Since its creation in 1640 by Archduke Leopold Wilhelm, bowling has evolved from a format that involved hurling then-precious nectarines at servants. Sample the fruits of victory with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of bowling and shoe rental at 300 Houston.
Upscale bowling, casual dining, and a local hangout roll into one at 300 Houston, where boulder-launching revelers can rock the pins on 32 sleek, mood-lit lanes in the main concourse area. Flanked by cushioned lounge seats, each lane faces floor-to-ceiling video screens flashing music videos and videos instructing removal of stuck fingers from bowling balls. Click here for rates, which change depending on day and time. Although not included in today's Groupon, feel free to tap professional servers for lane-delivered sustenance from the varied menu. Players troubled by 7-10 splits, complicated scorecards, or perpetual foot faults can find calming respite at the full-service bar.
300 New York
Bowling isn’t just a hobby at 300 New York—it’s a vibrant social experience worthy of luxurious flourishes. That’s why cushioned lounge seats flank each of the 32 mood-lit lanes in the main concourse area. Each of these lanes faces a large screen that flashes music videos and tutorials on how to remove stuck fingers from bowling balls. Up in The Loft, bowlers can lounge and take in views of the concourse while sipping cocktails from the full-service bar. A dedicated wait staff connects them to offerings from the onsite bar and restaurant—an eatery known for serving dishes from executive chef Chad Bowser’s menu. Some of Chad’s creations include two-bite chicken or beef sliders and hand-battered fried calamari that can be paired with anything from beer to specialty martinis.
This is a really nice place. I loved the large screen TV's over the lanes. They played a variety of music videos and the basketball game was on also.Zeva P., Yelp, 5/18/11
I have been to this place a few times and I've always had so much fun. I love that the place is pretty and more upscale than the usual bowling ally.Karina R., Yelp, 3/24/11

“Very fun atmosphere. Efficient check in and distribution of balls and shoes. Only strike against (pardon the pun) was the lane conditions. Even considering it was Saturday night, the lane conditioning wasn't just bad--it was completely absent. No oil to be found anywhere on the lanes from gutter to gutter. Certainly didn't entice me to consider joining a league at 300. Still, all in all, it was a very fun time.”
