Folks go to Rock & Bowl for one of two reasons: to bowl, or to listen/dance to music. I go to listen and dance. This is an amiable, friendly place. Management and staff are friendly. The music is high quality and of varied styles: swing, zydeco, blues, New Orleans rhythm & blues, jazz, eclectic. A unique venue where bowlers and... More

Such a fun night. Geno Delafose and the French Rockin Boogie band are great musicians and play for a long time, a fantastic chance to see zydeco music. The venue has pretty cheap beers and a good relaxed vibe!

Went on a Thursday night and they had a Cajun band playing. It was really fun because the kids were bowling and some were dancing while the adults were able to enjoy an adult atmosphere. Good time.

We have been coming to the Rock n Bowl for 26 years. It is always a fun place. Music, booze and Bowling is a fun combination.. It is a party. So lively and fun! It is a different vibe since the new location....cleaner both literally and figuratively. The plus to this is the food is a lot better. It is... More

Go where the locals go! We lucked out and made it there on Zydeco night. Lots of good music, bowling and dancing. Friendly people, very nice bar and more than decent bowling alley food but Commander's Palace, its not! I felt very comfortable there with my teenagers though we did leave about 9:30pm because it had been a long day!... More

We had a private party at this interesting venue. Most of it is like a big barn but they had an excellent zydeco band with lots of room for dancing. The food was good and plentiful, as were the drinks. It is a fun place to hang out, though we never got to bowl because they are few lanes for... More

We've been to New Orleans several times and this time brought friends who have never heard of Rock n Bowl, and were a little skeptical...but told us later it was the highlight of their trip! Dancing to Zydeco bands on Thursday night, and ice cold drinks and beer...and of course bowling. All in a big old airy 1940's bowling alley.... More

Very weird concept, bowling and performers, but it works! Saw two great performers, didn't bowl but could have. Great music and lots of dancing. We were able to get there on the bus from canal st, downtown, but got a cab home as it was quite late. Great value for the price, $20 I believe. Will definitely go back next... More
