This is a car or cab ride from the usual tourist spots, but a totally worthwhile nighttime activity. How it ranks at number 65 on TA's list of New Orleans attractions is baffling. Or perhaps it's all part of the locals' master plan to keep a slice of their local goodness all to themselves. I'm sure every day is a... More

This was my best experience in NOLA! An odd combination of bowling alley, bar, restaraunt and huge dance floor with live music 7 nights a week exceeded my imagination! We were tipped off by a local on the way into NOLA. They have a different genre of live music every night! Thursday is Zydeco night! We were treated to a... More

Fun night for a group of 22 (we went over after dinner at Ye Olde College Inn). Bowling, dancing and drinking. Something for everyone.

UNGODLY LOUD and CROWDED empty cavern of a space with really BAD band, only a few picnic tables for seating and a completely unjustified $10 cover charge extracted by a particularly nasty old hag at the door. Don't know what the drinks cost cuz I didn't stay long enough to bother standing in line at the bar to get one.

What a neat place! We started the night by taking the St. Charles streetcar to South Carrolton and had a drink at Cooter Brown's, another cool place. Then a cab (which the bartender will call for you) to Rock n Bowl. $10 cover for Kermit Ruffins. He's why we picked that night. You can get tix for the "will call"... More

Thursday night with Nathan and the Zydeco Cha-Chas at Rock-N-Bowl was the most fun we had in New Orleans. It has been more than six months since our visit, and we are still reminiscing about what a blast it was! We got tickets in advance online, but were so exhausted from sightseeing that we almost skipped it. It was more... More

Got back from New Orleans last Monday night. Although my wife and I have visited numerous times, this was the first time I had a chance to go to Rock n Bowl. I went with a friend of mine and his wife. My wife will have to wait until we go back as she had to babysit our 70 pound... More

This is a "must do" stop when you are in NOLA. Thursday is Zydeco and you can hear some local music. If you don't know how to dance to Zydeco music, just drink a little more and it gets easier. And there are plenty of people there who will show you. Make sure you wear the right shoes. Take a... More

My wife wanted to see some zydeco music. She thought we should go to the Rock n Bowl. I wasn't sure about the bowling alley. It was much more than a bowling alley. There were 12 lanes along one wall and the rest of the huge building was a big bar and a stage and a huge dance floor. Every... More
