Live music, gourmet food, and retro-chic style make bowling cool again for hipsters and kids alike.

Mission Bowling Club, San Francisco

11 of 24

Don’t show up at MBC on a whim with a dozen friends and expect to bowl. With only six lanes and leather couches, this adults-only Mission District hangout has an intimate feel and requires a little advance planning. (Weekend days are reserved for Family Bowl.) During the twice-monthly Soul & Bowl events, you can throw strikes to a DJ-curated playlist of the hottest soul tracks. It’s worth coming here for the deftly made cocktails and comfort food; some say the hamburger is San Francisco’s best. missionbowlingclub.com
