Tucked between tourist stalwarts Sardi's and Carmine's, the midtown location of this bowling alley-cum-nightclub seems, from the street, almost unobtrusive, its only exterior concession to the glitz of Times Square a twenty-foot animatronic neon dandy in an orange tux. Inside, however, it's another story. Comprehensively decorated on a Big Apple theme—even the staircase is modeled to mimic a suspension bridge—the complex boasts seven distinct bowling "lounges," each built around its own NYC caricature: a giant dragon and massive gong in the gold-and-red Chinatown room, Skee-ball and $5 caramel corn in Coney Island, the Central Park room decorated with memorabilia scavenged from Tavern on the Green. Food is all a little bland. There's a small list of sugary cocktails and a serviceable wine list, but come on, this is a bowling alley: sixteen beers on tap, another eleven by the bottle, and plenty of good brown liquors available on the rocks. Order a banana pudding or some boozy "drunken donuts" to wash it down, and go throw some strikes.

Bowling for Grownups

This is a great spot for kids during the day, but after 10 p.m. on Monday, Friday, and Saturday, the complex is 21 and over. Even when the little ones are allowed in, it might not be a good idea for families to request the Old Times Square–themed room, which boasts vintage pornography marquees on the walls and (occasionally manned) stripper poles between the lanes.
