Late Night Lanes
Bowlero Lilburn
3835 Lawrenceville Hwy Lawrenceville, GA 30044
With its glossy wooden lanes, vibrant glow, retro decor and familiar sounds of crashing pins, there’s truly nothing like a night out at your local bowling alley. Many have packed up the idea of an outing to the bowling alley and stowed it far, far away, but what they don’t seem to know is that you can never be too old for this timeless pastime. At Bowlero, you and your friends can confront those glossy lanes and stoic pins with strikes, spares and threatening throws of your own. Plus, you even get to sport a pair of those flashy, charming velcro sneakers for a couple of hours, so what’s not to love?
