On the industrial border between Greenpoint and Williamsburg, a few minutes’ walk from the L train’s Bedford stop, is Gutter, a new bar with eight bowling lanes. The retro-rec-room tone is set by comfy pleather captains’ chairs at the bar and hanging stained-glass lamps that advertise blue-collar beers. Even the computer controlling the bowling lanes dates back at least 25 years. The beer selection, however, is more up-to-date. Gutter has twelve craft beers on draft (from $5 a pint) as well as a full bar with mixed drinks (from $6). Bowling costs a reasonable $7 per game (or about $42 per hour for parties of four or more), though a no-reservations policy and high demand mean you might have to drink a few beers while you wait.Bowling Prices
Shoes are $3 to rent. Bowling costs $7 per person per game. Groups of five or more: $30-$45 per hour. It's cash only for bowling, but there's an ATM on the premises.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
