Bowl Like You Mean It: Old School Bowling in Chicago

bowling in Chicago with friends

In Chicago, bowling is just better. Our beautiful city has a combination of upscale lanes and down-to-earth, old-school bowling alleys. You’ll enjoy your time spent knocking down some pins at any of these prime locations for bowling in Chicago.

Kings Dining and Entertainment

This place truly has it all. Disco balls, bowling balls, and a whole lot of personality. The low couches and bright, uplifting hues of the decor will transport you to another time and place.

The lanes are spectacular and the food is something to be enjoyed. The main menu elevates typical bowling grub a few notches. You can enjoy a tuna poke bowl or even a truffle mac and cheese.

If you’re hosting an event for a large or small group, Kings is a memorable destination. You can book a private room which includes private lanes and dining spaces. 

Timber Lanes Bowling Alley

This fun destination bills itself as a “Classic Old School Bowling Alley in Chicago.” Indeed, its small size and clean, pared-down options make it a delightful blast from the past.

Open bowling is offered throughout the week with reasonably priced sessions. You can even find a lane for the amazing bargain price of $2.50 on certain days of the week.

If you would prefer to hand-score your game without graphics on a big screen, you can do it your own way at Timber Lanes. Bring your calculator or do some mental math — you’ll enjoy adding up your own totals in a face-off against family or friends.

Timber Lanes also offers recurring leagues for a social experience that’s hard to replicate in our digital age.
