  • 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.

  • Lucky Strike Lanes
    Lucky Strike Lanes is about good times and great bowling. During the day, Lucky Strikes is a family-friendly bowling alley with food, games and, of course, bowling. In the evenings, it changes to a 21+ establishment with a full bar and pool tables. Unlike the traditional bowling alley, Lucky Strike Lanes is an upscale establishment. They maintain a strict casual-yet-neat dress code and require reservations for bowling. The bowling alley features many large screen televisions, comfortable booths and is a smoke-free environment. This spacious facility has multiple options for events, making it the perfect environment for bowling-themed birthday parties or corporate social engagements.

  • Timber Lanes
    In the past, Timber Lanes was a stop on the Underground Railroad, a factory for WWII helmets, and a fallout shelter during the Cold War. Nowadays, though, the tiny alley sticks to its eight all-wood lanes, which have a history of their own—they were imported from a Japanese bowling center in the 70s.
