    Awesome Bowling Alley but be prepared to spend some dough. It's 40 dollars an hour for a lane so keep track of your time. Food is amazing though. Get the fried chicken.... Read more

    As Naveen says, try the Bourbon Nutella Milkshake. For the faint of boubon heart, get if with one shot.

    Awesome music venue. Get there early to make sure you get a lane close to the stage. You won't regret it.

    You might want to leave your kids at home. I saw three toddlers nearly get trampled. By their parents' friends. It's a child, not an accessory.

    Always great to bowl and food amazing. But so expansive, $200 in 1.5 hr to play 1 set of bowl and having snacks and beer

    i've actually never bowled here. i have though, seen some great live music (worth it if there's a cover!), eaten some delicious food (please order fried chicken) and had thirst quenching libations.

    Questlove’s Thursday night’s DJ set is a solid bet. Order the fried chicken. It’s a bit pricey, at $22 but it's a vast portion and a miracle combination of perfect crispness and no grease.

    One of the best and most unique live music venues in New York City. Great floor to listen to the music, but even better to listen when bowling.

    It is the best fried chicken I have ever had; but, I always try to save room for the chocolate chip bread pudding a la mode. Crazy good.

    Scowl at the wait to bowl and then the 2 hour limit that is strictly enforced. And then go to the Gutter two streets over to bowl.

    Did you know that you can burn up to 300 calories bowling for an hour, that’s enough to burn off the Brooklyn Lager you just downed. Gutter balls and strikes count for the same amount of calories too!

    Takes bowling alley concept to new level of hang-out. And there’s different zones for eating, drinking, dancing, or bowling.
