Pay it Fashion Forward at Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge

We have all been to the grungy bowling alleys with tacky neon colored signs, sticky seats and noticeable aroma of every greasy food you could think of. However, one Manhattan bowling alley seems to go against all odds.

Lucky Strike Lanes on West 42nd Street is not the typical bowling alley we are all use too.

It has 26 lanes, 10 Billiard tables and strict dress codes. Yes, you read it right. A bowling alley has a dress code that's strongly enforced because it's not just a bowling alley. It's also one of New York's most unique lounges.
