesting to see how the new location works out, particularly with a Dave & Buster's Sports Bar and Arcade already nearby in the mall.  You can get more info here.
