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.
If not for the occasional clatter of pins, Bowlmor Lanes' bright and modern decor and its full-service dining room could be mistaken for a lively nightclub. The sleek establishment’s gleaming lanes exude a glamorous charm not often found in bowling alleys. Adding to the ambience is a high-end sports bar and glow-in-the-dark lighting that illuminates each bowling pin.

"You're up." At more than 200 AMF Bowling locations across the U.S., that message is passed between friends as they heft a ball, step to the line, and take aim. Now synonymous with bowling, the AMF Bowling Co. was founded in 1901 as American Machine and Foundry. It wasn't until 1946 that the company made a splash in the bowling world, when it introduced the automated pin spotter to the public.
Today, AMF's nationwide network of bowling centers is a source of year-round entertainment for people of all ages. Outfitted with a classic bowling alley design, the centers also feature advanced scoring systems, upgraded interiors, laneside video walls at select locations, and a delicious menu of traditional American dishes and snacks.
Major League Bocce began for many of the same reasons anyone plays bocce ball: the founders were looking for a way to enjoy the social aspect of organized sports, but with less of an athletic component and preferably with a drink in hand. Since forging that modest alliance of close-knit friends in 2004, the company has reached for ever higher goals. Each season, they donate a portion of their registration fees to local charities, and the prize for each winning team is a donation to the charity of their choice. This has added up to more than $100,000 in donations throughout the company's 10-year existence. Like a house spider when your back is turned, the company is swiftly growing?8,000 players now participate not only in Washington D.C., but also Philadelphia, Austin, Pittsburgh, Dallas, and Boston.
