To bring together a game like bowling and live music (and to implement it with beer and food as an icing on a cake) must have been one of the best entertaining concepts that have ever come to the entertainer's mind. A performance venue and a bowling alley at once, Brooklyn Bowl gives an idea of large-scale entertainment location in the American way. It also responses to the masses' inclination towards the local nostalgia.
Erected in 1882, originally as the Hecla Iron Works building, the spot was redesigned with an obvious nod to Coney Island aesthetics: all these carnival games relics, freak show posters and such. Plush tufted sofas are no disturbance in between playing on one of sixteen bowling lanes, sipping local craft beers in one of the few bars, tasting delicious fare by Blue Ribbon (Old Bay-fried chicken and stuff) and enjoying live shows.
