Brooklyn Bowl Announces Reopening, Huge Slate of Shows

The iconic Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg is back, opening its doors to the public on September 8. The venue also announced an eclectic lineup of over 50 shows, including some dates rescheduled from pandemic cancellations.

To kick-off the re-opening, Brooklyn Bowl is hosting a performance from the reggae outfit, The Wailers, with special guest SunDub, presented by Pacifico. There is truly something for everyone in this new lineup. Fan favorites include Drive-By Truckers, The New Mastersounds, TAUK, moe., and so many more. All tickets will be available for purchase on the Brooklyn Bowl website. The full lineup can be found below.

After getting through the past year in New York City, we’re all ravenous for outstanding live music and a communal experience – not to mention some beer and a little bowling.

Located in Williamsburg’s beautiful, 19th-century Hecla Iron Works building, Brooklyn Bowl has cemented its status as a world famous venue. Over the years, Brooklyn Bowl has hosted countless memorable performances from artists like Guns N’ Roses, The Roots, Lauren Hill, and Elvis Costello, as well as socially conscious gatherings like voter registration drives. It was even ranked the #1 busiest club in NYC, proving to be a great spot for a lively night out. True to its name, Brooklyn Bowl features 16 lanes of bowling, complete with a bar featuring locally crafted beers and food by the acclaimed Blue Ribbon restaurant group and special events. 

Brooklyn Bowl’s superlative, wide-ranging lineup has something for everyone, and we can’t wait to give our fans the magic feeling that only a live show can give.
