Longtime Mar Vista residents and visitors who recall the well-worn lanes of the former AMF Mar Vista—and the hearty diner fare of Pepy’s Galley there—may not recognize the glossy revamp of Bowlero, but thankfully the neighborhood bowling alley didn’t wind up in the gutter. With a redesign inspired by a California road trip circa 1970, the stylish, neon and black-lit destination offers plenty of family-friendly fun with 28 lanes, arcade games and billiards. Plus grownup kids can hit up the full bar or order drinks and food that’s delivered right to the plush seating of your lane.

I miss the AMC in Westchester but Bowlero is good too. The pricing is a bit higher than the AMC, but inside is fun and they have bright TV screens above the lanes. There is usually a wait time for large parties on the weekends if you don’t have reservations and don’t want to put down a deposit (who ever does).

Not all the workers seem to know what’s going on with reservations, so there’s been a few instances where they called us early but didn’t yet have a lane for us. So be prepared to hit up the bar in the meantime.

It’s max 8 people to a lane, and they will let you split payment at the end when you return the shoes and pay. That makes it convenient for large groups. Overall super fun and a good time! Good parking lot right in front too – very convenient. 


A friend and I attended opening night at Bowlero Westchester and it is undoubtedly the place to be on the west side. Even if you're not a bowler, there is plenty going on to satiate your fun palate. There's a bar/beer pong area just above the lanes, delicious chef-crafted food that you can order from the waiter/waitress in charge of your lane, and a massive arcade/gaming area complete with state-of-the-art games, Mario Kart, air hockey, basketball, etc. - you name it. This is an enormous upgrade from the previous bowling alley in both space and style. 

Another noteworthy feature (that I've never seen in any bowling alley before) is the bowling monitors. Before playing, each bowler will snap three photos that are converted into a player profile adjacent to their score. Throughout the game, dependent on specific outcomes, your photos will become animated jib jab characters - a fun addition that any bowler or non-bowler will love.


Went there for the inauguration and it really exceeded my expectations: the space is all renovated and it has a really nice vibe. The distribution, the bowling lanes, the bar and all the arcade games give a cool atmosphere to a very big place, which isn't always easy. I’m not a bowling player, but when I put on the (new) shoes and tried it out, wow, had lots of fun. It’s definitely a cool spot to go for a fun night out with a group of friends, trying something different. 


Bowlero Los Angeles has a fun atmosphere from the cosmic bowling with the glowing balls and black lights, interactive bowling alleys where you get to take a picture of your face and it becomes animated as you bowl your game with friends, the arcade which is pretty much more adult oriented, as well as a fun set of music playing as you bowl! The only downside was, when we went to redeem our points we received from the arcade games, the girl in the prize counter lost our card which contained the points we had and as a result we couldn't redeem any prizes. Anyways, they also serve food and drinks. Overall, I still had fun. #TOTastemaker
