Highland Park Bowl in Los Angeles

Bowling isn’t what it used to be. Doubt us? Just take a look in to Los Angeles’ Highland Park Bowl, a time-capsule of a bowling alley in Los Angeles.

Usually, in Southern California, “refurbishing” is just another way of saying “we’re gonna knock this down and put something totally different (and awful) here”. Thankfully, the state’s undying obsession with newness wasn’t acted on when the 1933 Group decided to revive this old bowling alley. Instead, the focus was on highlighting the heritage of the place, once a prohibition era hangout for folks who could care less about the Volstead act. 1933 Group has kept as much of the original materials initially used in the space as they could, including a stash of liquor from the 1970s that they’ve incorporated into their cocktail program. Along with a unique bowling alley and a vintage cocktail program, the Highland park Bowl will be venue for smaller roll-outs like a kitchen serving Neapolitan pizzas and a microbrewery. If you find yourself in L.A. hankering a White Russian and a game of bowling, prices for a lane vary day to day but range between $40 and $60.
