I like the bowling lanes here compare to other bowling spots in the city but just like what other commentators i do felt some racism here. One bad thing is that they dont like giving away lanes. We had 8 people and wanted 2 lanes but they were trying to put us in 1 lane which will take forever to bowl. so we requested 2 lanes and they were like we have to fit 10 people in 1 lane... I m like where da hell do you people come from... That will take like 2hours to bowl 1 game... And the workers clearly cant do their math. They served us sodas in the pitcher and charged the price of glasses which costed more than the pitcher price. Then they started to say they dont sell the sodas in the pitcher.... and we were like you guys just SERVED us in a pitcher.... so we had an argument for about 20 minutes and even the manager was so unprofessional with his job. He clearly didnt wanted to clear this issue til we mention yelp and other review that we were going to write. Seriously i thank god that yelp exist because this kind of unprofessional managers really ruin the day and night for many people who wants to go have fun with their friends. And at last they chased us outside and saying you guys need to pay more tips... I was like holy cow are u serious... We had 25 people and you wasted about 20 min and you wanted to get more tip? My friend walked up straight to his face and said "YOU GUYS DONT DESERVE IT" Other than that I like the place. Its just the people who work there are little rude and need some education.
I Hosted A Birthday Party On March 14, 2015 & I Reserved 3 Lanes For 3 Hrs, I Had A Bus Transport Myself & 31 Others From New Jersey...Upon Arriving, I Got Off The Bus & Spoke With Security & I Entered Along With 6 Of My Guests...As I Was Speaking With The Event Coordinator Jessica, By the Way, She Was Very Sweet, I Was Alerted That My Guests Werent Being Allowed Entry Because They Were Wearing Timberland Boots...I Must Add That Were Black & Being DENIED Entry Inside The Bowling Alley...I Spoke To John The Manager On Duty About A Refund & After 30 Mins Of My Guests Being Detained Outside Of Lucky Strike, John Decided To Speak With Security & Allowed Us In...We Had A Great Time Despite Us Being Discriminated Against & It Clearly States In The Dress Code That Boots Are Allowed During The Winter Season, & I Watched 2 Spanish Guys Enter Wearing (((Timberland Construction Boots))) With No Problem...Its Unfortunate That Racism Still Exists...I Will Not Recommend This Place For Black People...Thumbs Down
I know that bowling seems to be trending upward, but I cant really figure out why there needs to be a "luxe" bowling alley. No wait, I figured it out... Its because of its proximity to Jersey. Lets count it out, shall we? Skunky beer. Semi-slow service. Crappy music. Expensive from what I can tell. 21+, A dress code that dictates the bagginess of clothing, head gear, and forbids motorcycle jackets (I think). What if I was an awkward teenager with really bad teeth who tried to fit in by wearing a baggy motorcycle jacket because its all I could afford from the thrift shop near me in Jersey? Id be totally screwed! Their few saving graces are that they help promote local artists, have a fairly nice staff, and keep the place clean. But if you want to bowl, go somewhere else. There are options.
Went on a Sunday early evening around 5:30 pm after buying a Gilt City deal that included bowling, shoe rentals, some food and beer. It was an okay deal, didnt end up saving too much but it was a nice incentive to get a group together. The space was more crowded than I anticipated for a Sunday, but by the time we left at around 8:00 pm, it had cleared out quite a bit. We ended up ordering a lot of extra food. Skip the nachos, every else - wings, flatbread, fries, mac and cheese - was pretty good and easy to share. The sangria was very sweet. They have a decent selection of beers, we ordered one of those beer towers which was a fun novelty thing to show off. The only downside is that this location is really far west and inconvenient, so you really have to plan your day around this.

I was very disappointed in this place. My friends and I made reservations for my bday. The security racial profiled my nephews. They would not let them in because they felt his buttoned down dressed shirt did not fit tight, which is absolutely ridiculous. It was a dress shirt on his skinny 6 ft frame. When I inquired why they would not let them in I received incoherrant responses. It was clear they did not want to let them in because it was 4 young black males. In addition, to that the contract we received was old. It listed no construction boots. Construction boots to me means timberlands not Nike or ACGs. There was no management present for me to speak with and receive a reimbursement. Everything was a hassle. I will never go to this establishment again.

I organized a birthday party for a friend of mine. They offered us $23 all you can bowl, ping pong, and billiards that also included the shoes. I thought it was too good to be true. Other places were charging about $50 or more for the similar deal that did not include ping pong and billiards. I got there early just to be sure because I had 12 people coming. I was greeted by 2 friendly employees that confirmed $23 special.They told me they just wanted us to have a great time. That was their goal. We also took advantage of half price beers and appetizers after 9pm. I dont remember ever paying $3 for a beer in NYC and less than $5 per appetizer. The lanes are state-of-the-art, great music, and terrific atmosphere. We all had a great time and highly recommend it.

Avoid this place at all costs. Where do I begin? After being told our wait (for 2 lanes) would be 30 minutes, we sat down to have a drink... $12 for a drink seems a bit pricey for a bowling alley, but to add to it, they charge an extra $2 for ice (no, Im not kidding. ice costs extra). The 30 minute wait turned into over an hour. The actual bowling was terrible. $10 per game per person, very cheap equipment, and shoes that look like they were bought from the salvation army. Avoid this place at all costs. Your much better off going to Chelsea Piers, or to the place inside Port Authority. Both are cheaper, nicer looking, and dont treat customers like dirt.
I never knew bowling was such a luxury sport that people cant wear sweats to play it. Of course, they set a dress code so that they can overprice everything. But that is okay. The worst part is that the security at the front door is very sexist and racist. A hideously muscular redneck guy will stop you from entering and will look down on you if you are female or non white. This place is probably the most undeveloped place in NYC. It made me wonder if I was in one of those rural towns where a majority of people are uneducated and in support of Trump. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS HORRIBLE SEXIST, RACIST PLACE.
