This a a fun place and neighborhood!!!! If you haven’t been here you must. The pepperoni pizza and the cocktails are amazing, we had our company holiday party here for 3 hours and it was amazing. We all had a blast. The service is great. Jake was always very responsive to our emails while making the reservation and super helpful all the time. Making sure I was understanding all the package for a 25 party. Seriously, Don’t miss this place and don’t forget to explore the hood, it’s very cool!
My husband and I were recently in this area to visit our daughter. She chose highland Park bowl as an activity for the afternoon because my husband is a bowler. The bowling Center is located in an amazing vintage building. The name on the outside is barely visible because of the original peeling paint. The inside of this Center has rooms where they host different features such as open mic night, drag shows, live bands. They also have a kitchen with a giant pizza oven for fresh made pizzas. The area with the lanes themselves has two large bars and about 8 lanes. You rent the original ugly shoes and bowl on old wooden lanes with the house bowling balls that are chipped and make the bowling more challenging. The only updated feature are automatic scoring. We ordered cocktails while there and had a lot of fun bowling. There was a child's birthday party on the next lane and the kids were loving it. I highly recommend highland Park bowl for any bowler with a love of the kitsch from days past.
Had a really good time here. It looks great in pictures, but even better in person. The drinks were really good too, as well as the food. A lot of good appetizers/finger food to eat in between turns. I went on a Thursday evening and it was a decent amount of people, but not overwhelming.
Undoubtedly, the coolest bowling alley I’ve been to. I love this place. It was very lively, they provide lane side service (which was fantastic), offering delicious drinks, they even had a drag show that started around 9. Can’t wait to come back. Although, do be warned, I found the lanes very difficult! I usually put spin on my tosses, but these lanes are completely unforgivable— ball would careen into the gutter every time. But that’s on me! Anyway, check this place out (Highland Park in general is *such* a cool up and coming part of town, too). I’d advise trying to reserve a lane in advance— we walked in and the wait was ~1.5 hours (which wasn’t bad for a Friday, mind you), however, there are plenty of really cool bars on that street (including at the alley itself).
