Kings Back Bay in Boston, Massachusetts has a great combination of good bowling, tasty food, and cool promotions. They’ve attracted quite a lot of attention and earned several impressive awards.

The alley was voted Best of Boston in 2003, 2006 and 2007 by Boston Magazine. It also has won some honors that speak more to its atmosphere than just the action on the lanes. The Improper Bostonian named it Boston’s Best 2006 Guys’ Night Out and City Search voted it Best 30+ Singles Bar, Best Bar Food and Best First Date spot.

Kings Restaurant

The on-site full service restaurant is huge and will serve you your favorites until 1:45am every night. They also have a cool offer where you get lane priority if you make dinner reservations beforehand.


Kings Back Bay’s promotions are really interesting, and range from Guys Night Out to Jazz Fridays. For the month of November, they have a “Bowl a Turkey” promotion where you win a turkey if you bowl one and the alley also donates one to the Greater Boston Food Bank.

Sharp Website and Good Community

Also, in contrast to so many alleys across the country, Kings Back Bay actually has invested in a high-tech web presence and they actually know how to use social media. They have over 600 Twitter followers and it appears that they actually put some thought into their posts. Other bowling alleys could definitely learn something from their strategy for community building.
