North Bowl is a fun spot, that is not your average bowling alley. The staff is friendly, and the menu includes options you don't typically see at a bowling alley. You have to try the Malbec Margarita - there's nothing like it!

North Bowl is always a really fun time. They have a great atmosphere, bar and the food is good too. The service is top notch. Best place around to do some drinking and bowling.
