Bowling Alley cuisine

Looking for a fun place to celebrate my birthday and have this image of a nice (non-smoky, maybe adults only) bowling alley that serves more than just beer and pizza. Does this exist? Perhaps good cocktails and tasty appetizers to enjoy while bowling some strikes. I live in the Valley but would be willing to travel over the hill for something good. Any suggestions?

  1. I like Lucky Strike in Hollywood. Their food was surprisingly decent. There's also a back room if you prefer a more private function, with easy access to its own restrooms and the far lanes.

    1. The bowling alley in SGV on the corner of Valley and New used to serve pho, but no more.

        Since 101 Dumplings is in the same center, maybe they could cater!

          You mean "101 Noodle Express" right?

          Don't tell me ANOTHER dumpling shop opened up ...

            That's what I meant, I'm melding my dumpling shops.

      2. Lucky Strike is exactly what you're looking for. Ok food, adult space, and cocktails. It's really pretty nice.

        1. There is also a Lucky Strikes in Torrance - I've been to both Hollywood and Torrance locations, and the Torrance location is a little nicer.
