Best of Boston

2005 Best Bowling Alley

Boston Bowl

Forty-four lanes. Metal bumpers. Affordable prices. A kingpin’s dream—and now a bowling reality. The pro shop (yes, this bowling alley has a pro shop) stocks enough balls, bags, and shoes to satisfy amateurs and experts alike. The sprawling entertainment complex also has 12 pool tables, a video-game arcade, and a full service bar, and is open 24/7 (save for Christmas Eve).
