  • Park Tavern
    Over the last 50 years, The Park Tavern has perfected the convivial trifecta of eating, drinking, and bowling.

On Mondays, the alley fills with high-energy tunes, and bowling balls careen all night during the $5 all-you-can-bowl nights. The Park Tavern rolls out its varied bowling buffets for corporate events, birthday parties, or the anniversary of the end of bowling prohibition during the Nixon administration.
