We visit every year when we come for Jazz Fest, and we're never disappointed! Only wish we lived closer. Where else does a $25 ticket get you a show that starts at 8pm and ends after 230am!?! The owner John is always a gracious host to our group from St. Louis! Can't wait to visit again!

I went here during Jazz fest. Wasn't sure what to expect. First, it is a bowling alley where you can bowl if you wish. Sort of a throwback atmosphere to the sixties. How cool is it to bowl and listen to great live music. There is a large bar with a good selection of beer and any mixed drink you... More

I've been coming here every time I visit the city for 15 years ( even before the change of location) . NEVER disappointed . They book the absolute best acts . John ( the owner ) is always friendly . Joe ( the manager ) is a real hero . We were stuck tonight at the Amanda Shaw shoe (... More

Even if you can't get your guy up to dance. He will standing bowling, and when you have been married a long time, that is close enough sometimes! The music a good enough. The beer is beer enough. Bring a group. Go dance with your Women Friends and Have your Spouse bowl your frame. Everyone is happy and doing something... More

After looking for a music venue to take three teenage girls, we decided to head out to Rock n Bowl on our first night in NOLA. We were not disappointed ! Thursday night zydeco was the best way to start our weekend. The music and dancing was great followed by bowling while watching the Big Lebowski on loop. The girls... More

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
