Harlem Lanes greets guests with two floors of lively atmosphere that aim to go beyond the traditional three-fingered boulder-toss experience. Walk through its subtle red-awning entrance and signs will direct you to Harlem’s 24 bowling lanes, where exposed-brick walls encircle a large two-storied space donning an arcade, full bar, a private VIP lounge, and dozens of HD screens and couches. At the main hub, a friendly attendant will outfit you with shoes from your clown doppelganger (a $5 value/person) and set you up on one of the lanes, where you’ll then engage in two games of pin punishment (up to a $9 value/person). The final option of this deal allows alley masters to enjoy the facilities at their leisure with a private bowling party, which includes two hours of unlimited bowling and shoe rental for up to 20 guests. Though not included in this deal, players seeking libations can hit the fourth-floor bar, and hungry ball-flingers can peruse a full menu with more flavor than the island of Manhattan, which was erected on a hamburger.
Harlem Lanes fosters a casual, welcoming environment where you can hone your game or take down a few beverages until closing time. The ambience gets funky on Friday and Saturday, with live DJs and glow-in-the-dark bowling loosening up straitlaced pins. The entrance is just a short walk from the 125th Street and Saint Nicholas Avenue A, B, C, or D train stop, making this lounge a convenient choice for a night out with the pals or an easy date with an agoraphobic subway troll.
Though Harlem Lanes offers discounts for seniors, this Groupon represents the best value.
Surrounding its 24 oil-slicked lanes with exposed-brick walls, an arcade, and private VIP lounges, Harlem Lanes complements the thrill of striking down pins with the relaxed atmosphere of a swanky nightclub. Anchoring the two-story space, a sports bar serves drinks and food under the glow of flat-screen TVs, and couches throughout the facility allow bowlers to kick up their feet after celebrating strikes with mock tap dances. The ambience gets funky on Friday and Saturday, when live DJs and glow-in-the-dark bowling loosening up straitlaced pins.
