Mid City Lanes Rock n Bowl is a such a unique spot you’ll have to set clear expectations with your bachelor party up front. It’s a bowling alley, but bowling isn’t actually its strong suit unless you like the challenge of slanted lanes and the chipped balls. Plus it costs $20/hr plus shoes.

The real draw here is the live music.  Some of the top local acts come here and the dance floor goes absolutely nuts.  Given that drinks are reasonable and girls are usually plentiful, it makes for a good combo.  Everyone has taken a cab to get here, so you know you’re getting a fun group; feel free to go up to a nice young lady and dance the night away.

Venue Tip: 

Go on a Thursday night if possible for Zydeco Night, which is about as NOLA as it gets.

The Good: 
Some of the best bands you’ve never heard of play here on a regular basis, and once you have a drink, you’d be hard pressed not to have a kick ass time.
The Bad: 
It can get really crowded, the bowling isn’t great and the wait for a lane takes a while. But all that will just allow you to loosen up your bowling muscles (i.e. get hammered).
