Profile

This venue is closed.

Dating from 1938, Bowlmor was the site of television's first bowling shows during the late '50s. But after a multimillion-dollar renovation, this landmark to the golden age of bowling feels contrived. One step away from being a 42nd Street theme bar, it sometimes functions as an Elks Club for media professionals, what with all the corporate bashes (and, once upon a time, launch parties) thrown here. Still, it's a sporty alternative to the usual East Village club circuit. Even if you don't feel like crashing pins, enjoy a Jetsons moment in Bowlmor's restored retro lounge, done up with large orange and brown vinyl booths and wooden-topped tables.

Extra

Legend has it that Richard M. Nixon knocked some pins here. And when the Rolling Stones stopped by after a show, Keith Richards threw his ball clear across the lanes.

Specials
Night Strikes on Mondays from 9pm-1am; $24 a person for unlimited bowling.
