BEST BOWLING ALLEY

Park Tavern

All good bowling alleys share a few key elements: plenty of lanes, cheap beer, and mind-blowing cosmic effects, to name a few. But when it comes to great bowling alleys, a few things set the Park Tavern above the rest, like year-round leagues, multiple bars, and a video jukebox. Let that sink in. Video jukebox. At the Park Tavern, you can get your bowl on while viewing hot music videos from the '80s and '90s on huge projectors over the lanes. Even the non-bowling enthusiast will have no choice but to have a good time, as the hypnotizing dance moves of Mr. Rick Astley move across the screen above their heads, like a bowling-alley angel. Add two bars for all your drinking needs (because honestly, who can bowl without drinking?) and great happy hour specials, and you've got everything you need for a bowling experience that dreams are made of.
