Alley Cats: Story of Then & Now
Back to the Beginning:
It all started in 1954 when Putt-Putt was founded in Fayetteville, North Carolina, and it only cost 25¢ per round of golf! The Smith family has been in the business of family entertainment since 1964 starting with Ken Smith, who purchased the first Dallas location of Putt-Putt in 1969. Since then, the family has purchased 2 other locations in Ft. Worth, Texas for a total of 7 locations in the years following 1969.
Putt-Putt has grown from a small family owned business of only golf courses to the center we know and love today! Since 1988, this has grown to include batting cages and eventually arcade games. But, the dream didn’t stop there. The land next to Putt-Putt sat vacant for years until Brian Smith had an epiphany while driving one rainy day in 2003. That was the start of Alley Cats Entertainment, and the 6 ½ acres of fun.
Alley Cats Entertainment made its grand premier on January 18th, 2007 with only 58 employees. Today, Alley Cats Entertainment prides itself on being THE family destination in Arlington. Consistently voted as the top place to host a birthday party, as well as being top ranked on many review sites, it is held in high esteem within the Arlington community. Alley Cats Entertainment has garnered a special place within the community of special needs, and non-profit organizations by always giving back where it counts.
Alley Cats is a 40,000 square foot entertainment center founded in 2007 in Arlington, Texas. Located next door to the historic Putt-Putt of Arlington off of I-20 between Cooper & Bowen Streets. Space for up to 920 as well as private party rooms and a large banquet room are available for any event.
Open every day of the year, Alley Cats houses 24 ten-pin Brunswick A2 Bowling Machines. Alley Cats Snack and Dine-In Kitchen offers traditional bowling alley staples as well as fresh takes on the traditional items. Recently revamped and reimagined, the laser tag arena hosts laser tag battles for up to 30 people every 15 minutes. Housing the hottest new arcade games, and always updating and improving the spacious game room keeps Alley Cats at the top of it’s game.
