Bordering the edges of Philly’s Fishtown and Northern Liberties neighborhoods, nestled between The Fillmore and Punch Line Philly, sits the city’s newest addition to live music and entertainment destination, Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia.
The multi-concept venue is the fourth location of the Brooklyn Bowl franchise, and home to much more than just music. The Bowl offers two levels of amusements and 24 state of the art bowling lanes equipped with top-notch audio/video equipment. Guests enjoy a selection of local craft beers coupled with a creative craft cocktail menu featuring signature concoctions like The 7-10 Split and The Gutter Ball. Inspired by the legendary chefs from the Blue Ribbon Restaurant Group, The Bowl offers a full dining experience and expansive menu that, yes, includes Blue Ribbon’s world famous fried chicken.
Aside from a delicious and robust menu, expansive selection of spirits and cocktails, and top notch bowling experience; at its heart, Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia is a premier music venue. The Bowl is quickly becoming one of Philly’s go-to destinations for great live music and has already housed performances from The Bouncing Souls, Breaking Benjamin, White Denim, Talib Kweli, Soulive, Rakim, Face To Face, and many more. While some venues close when the live performances end, you can typically expect a late night DJ dance party on most Friday and Saturday nights. With parties like Emo Night, Gimme Gimme Disco (inspired by the music of ABBA), Taylor Swift Night, and The Robyn Party, The Bowl will keep the music bumping and the booties shaking into the early hours of the morning.
While The Bowl falls nowhere short of a playground for adults, it offers regular family friendly programming like Family Bowl Sundays, and monthly concerts from The Rock & Roll Playhouse, which highlights work from musical greats like The Beatles, David Bowie, Phish, and Prince. With bowling, music, food, and alcohol, it’s an ideal Sunday afternoon destination for both parents and children.
