Morgan Hill Bowl is a multi-purpose entertainment center with myriad games and activities for the whole family. Friends and families trade high-fives and trash talk as they practice their hooks and curves on polished hardwood lanes. Later, things turn psychedelic as music and light shows illuminate the alley during cosmic bowling, which also features music videos projected on drop-down screens.
But the fun and games aren't just limited to bowling?Morgan Hill also features a bocce ball room with well maintained courts and a connected wine bar. For pre- or post-game beer and cocktails, bowlers can head to StriXe Lounge, a 2,000 square foot bar with billiards, darts, and eight flat screen TVs for sports viewing. The bar also hosts regular karaoke nights, during which, guests can belt out their favorite tunes or use the mic to read aloud from a favorite bowling-themed novel.
Expect to discover a new favorite wine every time you visit La Storia. The Enoteca (quite literally a “wine repository”) has more than 360 bottles on it’s shelves, sourced from around the world, plus more than 30 ever-changing varieties available by-the-glass or 3-oz. tasting, so guests can try before they buy.
Happy hour is happier when you can share it with your four-legged friend. From 4 to 6, Tuesday—Friday, Tessora’s patio hosts a “Yappy Hour”, where humans can sip $5 pours and snack on meat and cheese platters, and order their pups a special treat from the doggie menu.
A ceiling of mirrors. A small bouquet of flowers at each table. A breezy, outdoor patio festooned with white trellises and hanging foliage. The decorative accents at the newly redesigned Effie’s Restaurant and Lounge set a handsome backdrop for refined, contemporary American cuisine. In the kitchen, multitalented chefs craft hearty entrees for breakfast, lunch, and dinner—all while juggling wooden mixing spoons. Their culinary repertoire covers everything from brawny burgers topped with mushrooms to sole filets bathing in lemon butter. Effie’s bar and lounge area, meanwhile, morphs into a lively neighborhood hot spot where regulars wet their whistles for karaoke night with sips of beer, specialty cocktails, or wine from Effie’s extensive, five-page drink menu.
Like many success stories, the Core Fitness tale begins when a business executive quit her job to pursue her true dream. For Nanci Mora, her dream was to become a fitness instructor. After 10 years of training and working as a trainer, she began conducting her own Pilates classes for three friends in her home. As word of Nanci's replenishing and invigorating Pilates workouts spread, her class size continued to expand in an inverse relationship to her students’ waistlines.
Today, Nanci continues to teach Pilates at her own professional studio, Core Fitness, where she and a staff of dancers, Pilates instructors, and fitness professionals teach workout classes throughout the week. Amidst the studio's earth-toned walls and towering mirrors, professional Pilates reformer machines help clients tone bodies.
