Lonely Planet review for Bowlmor Lanes
Among retro-crazed New Yorkers, a night of bowling qualifies as quite a hoot. Maybe it’s the shoes, or all the pitchers of beer. Open since 1938, Bowlmor has Manhattan’s go-to-lanes for stars, bar mitzvah parties and beer-slugging NYU students. After 9pm Monday, it goes DJ-blasting glow-in-the-dark, with unlimited bowling for $24 including shoe rental (age 21 and up).
