SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A plan to a build lounge-style venue with a video-game arcade and eight-lane bowling facility on the top floor of a building in the Santa Fe Railyard would return the sport to the state Capitol for the first time since 2008.

Railyard developer Allen Branch says the new 20,000-square-foot entertainment business also will feature food reminiscent of what was served at the Estrada Room, a dark, smoky annex to the old Coronado Lanes bowling alley.

Coronado Lanes was a hot spot for decades before closing in the 1980s. The Santa Fe New Mexican reports the owners of the Holiday Bowl and Leisure Bowl in Albuquerque will run Ringside Bowl Bar & Grub as their third venue.
