July 7, 2012 was Brooklyn Bowl’s 3rd birthday.
It took us exactly two years to build Brooklyn Bowl from a dusty old warehouse (the former Hecla Iron Works) into the venue you know today. When we opened in 2009, our mission was to design an experience unlike any other. We did this through quality design, unbeatable Blue Ribbon food and Brooklyn-brewed beers, and of course, the music. Then we employed the then-emerging principles of social media so that we could share the experience with others, and merge the offline with the online.
The next three years have, in just about every imaginable way, exceeded any of our dreams or expectations. So we made this infographic (designed and developed by Learned Evolution) to tell the story of just how amazing a ride it’s been thus far.
The infographic that resulted mirrors the BB experience: it’s interactive, it was crafted with love, and most of all, it’s FUN! So click around, experience it for yourself, and then share it with others. Enjoy!
“This (Brooklyn Bowl’s) is everything most infographics are not and hopefully what they will be in the future.” - Jason Oberholtzer (Forbes)
“We’ve come to a point at TNW where we pretty much ignore every infographic we receive, but …Brooklyn Bowl’s graphic was not only handsomely designed, it was also interactive.” - Harrison Weber (The Next Web)
