Brooklyn Bowl is one of those businesses that, at least from a distance, seems to be doing everything right. Established in 2009 in Brooklyn, Brooklyn Bowl combines live performance, a bowling alley, big screen tvs and great food in a hybrid mix that's gotten rave reviews. Recently they launched a new location in London and will soon launch another in Vegas. It's an ambitious move for a creative company that appears to have a high chance of success.
You can get a sense of the Brooklyn Bowl space and the overall vibe from the video below:

Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas opens in March with a list of bookings that includes Elvis Costello & The Roots, The Avett Brothers, Jane's Addiction, Phil Lesh & Friends, The String Cheese Incident, Cake, Primus, O.A.R., Steve Winwood, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Thievery Corporation, Trombone Shorty, Gogol Bordello, and Chromeo.
It's said to be one of the biggest music venues in the States with three levels and 80,000 square feet of floor space.
As described in the official announcement:
"Over 2,000 concert goers will be able to enjoy performances from the standing room general admission area, the luxurious bowlers lounges adjacent to the lanes where bowlers can relax on leather sofas and enjoy the full menu of food and beverages, or the private lounge boxes overlooking it all. Like in New York, on many nights, guests will be able to come early and stay late to experience multiple shows with just one ticket."
"The live concert experience will be complemented by five on-site bars showcasing local craft brews and rockin' comfort food by the world-renowned Bromberg Brothers' Blue Ribbon Restaurants, including their iconic Fried Chicken celebrated on Food Network's 'The Best Thing I Ever Ate.'"
Sounds like fun!
