A great place to hang out! – I recently came here with my co-workers and we can't wait to come back again. The event planners who help you set everything up really take care of every detail so all you have to do is show up and have an amazing time. Come here on a Friday or Saturday night and go up to their awesome new night club, Carnival after you bowl!
Cheap Bowling – great bowling place. very hip bowling alley.
try the dunk tank drink (massive for at least 7 people).
SO MUCH FUN! – Went to Bowlmor for the first time last weekend turned out to be so much fun! It’s something different than going to some bar just sitting around talking with friends. We heard it gets pretty packed there so we called to see how long the wait would be on a Saturday night. The operator recommended a reservation, I seriously wanted to laugh at thinking you needed a reservation for bowling but it was worth every penny, two and half hour of unlimited use of your lanes without waiting. Amazing!
Great place to bring friends!! – I came to Bowlmor recently for my brother's birthday. I was expecting a traditional bowling alley with greasy food and weird old men... but I was pleasantly surprised to find that this bowling alley was different. The cosmic, glow-in-the-dark bowling is awesome. They have hip music that transforms the bowling alley into more of a bar/night club. The staff, from the front desk to the management, are friendly and prompt with their service.
All in all, Bowlmor was a great place!! My brother was extremely happy with where he chose for his party.
Good for company outings – Me and some of my co-workers went to Bowlmor after work for some drinks and bowling. It was the perfect after-work situation, since there was more to do than just drinking. It was a good chance to bond and have some fun outside of work. The lane-side service was great, the drinks were a little pricey, compared to your regular watering hole so we just stuck with pitchers of beer. The atmosphere was worth it though, they had a good crowd and like I said before the service was great. We will definitely be back and most likely host our annual summer office outing here.
Amazing Time!! – I recently went to Bowlmor with a group of my friends, and I was floored by the ambiance. The staff was super friendly and I felt like a celebrity, just by being there. I will definitely return soon!!
Girls Night Out – Me and some of my girls wanted to do something fun and different so we decided to go bowling. We went on a Monday night and they were having a special, so right from the start things were going well. We had to wait a little because it was super busy but we just hung at the bar so it wasn't a big deal - we all got to catch up. We ended up playing two games, having some drinks and pizza. Our waitress was great and although we are horrible bowlers, I don't think we all laughed that hard in awhile! The con - honestly I hate bowling shoes - that was my only complaint.
Horrible Experience!! – I went to Bowlmor this past Friday night to celebrate a friend's 21st birthday. Myself and the group I was with arrived early so decided to wait for everyone else upstair in the lounge. I've never before heard of paying a cover to get into another room within one establishment, but ok fine we are willing to pay. The bouncer tells us that one of my friends will not be allowed upstair because his jeans are too baggy. His jeans were loose fitting but I would not say baggy and he had a belt so they were at his waist. I asked to speak to a manager who assesed the situaton and decided the jeans were not baggy but said they would still not be able to go upstairs because they were wearing sneakers. Clearly if the bouncer and the manager have different perceptions of what is passable, there is no real standard for their dresscode which is silly and unprofessional. Although this turned us off early on we stayed and bolwed. Throughout the night our group was played close by the management, constantly having people come over to us to remind us of the time, or tell us we could not play anymore games. We ended up spending hundreds of dollars that night including $170 on two huge fishbowls. At the end of the night there was some drama because we wanted to take the fishbowl our but they said it was not allowed. However the issue quickly changed to how we were being treated in regards to this situation. The management, especially one particular bouncer were completely rude and nasty and treated us as if we were second class patrons. I hate to pull the race card but I feel as if this is one incident where it is necessary. I had a horrible experience and would NEVER go back there again, nor would I recommend it to anyone. I have never been so disgusted by an establishment and the only reason I even give it one star is because citysearch requires that as a minimum. They clearly want a certain crowd and cater to a cetain type of patron. Not even their music was diverse. I later heard that there is currently a law suit pending against them by people with similar claims of racism and profiling. it's just too bad they beat me to it.
So Much Fun! – So I went to Bowlmor with some friends this past weekend and we had so much fun! It was my first time going, so I didn't know what to expect, but from the minute we walked in, it was amazing. They had a guy that took you up there ( which I thought was pretty cool) and the staff was pretty nice, I couldn't stop looking around at everything! We all enjoyed some bowling, food and drinks - which were a little on the pricey side - but to me it is understandable - it is New York.
I would recommend this place to those looking to do something different and fun with some friends.
10th Birthday – I was really please to have plan my son's 10th birthday at Bowlmor Lanes. After searching all over the city, my co-worker had recommend that I looked into Bowlmor Lanes. I stopped in there and took a tour of the space. I was introduced to an event planner which sat me down and gave me a few different options. We decided the kids would bowl and eat then were able to play at Carnival upstairs. Overall the price worked out within our budget and everyone had fun. Thanks so much!
