From the West Side of Manhattan to the Williamsburg waterfront, last year saw bowling rumble back into New York's nightlife with a vengeance. This hipster alley scored big with nongamers by putting booze, music and food on the same plane as crashing pins. The multifaceted entertainment complex—featuring live bands, an all-Brooklyn beer list and inspired junk food from the Blue Ribbon team (pork rinds done up like nachos)—is a great place to eat, drink and party even without slipping on a pair of two-toned shoes. Brooklyn Bowl 61 Wythe Ave between North 11th and 12th Sts, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-963-3369)
