“After getting through the past year in New York City, we’re all ravenous for outstanding live music and a communal experience – not to mention some beer and a little bowling,” says co-founder Charley Ryan. “Brooklyn Bowl’s superlative, wide-ranging lineup has something for everyone, and we can’t wait to give our fans the magic feeling that only a live show can give,” adds co-founder Peter Shapiro.

Brooklyn Bowl, ranked the #1 busiest club in NYC and #7 busiest club in the world (Pollstar), provides the ultimate night out, with its groundbreaking integration of premiere music, 16 lanes of bowling, a bar featuring locally crafted beers, food by the acclaimed Blue Ribbon restaurant group and special events. 

Located in Williamsburg’s beautiful, 19th-century Hecla Iron Works building, the venue — aka "rock and roll heaven" (Village Voice) — boasts a sound system and amenities that "no other local rock club can offer" (The New York Times). Brooklyn Bowl presents more than 550 shows and has hosted countless memorable performances including Guns N’ Roses, The Roots, Lauren Hill, and Elvis Costello, among many others, as well as socially conscious gatherings like voter registration drives.

Brooklyn Bowl was founded in 2009 by music entrepreneurs and co-owners Peter Shapiro and Charley Ryan, who previously partnered at Manhattan’s famed club Wetlands Preserve. Wearing its homegrown values on its sleeve, Brooklyn Bowl is as committed to locally made products — serving award-winning beer from the adjacent Brooklyn Brewery — as it is to environmental sustainability; it's the first LEED-certified bowling alley in the world (and serves only paper straws). And the food? "Epic," says Eater. In other words, Brooklyn Bowl's unprecedented combination of top-flight music, bowling, beer, and food is "like nailing a spare on a four-ten split" (The New Yorker). Additional Brooklyn Bowl venues are located in Las Vegas and most recently, Nashville.
