The Brooklyn Bowl is not to be overlooked when looking for fun and interesting things to do in Las Vegas. Found on The Strip, this offshoot of the renowned Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, New York offers no less than 32 bowling lanes. It also has a sizeable music venue and a Blue Ribbon restaurant. These features are spread out over 80,000 square feet and combine to make the Brooklyn Bowl a great place to visit both during the day and at night. If nothing else, it is a good idea to check out the Brooklyn Bowl’s events calendar while in Vegas. The concerts feature some of the biggest names in the music business and surely give some of the other Vegas shows a run for their money in terms of allure and appeal.
The Brooklyn Bowl in NYC was such a hit that the owners decided to open a branch in London. Next was a move into the “Entertainment Capital of the World’ – Las Vegas. The Las Vegas offshoot of the Brooklyn Bowl offers 32 Brunswick bowling lanes that can each host up to eight players at a time. Swanky leather sofas provide great places to relax while you wait for your turn to bowl in the bowler’s lounge area. There is also an elevated bowler’s lounge section that provides better views of the lanes and of the high-definition projection screens that are set over the pins. A dedicated wait staff is in place to deliver both drinks and food from the resident Blue Ribbon restaurant. The restaurant essentially specializes in American comfort food, offering such delights as wings, fried chicken, pizza, catfish, and barbecue. If you’re a vegetarian, worry not, as the Blue Ribbon Las Vegas also serves up vegetarian fare.
No discussion about the Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas would be complete without expanding on its partial role as a live entertainment venue. Set right next to the bowling area is the complex’s concert venue, where big name acts are often headlining. Fronting the stage in the concert venue is an ample area for the standing-only crowd. There is also an upper balcony area, where patrons can either stand or hope to secure one of the tables with seating. It should be noted that the concert venue at the Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas doubles as a nightclub, where live DJ-spun music often sets the stage for late night dancing. Plus, since the Brooklyn Bowl is part of the larger Linq shopping and entertainment complex, it is easy to combine visits to the bowling and nightlife venue with visits to the Linq’s other fixtures, which include shops, restaurants, and bars.
