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.

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.

We were invited to a friend's wedding reception at Rock N Bowl and were a bit leary of such a setting for a reception. Our apprehension was quickly erased when we arrived! There was plenty of good food and drink for everyone! The atmosphere was wonderful! The band - Top Cats - performed and were phenomenal! Thank goodness the dance... More

Went for my first time!!! Thursday is Zydeco night. The web page let's you see who will be playing each night and it allows you to pre-purchase tickets. You did not seem need to print out the receipt as the site suggests, as they had our name on a list.The night we were there, the band started playing at 815,... More

We came here with another couple who had been to New Orleans many times and insisted that we experience this venue. Wow! It's completely over the top! We saw a terrific band, The Boogeymen, perform and clearly by the packed house Rock n Bowl is quite a destination on Saturday night. The two attractions (music + bowling) seem at first... More
