General Info:
Since 1938, Bowlmor Lanes has been a New York City landmark. Built in Greenwich Village, many describe it as 'an art gallery you can bowl in.' Every detail in Bowlmor Lanes was designed to create a feeling of sophisticated whimsy. Its past patrons have included former United States President Richard M. Nixon, the Rolling Stones musical group and the famed actress Cameron Diaz. In addition to becoming one of the longest continuously running bowling establishments in the United States, Bowlmor Lanes hosted the first bowling shows in the 1950s. It was later patronized by featuring the 1987 Jodie Foster movie, Five Corners, several short films, music videos, a Guess Jeans print ad series, Cosmopolitan magazine, the J. Crew Fall 1997 catalog and two VH-1 specials. In 2001, Bowlmor Lanes became the world s highest-grossing bowling alley.

Editorial review from Citysearch

Only reason I can not give them 5 stars is the price. Waaaay too expensive. Is a great place to go and have a good time though.

Bowled Under at Bowlmor

I took my grand nephew to this Bowlmor yesterday after school. I was appalled! For $26.00 for two per game, I expect at least the equipment to work. We waited a long time for someone to repair the lane. Also we were placed next to a party of five year olds who kept running in our lane area. The shoes were worn out that I rented, not sure about my nephews, and most of all the food service was so slow and unresponsive.... view more

Great Time!

I went here for the unlimited bowling and shoe rentals last Monday ($24) and had a really great time. The waitress was incredibly friendly and on top of her sh*t. The food was really great - I would suggest the sliders. Overall fun was had by our entire group and I would for sure recommend this as an alternative to the bar.

Had a great time

Kind of hard to mess up bowling with friends but this place made a casual enjoyable night even better.

Awesome Experience

Carnival is quite unique and like no other spot NYC. I went here with a large group of friends and Carnival was terrific. When entering we were greeted by jugglers, midgets and men on stilts. There are tons of fun carnival games and it totally reminded me of fun times I had as a kid with my family. If your going with a group planning ahead is crucial is this place tends to get crowded. We were set up with a li... view more

My nephew's party

Planned my nephew's surprised 12th birthday last week at Bowlmor and it was great. My sis and I called in advance and spoke to an event coordinator since it was 30 kids in total. They were super friendly in helping us pick the right package. Our waitress was really friendly and kept coming to our lanes to make sure the kids have enough soda and food. Overall everything was all we could asked for...only thing that it ... view more

Fun House

We came here when visiting friends in NY a couple of weeks ago. We had planned just to bowl and then head off into the night, but then found out from the waitress about the club upstairs. One manager we had been talking to and having a laugh with earlier invited us up and the night took off from there. Burlesque dancers, jugglers and beers. Definitely an experience. We had a pretty successful run at the games ... view more

Went to Bowlmor for the first time last weekend turned out to be so much fun! It’s something different than going to some bar just sitting around talking with friends. We heard it gets pretty packed there so we called to see how long the wait would be on a Saturday night. The operator recommended a reservation, I seriously wanted to laugh at thinking you needed a reservation for bowling but it was worth every penny, ... view more
