Foursquare Tips

  • Spend time at the bar with famous Brooklynite, Pete the bartender. Very formal cumberbun.
  • Highlights of the food menu include curly fries and pizza. The pizzas are small though, you might need three.
  • Simple, old-fashioned bowling alley that charms you with its vintage feel. While waiting for a lane, hang out with Pete their famous bartender.
  • Open late every night of the week. Why not bowl at 10pm on a Monday?
  • There was a time, long, long ago when Brooklyn was full of bowling alleys. Now only a few remain and this one, in the same spot since 1958, is the real thing.
  • The ONLY bowling place in my Likebox (so far). Sorry Brooklyn Bowl and Lucky Strike. Bowling should not cost more than 7 bucks no matter how cool you are.
  • When bowling, try to stay focused in spite of both the awesome (vintage) and awful (current) music videos being played on the big screens.
  • My bowling alley. The only place for real bowling in New York City. None of that disco black-light bull shit.
  • Thursday Nights - Pitchers half off!
  • The staff here is great!!!
  • Ask for the Pete's Special. It comes in green, red, and purple. You can get rainbow too, but it ends up being purple. Also: you will end up very drunk and will feel insane, in a good way
  • I like this place. It is nice and cozy but it gets packed sometimes. The staff is helpful and nice. The bartender is hilarious, he reminds me of a bartender from 50's polishing the glasses and talking
  • Good old fun! Bartender is a pretty cool Santa-like old man.
  • Retro beauty, though bar doesn't handle credit cards all that well.
  • life goals.
  • Pete the Bartender is a national treasure and filled with laughs. Bowlong is always good on a Friday night.
  • Poor service some staff members were rude, and started fights with customers.
  • It's cheap to book a party and pretty close to the subway. The staff are super nice!
  • Come for the bowling, stay for the bar.
  • Magically transport yourself back to the bowling alleys of your childhood. This place is a time capsule.
