English: Constructed in 1958, and operated by Japanese businessmen, the Holiday Bowl became an ethnically diverse community center to area residents. It was originally open 24 hours a day to accommodate the irregular schedules of many industrial workers, especially aerospace employees. Though ineligible for the National Register of Historic Places, the Holiday Bowl is locally important for its historic and cultural associations with the Japanese-American and African-American communities of Los Angeles. Built in the Crenshaw district of Los Angeles, the Holiday Bowl is significant as a local landmark to the rise of Nisei bowling and the development of new venues for social life in the post-World War II period. The "attached" coffee shop stands out as a good architectural representative of the Googie style.
