While visiting a friend I was told we had to experience Rock 'N Bowl since words would not do it justice. Exactly. Imagine a large, open, wooden floored gym with a stage at one end. That somewhat gives you a picture of this unique environment. As you walk down the entry hall you see posters of music past but your... More

My wife and I loved our trip to Rock n Bowl and it's certainly a world away from your usual bowling alley. The live music was great, and the band is set up on a stage right there in the main alley. So you can bowl to your heart's content and still listen to it. The most surprising thing was... More

This place is unbelievable. Clean, well lit, and great music. And there's a bowling alley. It's about a 15 minute ride from the Quarter and on Saturday nights, it's about a $10 cover. We saw Bonerama and they were fantastic. The place is plenty big, so you can spread out if you need a break from dancing. Everyone that works... More

My husband and I recently visited New Orleans and went to the Rock 'n Bowl on a Thursday night! Thursday nights they have live Zydeco music and lots of dancing!! It was such a fun atmosphere of music, dancing, and bowling!

Caught Bad of Doughnuts at the Rock & Bowl. What a fun show! Their Michael Jackson set was killer, oops, Thriller! Love the new venue.

my husband and i went out to this place with some friends that live in Marerro. We didnt want to go to Bourbon or French quarter because of Essence festival and the recent shootings in NOLA> NOLA is one of my happy places, but sometimes trying something new is fun! We had never been here, the band that played was... More

Everyone that likes to dance needs to go to Rock N Bowl for Thursday night Zydeco dancing. Family friendly and plenty of people to dance with if you cannot bring your own partner.

Classic bowling lanes, full bar, good food and dancing to live music! A great place to see, hear and dance to local New Orleans and national musical artists. Eric Lindell was playing the night we were there and the music was fantastic. You could not stand still, whether you were just bopping in place or dancing, with or without a... More

I know that it may seem weird to go to a bowling alley to listen to music, but trust me, you won't regret it. They attract great quality musicians who are fun to listen and dance to. The drinks are reasonable and the bar food is pretty good too. It is a nonsmoking venue and there is a fair amount... More

If you are looking for a fun place to dance and listen to music in New Orleans this is the place to go. There are live local bands almost every night and cover charges are reasonable. There is plenty of parking right outside the building so you don't have to walk too far.
