A Neighborhood Institution

This place is a classic option for a Saturday night out, you can't go wrong. When they re-opened post-K it seemed like the whole city was there to welcome them back! The crowd is mostly local. The best is when they have live rockabilly music, if you like to people-watch, you'll be staring in amazement at the dancers geared up in 50's pompadours and poodle skirts. There's a sort of 'alternative' vibe here that I reall... view more

One of the coolest places in the world

This place is like paradise... lanes and lanes of vintage alleys and rockin' bands to make you bowl like a pro. Actually, I think the lanes were a little crooked, but who cares, esp after some drinks and dancing. Locals were in there for the zydeco band gliding around like ballroom champions - it was a surreal and amazing experience!

A great surprise

Unique! Difficult to wipe the smile off your face after spending a few minutes in here. A heady mixture of singles bar, dancing couples, incessant and oh-so-catchy zydeco beat, and the background clatter of the occasional strike.

Best night out in New Orleans!

I've lived here for 3 years and this was the most fun I've had yet! I wasn't planning on bowling, I just wanted to see Sonny Landreth, Kenny NEal, Anders Osborne and Eddie Bo on the same show. It blew my mind. THIS is what New Orleans is all about! After throwing back a few beers with my friends and making a fool of myself on the dance floor, I decided to make a fool of myself bowling, too. It was so much fun, we ... view more

It's Best to Go When There's Zydeco!

After numerous trips to New Orleans, I FINALLY made it to the much-touted Rock N Bowl. Thursday nights are Zydeco Night, and the place was definitely rocking. People of all ages and all backgrounds were kicking up their heels together. The energy was unbelievable! We also went the following night, which featured a bluesy band, but it was much quieter then. As for the actual bowling, the lanes and equipment are r... view more

Nothing else like it

Other bowling alleys around the country may refer to their ""rock 'n bowl"" specialty nights or whatever, but I doubt any could even come close to the charm and wonder of Mid-City Lanes'. While the other places are blaring piped in music and trying to hype up the atmosphere with lasers, fog machines and black lights, this spot is rocking with real party music -- live zydeco, Latin, blues, funk or covers everyone lov... view more

Atmosphere to spare

The action, of course, comes in the evening, when a (mostly) great lineup of diverse regional acts, including Fredy Omar, the Iguanas and Anders Osborne, propels this cavernous bowling alley into the dance-party stratosphere. (I know they're popular, but couldn't we do without the Bags of Donuts and Bucktown All-Stars?) But Mid-City succeeds nearly as well as a laid-back neighborhood hangout/bowling alley in the earl... view more
