Nights out in Seattle are always a good time, especially with the wide variety of things to do around the city with friends and family. If you’re tired of going to the same clubs, pubs or bars, try a late-night bowling session instead. At these alleys, you can also get great drink prices, delicious American fare and have fun bowling with upbeat music playing in the background.

This local bowling alley is geared toward laid-back bowlers and pool players who are looking to have a few drinks, play a few games and have a good time. The Garage’s restaurant will serve your drinks and food directly to your bowling lane, so you don’t have to worry about breaking your game concentration or missing out on all of the fun.
