"Bowling, I like bowling. I've been getting into this bowling thing. It's kinda fun."
- Queen Latifah.
Ballard has not been the same since much beloved Sunset Bowl closed in 2008. There are rumors of a planned bowling alley for either Ballard or Fremont in 2018. So, in the meantime, what's a girl to do?
One nearby bowling option for people in NW Seattle (Ballard, Fremont, Greenwood, Phinney, Wallingford) is Spin Alley in Shoreline: (206) 533-2345. For swanky bowling with high-end cocktails and hot waiters, check out Lucky Strike in Bellevue. In downtown Seattle, the place to bowl, drink and shoot pool is Garage (21 and over only).
