2001 BEST Bowling Alley

Milky Way Lounge & Lanes

Homer Simpson’s bowling alley it’s not. First, the food is actually good: pizza from Bella Luna, not greasy hot dogs that spin around and around under a heat lamp all day long. Second, there’s funky art on display. And this Jamaica Plain hot spot also has a lounge, where you can shoot pool, jam to live bands, or dance a little salsa on Saturdays. Oh, and the lanes. They’re dimly lit, lined with Christmas lights, and as cool as disco.
