300 Club New York
This bowling spot has gone under construction and is now better and stronger than ever. You will have 40 incredibly nice bowling lanes to throw the ball down. The pros will roll the ball down though and you will definitely get a feel for the lane. You can get 8 different private lanes here and 50,000 square feet of spots to walk around and be entertained by the shows and people. If you want to, you can go to the bar that is on an elevated platform that gives you sort of a bird's eye view of the entire place. This is a great thing if you want to watch your kids bowl or something like that while having a relaxing drink. Be responsible though.
This is a spot you do not want to miss if you are in the Brooklyn area. You will have live music, great food, good bars, and even the first "green" themed bowling alley. This is something you do not want to miss if you are an environmentalist. You will get to see how they are trying to make some bowling alleys easier for mother nature. You can support their plans by going to the alley and signing up for a match. Every little bit helps and it will help keep our air cleaner in the future when we do not have to cut down so many trees just to get paper and wood from them.
You will have 24 lanes in this venue. That is enough to fill a small town. Not quite, but it will feel like it. You will also have a great mini-arcade that will keep the kids busy while you might be playing your games against each other. It is definitely something else for them to do if they are getting bored watching you all the time. If you are a sports fan, you will enjoy the fully furnished bar they have here. It has 24 plasma televisions all around to really get a good glimpse of the game in first-hand action. You will also have a children's party room that will keep the little ones happy when everyone else is out having fun. You will have a VIP lounge as well if you can justify the costs. Plan ahead when you want to visit this venue. You will get a lot of enjoyment out of it for sure though and the entire family will remember it for a very long time.
In conclusion, these are some of the better bowling lanes in the Manhattan area. Plan ahead when you want to visit one. You might even get a light show along with it if you go to them at night.
