In the heart of Williamsburg on Wythe Avenue by the water, and right next door to Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn Bowl is a massive touchstone of fun and entertainment in the borough. A night out bowling has never offered so much: an extensive ingredient-driven menu from Blue Ribbon Restaurant Group, a full performance venue featuring premier musical acts every night of the week, and, oh yah, bowling.
You’ve also never seen bowling so cushy: automatic scoring, nightclub-esque light shows and lane-side bar service make turn the game into a full on party. Their eight, sizeable high-definition screens over the pins add just a little bit more entertainment at this hotbed destination. Between turns, guests kick back on the lush leather Chesterfield sofas behind each lane and indulge in snacks, meals, beer pitchers and cocktails.
Blue Ribbon, an award-winning New York-based restaurant group, serves hearty comfort food like smoked bbq wings, French bread pizza, and fried chicken. Feeling a little fancy? Order up the smoked fish spread with rye toast, or smoked rainbow trout salad. For dessert, try the fresh berry sundae, or Bourbon St. shake with nutella and whiskey.
The options at Brooklyn Bowl are seemingly endless, and the entertainment lineup is always changing with emerging and distinguished acts alike. On most Thursday nights, you can head over and boogie down to Bowl Train, a fun night of throwback jams spun by iconic Roots drummer Questlove.
