Editorial Review

by Contributor at Citysearch, November 16, 2003

Bowl a few frames or dance to the music--or do both.
The Scene
This unlikely music venue attracts all kinds. Locals of all ages come to Cajun two-step on the large, wooden dance floor. Tourists generally stand at the protruding half-circle bar eyeing the dancers. Some patrons just come to bowl with great background music, not the usual repetitious drone heard in more traditional alleys. Rock 'N' Bowl focuses on regional roots styles, from Cajun and zydeco to swing and rockabilly.

The Draw
Don't expect high-tech bowling that keeps score for you; this is an old score-sheet-and-pencil kind of alley. A downstairs performance space, cheekily named Bowl Me Under, hosts special events and local acts during busy times such as Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest. Patrons pony up a pay-one-price cover for unlimited back-and-forth access to both the alley and the hall below.

Unique! Difficult to wipe the smile off your face after spending a few minutes in here. A heady mixture of singles bar, dancing couples, incessant and oh-so-catchy zydeco beat, and the background... More >

Other bowling alleys around the country may refer to their "rock 'n bowl" specialty nights or whatever, but I doubt any could even come close to the charm and wonder of Mid-City Lanes'. While the... More >
