Planned a birthday party for friends and family and we all had a great time! Food very good - especially for a bowling alley! And the portions are huge! The staff was also very nice and accommodating! Thanks!

This will be the most upscale bowling alley I have ever played. The food presentation is like no other and yummy. Get ready to spend money.... We are talking at least $400 for 4 people game/ rental/ food and drinks.

It's a large space with many lanes including 2 VIP lanes separated from the others. It can sometimes be hot and the entrance is only open on 9th Ave.
