Best of Boston

2006 Best Bowling Alley


As with so many scenes, Bill Murray puts this one over the top. Or his bowling ball does, anyway: The alley has the actor’s translucent rose-in-the-middle Kingpin orb on display, along with a few other items from the Farrelly Brothers classic. Pumping music and a Rat Pack-chic lounge complete the glitzy packaging, but Kings’ 16 lanes and $5 draft beers keep it firmly rooted in the throwback thrills that make rolling for strikes such a singularly good time.
