Best of Boston

2003 Best Bowling Alley


Bowling alleys don’t traditionally offer Veuve Clicquot. But then, Kings is not your traditional bowling alley. It’s part lounge, part pool hall, and all fun. Dimly lit nooks, red fluorescent running lights, and upbeat dance tunes pumping through the cavernous one-time movie theater help make Kings the hippest place we’ve ever bowled (tenpin of course—none of that candlepin stuff). While away the wait (it can take upwards of two hours on the weekends to snag one of the 16 lanes) chowing down at Jasper White’s Summer Shack or de Ville Lounge, both right on the premises.
