Bostonians love to combine sports and drinking, which is why there are a number of Boston bowling alleys located throughout the city.
Flashy alley Kings in the Back Bay is definitely slanted toward the drinking side of the equation. “Fishbowls” are the bar’s signature drink -- scorpion-style bowls filled with a combination of juice, alcohol, and Swedish fish. Flirty singles and rowdy groups of friends nurse the neon concoctions while waiting for a lane to open, or opt to play trivia or hit up the karaoke machine instead.
Lucky Strike near Fenway is on the top floor of a multi-tiered nightclub, and is decked out with a mix of modern and 50s furnishings. A wall filled with giant video screens displays scores, and a menu of bar bites and sandwiches keeps the fun-loving patrons’ tummies happy.
Hipsters and locals flock to Sacco’s Bowl Haven in Somerville to bowl a few candlepin games and grab a slice from the wood-fired pizza parlor. The bar, running the entire length of what was formerly lane 10, features a quirky cocktail list and a number of craft beers.
If you’re looking for some old-school fun, it’s hard to strike out with the bowling alleys in Boston.
