We went after a colleague insisted we check it out. ?uestlove was the DJ! And it was some kind of Jackson 5 tribute. There was old footage of Soul Train on the big screens while everyone danced. One of the best nights out ever! I think the best part was the overall cultural and socio-economic diversity. There just wasn't a... More

Went the day after Christmas for a family reunion/meet up with my aunt uncle and cousins. It was so much fun! The place wasn't crowded at all (probably because of the holiday) and we played two games, drank some beer and danced to the music. I loved the decor and It was really comfortable for hanging out and talking between... More

Not impressed at all with location and that we had to pay cover charge just to get in. Live band. Music okay. Very crowded and not enough room or places to sit. Many people not there to bowl but stand around and drink. Not enough lanes for those who wanted to bowl. Also bowling was expensive. Only thing awesome was... More

This is such great venue and atmosphere! I wondered how bowling + concert would work, but it totally did. I'm putting this place on my list for future concert trips with friends. I really enjoyed myself.

We went to Brooklyn Bowl specifically to see a band. We arrived early enough to grab a few beers and eat before the show. The food was very good and the menu had a decent variety. We did not bowl but have a similar concept bowling alley/ bar in Jacksonville, FL, and Brooklyn Bowl blows. The bar tenders were attentive,... More

As we approach the front door, we were told there is a $10 cover charge and a lively band wll be playing later the night. Fine, $10 no biggie, lets check out... More

Take a good venue for all types of music. Throw in a killer sound system. Add a gourmet kitchen. Then put all of this into a bowling alley and you have the Brooklyn Bowl. Everything in this eclectic place is first class all the way. My brother-in-law had his wedding at this venue. The food was amazing the bowling great... More

First time there and very easy to get to from Times Square by subway. Place was crowded, but the show was great. For those of you who have never been, it truly is a bowling alley that has live music at the same time. Incredible, but true! Bartenders were terrific. Next time I'm in New York, I will be there...
