If you are looking for a fun night out, the Brooklyn Bowl is a great place for some serious and sporty fun. The famous fast-paced fun zone with awesome live entertainment and world class eats, is now eco-guilt free as the first LEED certified bowling alley.

Brooklyn Bowl is 100% wind powered, has reclaimed cork and recycled tire floors, and skylights which helped the venue earn its title as the world's first certified sustainable bowling alley.

Implications - There are few things in the Brooklyn Bowl that aren't Green. In an effort to save the energy that comes with re-racking downed bowling pins, the bowling pins at the Brooklyn Bowl are attached to recoiling cords that bring the pins back into place. Very smooth, very avant-garde. The Brooklyn Bowl is open now.
