Did you know that you could bowl on the Las Vegas strip? That is right, just a few steps from the Flamingo Las Vegas and across the street from Caesars Palace there is a bowling alley nestled away at the LINQ. Now, you should know that is not your ordinary collection of lanes and pins. There is a full blown concert hall adjacent to the bowling activity and a menu from the restaurant that is anything but bowling alley food.
Brooklyn Bowl at The LINQ Las Vegas
The Las Vegas Strip is full of unpredictable, unexpected experiences, but Brooklyn Bowl might top them all. Set amid the slick entertainment district, The LINQ that leads to the High Roller observation wheel, Brooklyn Bowl may look dark and foreboding from the entrance, but take a chance: beyond the carnival-like décor is a hybrid of bar-restaurant-bowling alley-nightclub-concert hall that dares you to define it. The vibe here is decidedly relaxed compared to the rest of the Strip, with no gaming in sight (unless you’re wagering the next beer on your bowling score).

As down and dirty as it may look, this East Coast transplant has some culinary bragging rights: a menu by the Bromberg brothers’ Blue Ribbon Sushi, which includes some seriously crunchy-juicy fried chicken, fun finger food like deviled eggs, smoked trout salad, a great veggie sandwich (see Las Vegas for Los Vegans for details) and deadly bread pudding.
Jam bands, jazz, soul, hip hop and rock—nothing is off the table on the Brooklyn Bowl stage, and there’s almost nowhere in the house where you can’t see the action (even from the restaurant, where you can dine without paying admission some nights!). Of course, if you’re in full VIP mode, you can get a private table on the second floor directly above the stage with bottle service. And there’s a great outdoor patio overlooking the LINQ when you want to get some air.
Brooklyn Bowl also makes itself into another great place to watch the game (while you bowl!) with deals on beer and finger food, and on Tuesdays, they join in on the LINQ's weekly "Bloq Party." As they say in Brooklyn, what is not to love?
