in Los Angeles
Los Angeles bowling bars let you channel all things Lebowski as you set 'em up and knock 'em down, all the while drinking cheap beer and sneaking in some arcade games on the side. LA bowling bars are often vintage relics from another era, complete with retro arcade games and pool tables, but you’ll also find modern alleys with black light lunar bowling, live music and even karaoke. One of the top bowling bars in Los Angeles is The Spare Room, a Hollywood hideout with a fun crowd, killer drinks and a secret photo booth where you can document the night. If you’re serious about bowling, be sure to make lane reservations; otherwise just relax on the comfy lounge tables or try to join a team that’s already playing. All-Star Lanes in Eagle Rock features free parking, super cheap drinks and live bands, karaoke or DJs every night. Shatto Lanes in K-Town is open until 3AM on weekend nights, a funky favorite with billiard tables and throwback arcade games. Jillian’s at Universal City Walk features state-of-the-art video games, rock 'n roll bowling and endless neon lights, while Lucky Strike at LA Live is so swanky, it’s got a dress code. Other top bowling bars in LA include El Dorado Lanes by LAX, laser-laden Pinz in Studio City and environmentally conscious alley Gable House Bowl.
