    The owners imported the lanes at this bowling alley bar hybrid from an old-school alley in Burlington, Iowa, to add to the vintage feel.

    For the bowling purists out there, go here instead of the trendier Brooklyn Bowl nearby. Grab some friends, a pitcher of Victory Prima, and avoid the lanes with poles.

    Save beef jerky and candy bars, there is no food at The Gutter. You have to order delivery. From a pizza standpoint, if you're not ordering from Best Pizza or Fornino, you've just rolled a gutterball.

    Best Bowling in the city... Avoid the B&T at the other Brooklyn Bowl-ing venue.

    Register for a lane early and then kill time playing pool.

    Eli H. · March 22, 2012

    now there is a back room for shows. walk to the left like you're going to the bathroom and you'll find an awesome venue with a bar. you'll be thankful you won't have to wait at the other one.

    Go to Gutter and get a lane and several pitchers of beer. Bowl you heart out, bonus points if you come straight from a wedding and are in a suit and tie.

    Ratchet as shit in the best way possible. I've only been blackout here.

  • Sam S.

    The more dents the ball, the more strikes you get. Also- don't eat with, or lick, the fingers you bowl with. Trust me. The bathroom sinks are the least used in Brooklyn.

    With 8 full vintage bowling lanes and a separate sit-down bar area with pool and a dozen craft beers on tap, The Gutter is a great destination for an activity-packed night.

  • Spotted by Locals - city guides by locals

    Not very cheap, but if you go on the early or late side, then you can hit happy hour which gets you $ 1 off beers and 2-for-1 bowling on Fridays from 14:00 – 18:00 and Sunday – Thursday after 01:00. Read more

    It's small and divey and the lanes are a bit slow, but they've got great beer, ample restrooms, a pool table, and bubble hockey!

    Amazing untill they decide you are too 'wasted' to bowl. Watch out for the girl with the curly fro she will eat you for breakfast.

    If it's busy, assume at least 15 minutes per number on the ticket counter. They'll tell you it'll move faster, just watch...

    Brooklyn Bowl is for dicks

    Vaughn A. · October 31, 2013
  • Jordan T.

    Earlier the better chance of getting a lane, get a bag of pretzels, a Narragansett, kick back. Apparently the vintage looking lanes are from a bowling alley in rural ohio that was shut down in the 70s

    Jordan T. · April 27, 2013
  • DK F.

    Looking for alleged rats running thru bar... Randomly walked in on some amazing music downstairs... Better down here than upatairs.. Pants Exploder... Music to match the name ... Awesome

    This place is hot, it's a dive meets bowling. It couldn't be more fun. You bring your own eats, but get your beer and wine at the friendly bar. Cheap and awesome! A great crowd. You will love it!
