Located on a busy stretch in New Hope, the New Hope Bowl Bar & Lounge has been around for over half a century, and it shows. On a busy league night, the place is so typical of been-around-the-block bowling alleys like it that you can almost imagine your grandpa and his pals perfecting their bowling hooks and enjoying drink service to the lane while your grandma and her pals smoke and gossip in the intimate lounge area -- back when you could smoke indoors, that is. In addition to bowling and beer, this bar shares a building with one of the metro area's Italian Pie Shoppes. Check out free bowling Mondays from 10-midnight, or sand volleyball when the weather's warm.
