Looking for a date night with little to no pressure? Make friends with your inner kid and let’s go bowling in New York City!

Lucky Strike Manhattan

Lucky Strike in Manhattan provides the perfect mix of drinks, food and fun. Prepare to watch your gutter ball go down in style with glow in the dark lanes and oversize screens keeping score. More of a lounge than hardcore bowling atmosphere, take your wins or losses in stride with comfy seating, cool music, and lots of billiards tables! Grab a bite from Lucky Strike’s buffet menu and chow down on everything from burgers to pizza to tacos. Prices vary by day and time, but expect to spend $75/hr per lane on Friday or Saturday night after 7pm with up to 10 people in your party. Double date anyone?

Bowlmor Times Square 2

Similarly, Bowlmor Lanes makes any night an experience. With multiple locations throughout the city, each one has something new to offer. Not to miss is the flagship in Times Square which sports 90,000 square feet of New York City themed, lane filled rooms including a “Chinatown” and “Central Park”.

When you’re done bowling, head over to the Carnival boardwalk room where you’re transported to Coney Island for a bit of summer game fun, minus the sunburn. Also worth visiting is Bowlmor’s Union Square location which boasts a mini golf course and country club seating in addition to their signature glow in the dark lanes. Food options are ever present in the form of burgers, sliders and even desserts. A Saturday night at Bowlmor will run you $12.95 per person per game plus an extra $6.50 for shoes.
