Bryant Lake Bowl

810 W. Lake St.
Minneapolis , MN , United States http://www.bryantlakebowl.com/
(612) 825-3737

Affectionately known as the BLB, this vintage-style bowling alley with a full bar and an adjacent theater for concerts, films, and plays draws a crowd every night of the week. Whether or not you plan to bowl, this quirky venue, decorated in 1950’s style with eight wooden bowling lanes, is the perfect casual place to meet for drinks and hang at the bar with the young and hip. Its full-service restaurant skips greasy bowling-alley fare in favor of more upscale American cuisine with locally sourced ingredients.

Tip: Since the BLB doesn’t take lane reservations, show up around 6 p.m. on weekend nights, before the place is packed.

Signature Drink: Lebowski lovers should try the Dude-a-reeno made with Stoli Vanil, Kahlua, and Bailey's over ice.
