Brooklyn Bowl New York is the flagship venue for the Brooklyn Bowl franchise, with its groundbreaking integration of premiere music, 16 lanes of bowling, a bar featuring locally crafted beers, and food by the acclaimed Blue Ribbon restaurant group. Keeping its homegrown values on its sleeve, the Brooklyn Bowl is the first ever L.E.E.D.-certified bowling alley in the world and boasts a sound system and amenities that “no other local rock club can offer” (The New York Times). Open seven days a week, Brooklyn Bowl has become a mainstay for New Yorkers and has hosted greats like Guns N’ Roses, The Roots, Lauryn Hill, and Elvis Costello.
