Unlike most activities, bowling rewards you for knocking things over. Guests knock things over nightly at these indoor recreation centers in the south suburbs and DeKalb. Bowling lanes at all three locations facilitate relaxed family nights with automatic scoring and bumper options for groups playing with small children. Friday and Saturday nights, the lights dim for more glamorous glow bowling. Fog machines billow mist across the ground as laser and disco lights cast colorful patterns through the air. Every night after close, Kegel Kustodian machines brush over each lane to ensure consistent conditions for the next day of playing.

Each spot also keeps famished players satisfied with sandwiches, pizzas, and appetizers served at an onsite restaurant. The Burr Oak location entertains numerous galas at a 100-guest banquet hall, and in Oak Forest, the goods times move outdoors for summertime volleyball and bean-bag tossing at The Park.

A trio of retro bowling alleys lures visitors into their distinctive confines for old-fashioned entertainment. Southport Lanes & Billiards exposes groups to waves of nostalgia with four lanes of hand-set bowling, making it 1 of only 10 remaining of its kind in the country. Outside of the bowling area, sleek wooden floors lead visitors to a line of pool tables, and an outdoor patio gives glimpses of the blooming neighborhood in warmer months.

Seven Ten Lounge, home to a bowling alley, billiard parlor, bar, and restaurant, envelops guests in the trappings of a bygone era. Art-deco motifs, vintage posters, and mahogany furnishings surround revelers as they lob a ball, aim a cue, or pity the defenseless pins. Local microbrews pepper the draft list with homegrown variety, and house-made fare elevates the menu past a typical alley nosh.

Hyde Park's Seven Ten Lanes not only exudes a similarly stylish décor, but also features gutter guards to contain errant throws by children or carnival musclemen with inner-ear imbalance.

A blazing neon bowling-pin sign calls passersby into the crimson-and-cream façade of Fireside Bowl, drawing them back through time into the '40s, when the alley was opened. Gleaming spheres devastate their wooden foes beneath brilliant wall murals and vintage accents, and a pool table and selection of turn-of-the-century video games captivate between frames aided by electronic scoring systems and pins set upright by very strong squirrels. Revelry revives itself in the low light of a vintage-style lounge, where suds flow smoothly into pints that glide along a gleaming bar. The guttural roar of stressed guitar strings sings out during occasional rock and punk shows at the alley, where league rollers build prowess alongside casual players on the shining hardwood.
