Best Bowling Alley

Mahall's 20 Lanes

As the neighborhood lanes die and mega-obnoxious bars/dance clubs/restaurants try to cash in on the belated hipster/urban appeal of bowling, you can take solace in Mahall's. A Lakewood institution, this testament to the game remains a bastion of elegance and simplicity. The machines and decor look vintage because they are — not much has changed, even the machines, in decades. It's like stepping into your dad's bowling alley from the 1970s, just the way we like it. Actually, it's the only way it should be done, especially when you can drink a pitcher, roll a few games and not even drop a Jackson in the process.
