Best of Boston

2010 BEST Bowling Alley

Kings Lanes

Kings is the ultimate crossroads for the 16-pound ball and the 16-ounce Bud. Though it has a vintage, Vegas-style veneer, the subterranean entertainment complex is decidedly modern, with high-tech scorekeeping machines and a phalanx of high-def TVs. Though the crowds of stylish professionals and grad students can mean long lines for pool tables and lanes, they also make for a buzzing scene. Don’t despair if faced with an hourlong wait: Just order a martini and content yourself with people-watching. This is an equally prime location to watch or play.
