If you ever doubted that a regular old bowling alley could give you an experience, you haven't seen the new guy in town, Brooklyn Bowl. Not only does it have that great vintage vibe going on, it has a lot of the great modern day amenities that will make you stay way beyond your 10 frames. Whether you're shaking your booty to the music blaring out of their a custom-designed JBL Vertec sound system or enjoying a concert film on one of their nine high-def screens, Brooklyn Bowl wants to show you what entertainment really means.
Located at 61 Wythe Ave. in Brooklyn, NY, it houses a a 16-lane bowling alley and a 600-capacity performance venue for concerts. Live music is expected to play a few nights a week.
Each design element was carefully chosen to give you that old school feel. Inside you'll see cushy black Chesterfield couches, a bar that resembles a 19th century Coney Island shooting gallery and tables crafted from old bowling lanes. But reusing old materials wasn't just part of their design plan, rather, they also wanted to make this bowling alley as “green” as possible. As part of its mission to operate in an environmentally responsible way, Brooklyn Bowl was built according to the strict standards of the United States Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program, which call for, among other things, efficient use of energy and water. Careful attention was paid to construction materials: the stage was made from recycled tires and the wood was certified to have come from well-managed forests.
Bonus? The comfort-food menu was created by the acclaimed Blue Ribbon restaurants.
Brooklyn Bowl soft opened yesterday, July 7. Hop on over to see the new kid in town and check out what he has to offer. And oh yeah, bring your friends, 'cause they're gonna flip.
We even love their signage!
