Brooklynites love their neighborhood for its modern takes on old favorites: old-school music halls with 21st-century sound, classic cocktail bars with local, organic ingredients, and bowling alleys emblematic of 1960s blue-collar America, complete with alt-rock DJ nights and live shows.
Brooklyn Bowl offers lanes, concerts, and gourmet food from one of the best restaurants in town all under one roof. Just a mile from our Brooklyn luxury apartments, this will soon become your favorite local hangout.
The bowling alley part of the venue features 16 lanes rented out by the half hour ($25) for up to eight people on a first-come, first-served basis from Monday to Sunday. Lanes can be booked for special events most nights of the week. Shoe rentals are $5 per person.
During the week, bowling starts at 6 p.m. and is reserved for adults aged 21+. On Saturday and Sunday, the venue offers Family Bowl from noon to 5 p.m. – perfect for groups with kids of all ages. Bowling is adult-only on weekend evenings, too.
Food and Drink
This is no nachos-and-cheese bowling alley food – Brooklyn Bowl serves the best of the best. The food at Brooklyn Bowl is by New York City-famous Blue Ribbon, a lively neighborhood pub that serves fresh seafood, oysters, and other classics late into the night in SoHo and Brooklyn.
Try their take on Pigs in a Blanket, a traditional bowling alley hotdog made with mini wagyu beef dogs, bacon-mac-and-cheese balls, or the smoked pork chili-topped nachos. Their signature pizza breads – classic flatbread covered with all your favorite pizza toppings – are always a hit. Staples like ribs, wings, and burgers are just a few more of the menu options.
Beverages flow freely at Brooklyn Bowl, and the full-service bar has plenty of local beers on tap, as well as wine and liquor, to keep your hinges greased. Take a cab from Williamsburg rentals so you can safely enjoy a few.
Shows and Events
Nightly shows featuring a wide variety of artists and genres, including rock and roll, dance parties, and dedicated DJ nights playing the sounds of musical masters, such as Frank Ocean, Tame Impala, and Drake. Come for a show or to bowl – or, ideally, both. Remember: on nights where there is a ticketed show, you must purchase a ticket to enter, even if you came for the 10-pin.
