Bowling is a model for interpersonal relationships—the ball is your scream and the pins are other people’s opinions. Make a striking statement with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a bowling outing for up to six people at Fireside Bowl (up to a $48 total value). The outing includes the following:

  • One hour of bowling (up to a $30 value)
  • Shoe rental (a $3/bowler value)<p>

Guests stand astride the chasm between past and future in Fireside Bowl’s vintage alley, designed and built in the 1940s and complete with a throwback bowling vibe punctuated by modern amenities. Groups of up to six orb slingers, garbed in pairs of provided bowling shoes, sidle up to lanes to stare down smug pins during hour-long increments, allowing players to partake in multiple quick games or one leisurely frame. Computer-scoring systems monitor each lane to document the number of vanquished pins, and the alley’s traditional décor, which includes wall-to-wall murals, evokes a relaxed, timeless ambiance.

Fireside Bowl

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.

Customer Reviews

FIreside is a fantastic bowling alley, but in a very different style than what most people are used to. It's one of the original bowling alleys from the 1930s, and it seems like it. It's like a really nice low end bar with a really nice low end alley in it. It's completely unlike cosmic bowling, which is better for families, or upscale bowling like you might find in Streeterville. It's fantastic for what it is, but you have to know what you're getting into when you go there.
