    Gigs most nights which you HAVE to pay entry for even if you just want to bowl. Half price bowling after 6pm on Sundays.

    Huge place, tons of lanes and they have live shows and events

    Overpriced hipster bs. Live music is good, but they nickel and dime you for everything and the servers are completely rude

    Fantastic place to see a show or bowl a frame, or both. The food is also very solid, particularly the fried chicken meal.

    Brooklyn Bowl is hipster central, um, in a good way. Part bar, part concert space, part bowling alley, it'll have whatever you're looking for on a Saturday night - for a price. Read more

    Food From Blue Ribbon. Plush Leather Seating. Mention "Sunday Night Special" at Shoe Desk For 50% Off A Lane After 8PM on Sundays.

    I'm not sure which was worse. The TSA level security that wanded me head to toe and patted me down before entering the venue or the Secret Service level security task force who monitored the audience.

    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

    The dancefloor and bar can be awkward spaces when crowded, and the bouncers inside are mean cattle herders. :-(

    Awesome selection of Brooklyn beers from breweries like Brooklyn Brewery and Coney Island Brewery. Get a pitcher to share when bowling.

    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.

    Bit of a rip-off. You have to pay the cover to go bowling. And it's pretty much just your standard bowling alley. But probably nice if you stay for the music.

    Great spot for bowling - sometimes have the pay a cover if there's a band playing.

    Its a cool spot to go and kick it. They have different events so be weary of the cover charge but a fun spot to bowl overall.

    SUPER expensive and very little diversity in live music. Same DJs and Jam Bands week in and out. If you want to spend min. $100 on a night out to get chicken grease on a bowling ball this is for you.

    Fun concert venue, but the crowd is hit or miss (c'mon, you're here to see a show, not make out the whole time). Beer is expensive, too.

    My favorite place on earth. Combines everything that makes for a good time: fun, bowling, great food (from Blue Ribbon), great beer (BK Brewery), and they score some of the best live acts around.

    If you get there & coat check is full, throw your coat on one of the ledges by the exits near the stage. One of the security staff will take it away to the lost and found & you can pick it up after ;)
