Roll with us down memory lane to learn about us...

We can thank our German heritage for our obsession with strikes and spares. Bowling has endured through many changes, but our commitment to fun remains. Lanes are oiled daily with tender, love, and care. Shoes are still rentals, and the sweet satisfaction of pins toppling and celebratory high-fives is timeless. 39,000 square feet of fun is found at JB’s on 41, featuring bowling, game room, volleyball, restaurant, and bar. JB’s on 41 has a colorful history, and we're always innovating. To continue learning about us, please interact with the tabs below to see how JB’s on 41 has transformed from a couple’s entrepreneurial dreams into Milwaukee’s premier party place.

Before bowling centers, lanes are tucked into tavern and church basements. Wanting their own place to freely bowl, Deddo and Erv Raasch open the center in the 1950s, calling it Olympic Recreation, which is later shortened to Olympic Lanes. Brunswick supports the center’s development and still assists JB’s on 41 today. With 24 lanes, Olympic is one of the first centers in Milwaukee to feature automatic pinsetters. In 1975, Jerry Laczniak takes over as owner, adding lanes 25-36. Jeff and Cindy Vitale run a tight ship for 20 years from 1982-2002, adding 5 sand volleyball courts and game room, where guests exchange quarters for rounds of pinball.

​Current proprietor David Bardon takes over in November 2002. He owns 3 other family fun centers in Wisconsin. In 2012, the center undergoes a massive renovation, transforming Olympic Lanes into JB’s on 41. During this process, lane 11 is lost in favor of a wall to create the Suite 41 lounge. With 10 custom cherry wood luxury lanes in Suite 41 and 25 traditional synthetic lanes, JB’s on 41 is the only hybrid center in Milwaukee. The JB in our name comes from owner David Bardon’s family, including wife Janell, children Jeremy, Jessica, Joshua, and grandchildren Jared and Jenna. 41 comes from historic State Highway 41 that stretches from Upper Michigan to Miami, Florida.
