Opened in 1961, Futurama Bowl was an mainstay in San Jose, CA as both a bowling alley and entertainment venue. The Bowling alley featured 42 lanes of what was then state-of-the-art lanes. The iconic sign in front was a classic example of Googie architecture. The front entrance was covered by two large, domed structures.
Somewhat in conflict with the modern, space-age look of the bowling alley was the restaurant/lounge called The Magic Carpet Room. Adorned with over 470,000 beads, the Arabian Knights themed nightspot was at odds with the Futurama Bowling Alley Space-Aged theme. Also in the complex was a fitness center called The Glamorama Room. Not sure what that might have been like, but I expect that glamor and bowling maybe went together somehow.
