What started as a shopping mall bowling alley in 1941 was transformed into a live music venue in the late 1980's. Today, Rock 'n' Bowl has reached legendary status in New Orleans with eclectic tunes and vintage bowling—no electronic scoreboards in sight—which converge seamlessly under one roof. Crowds of two-stepping and swing dancing locals descend upon the huge dance floor to whirl around, many in costumes of bygone eras, to all genres of live music ranging from zydeco to southern rock. When you need a break, stop by the bar for a beer, pizza, wings, or the fried bread pudding poboy. Bowling parties, complete with Cajun fare, can be booked in advance.
