This will be the most upscale bowling alley I have ever played. The food presentation is like no other and yummy. Get ready to spend money.... We are talking at least $400 for 4 people game/ rental/ food and drinks.

So it was raining on a winter night at NYC... Someone suggested bowling and we were lucky enough to find availability on the same night. Our kids had lots of fun, service was very good and we enjoyed a couple of beers. Fun place!
