The Vibe: The lanes at this hipster hangout were salvaged from an old Ohio bowling alley. The midwestern anyman feel of the bar is accentuated by 1970s scoring machines and classic Tiffany-style lamps.

The Crowd: Barflies and bowlers are a steady mix of American Apparel–clad Williamsburg wannabes, ironic vintage-bowling-shirt-sporting cool kids, and interlopers from other boroughs.

Time-Travel Tip: Show up before 8 p.m. Monday through Friday for $6 games and a dollar off drafts and well drinks. While the bar stocks more than 12 beers on tap, food options are grim (a vending machine), so fuel up pre-frame.
