The Majestic’s Garden Bowl

Voted best bowling venue by Metro Times, the Garden Bowl on Woodward Avenue is a full-on experience, with glow-in-the-dark pins, live bands and DJs playing classic Detroit tunes and quality pizza to soak up those pitchers of beer.

Thunderbowl Lanes

Allen Park’s Thunder Bowl features 90 lanes, making it the second largest bowling alley in the entire country! Pros and amateurs alike know that when it comes to bowling at Thunder Lanes, Detroit goes big.

Taylor Lanes

This large, family-friendly alley makes for affordable bowling for leagues, tournaments and parties. Call ahead for reservations.

Woodhaven Lanes

Known for cosmic bowling and Thirsty Thursday drink specials, Woodhaven Lanes turns bowling into a party.

Bowlero Lanes & Lounge

Fully automated (and animated) scoring is one bonus. Another is the Pocket Lounge Bar & Grill, complete with TVs and a pool table. This pristine Royal Oak bowling alley is perfect for leagues and private parties.

Imperial Lanes

Eighty lanes of imperial goodness. Besides regular bowling, Imperial offers a darker alternative, Cosmic Bowling! Black lights are the key to a whole different galaxy as Cosmic Bowling takes place every other Friday night from 9:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. and every Saturday night from 11:30 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Lucky Strike Novi

Get your game on at this arcade/bar/bowling alley. Two American traditions (arcades and bowling) merge at Lucky Strike in Novi. Whether you’re in for a bowling game, an arcade game, a billiards game or the Super Bowl game, Lucky Strike covers it all.

Emagine Theatre

Bowling and a movie? The Emagine Theatre in Royal Oak offers bowling and movies under one roof. Not to worry; the dings and clatter of the pins can’t be heard in the theaters. Emagine has done a superb job of separating the noises while providing exceptional experiences.

And don’t forget featherbowling: the unique nightlife at Detroit’s Cadieux Café is truly a gem of the Motor City, housing the only Belgian Featherbowling lanes in the entire country.
