This is an excellent find here in Indy! Be sure to make a reservation before you go!! The price while a little more expensive than regular bowling also includes shoes if needed. The game itself is actually a lot harder than regular bowling but the fun throw back atmosphere makes it all come together. Be sure you know how to score by hand and be ready to learn the duckling bowling isnt as easy as it looks ha. I cant wait to go back, just a fun time all around. You can get alcoholic beverages and regular bowling ally food. All in all this is a place to take friends from out of town or just friends in town! Go check it out !
Honestly, the cutest old-school bowling alley ever! Walking into this place, you are walking into old world charm of Indy back in the day. Everything looks the same as it did back in the 50s, and its amazing that this place is still functional, but so so cool. Duckpin bowling is a little bit harder than normal bowling, so it was fun to try it for the first time. The bar is functional, the service is good, and the drinks are on point. I would totally recommend checking this out for a night on the town. We were there with a larger group, and had a great time.
Great place to have some fun duckpin bowling! The guy working there was really nice and everything went pretty well as expected. The reasons Im giving it four stars instead of five is because it wasnt immediately obvious to me or my friend how to actually get to it, parking was less than fun, and sometimes its hard to know exactly what your score is supposed to be. Oh, and the balls didnt return properly a couple times when we were playing, but that was easy enough to resolve. Overall, I plan on going back in the future!
Went here on a Friday night with the family. Their hours site they are open until 2am. Arrived about 9:30 and the lower level was full with an 1 and a half hour wait. Employee there was rude but did suggest we go to the 4th floor. We walked up the stairs and found open lanes but no employee. Their half eaten food was on the counter but they were MIA. After along wait the employee appeared. We asked to use one of the open lanes but were told they were closing at 10pm, it was five minutes before 10.
Very cool retro bowling alley. Duck pin bowling (smaller pins and balls) is very different from regular bowling and arguably much harder. But super fun. Went on a weeknight but it was easy to get a lane and get rolling. Reasonable price for a group of 4 or more, a little on the pricier side for a couple. Overall great experience and super cool place to hang
Fun excursion for our adult aged family, home for the holidays. This game is much harder than it looks requiring some practiced technique to get consistent results, but the lighter, smaller balls make it easy for anyone and any age to play. They have snack and drink +beer service too. There was ample free street parking this day.
Went here for a company event. It was huge fun. The game is a little different than regular bowling. Smaller balls and pins. No holes in the balls. You dont get the pin action you get in traditional bowling so scores are lower. Totally authentic retro vibe. Just awesome.
What a fun place! We were down in the basement and had two kids with us (5 yrs old and 6 yrs old). Had a lot of fun. We booked the lane for an hour but should have done so for 30 minutes - kids got distracted and hungry. Both kids asked to come back before leaving!
Authentic vintage duckpin bowling. Loud atmosphere when people are there, food is mediocre, pin machines arent the most accurate (being nearly 90 years old), and the whole place is kind of dirty and aged. However, its an absolute blast to go with a group.

This place was really fun. I brought my nephew here for his birthday and he loved it. The service was great and the atmosphere here was fun. I would defiantly take him here again.
Hidden gem in Indy! Duckpin bowling is a lot of fun, definitely a unique experience. Always great service, there is a small bar inside, Ive had dates and birthdays here :)
Old school, a lot of fun to try out with family or out of town guests. The lanes are old, so the pins often got stuck on our lane, but we still had a good time.
This was my first time duck pin bowling and it was an amazing experience to be able to play in the same style as i would assume it was "back in the day".
Cool place, the 4th floor has the view. Make a reservation. The basement has the retro theme. Not ur average bowling alley. Its pricey, but worth it.
Such a cool vibe and unique game. Its not a place Im interested in frequenting, but for the occasional change of pace its great.
Not well maintained and very expensive. Its a great throwback to the past, but the lanes and balls are a disgrace.
A nice family activity. Equipment is starting to get rough, but did not affect our ability to have a good time.
Love duckpin, but not as much here. While good for a friendly game the lanes have not aged well.
Interesting old school vibe to the place. Place is pretty run down, but bowling is still fun
Fun place, but they are hanging on to the retro thing to the extreme, could use some updates
This place is a lot of fun. Everyone in Fountain Square should give it a try at some point.
Fun place to go for a team event. Duck pin bowling is harder then you would think haha.
First time Duckpin Bowling, lots of fun, you feel like you went back in time here.
Really cool place. The basement is a 50s theme and the top floor is 70s themed.
Definitely a unique experience compared to similar games. Great throwback vibe!
Fun and unique experience. Good price. Lane constantly broke down, though
For casual bowlers. Lanes are in bad shape but so what? Superb service.
We were in town for Christmas with family and had a blast here.
Great night out. Very vintage atmosphere and inexpensive.
Loved the historical building and the unique experience
Very nice. Expensive if you arent with a large group.
Great fun place. Have been a few times and love it.
Loads of fun. Make a reservation and dont be late!
Great local place to have a unique INDY experience
So much fun. And way harder than regular bowling!
Fun and guy running the place was great as well.
Price is ridiculous $40 for 2 people for 1 hour
Such a fun outing! I love this place!
Oh my god so fun in vintage building.
