America's Coolest Bowling Alleys

Timber Lanes Bowling, Chicago

Open since 1945, the family-owned Timber Lanes is a cash-only old-school throwback with eight wooden lanes, manual scoring, a jukebox, and a pile of take-out menus for food. It’s got unpretentious charm and affordability: $2.50 per game during the week, $3 for shoes, and $3 liquor specials at the bar. Evenings are for the 21+ crowd, from cops and lawyers to hipsters and yuppies. Children are welcome during the day and weekend afternoons. timberlanesbowl.com
