FINALLY! I've been dying to come here and let me tell you, it was everything I imagined. The place is absolutely gorgeous. Apparently hte place has been around since the '30s and it definitely still retains that charm. Interestingly, the place is available for private parties, like weddings, and hell, I would consider it if I had to plan a wedding. We got there right before the headliner was coming (Mayer Hawthorne and the County) so we didn't really get a chance to order a drink or grab a table and have a bite, but hopefully next time. Bathrooms were clean as ever. The staff was friendly and overall, the vibe of the place was really nice. I highly recommend you play dress-up and come see a show here. Parking is available at the hotel down the street - I believe it was the Hilton.

Went here the first time yesterday for a nice lil gathering... That atmosphere for this place is pretty cool. I like the fact that they glow-in-the-dark bowling lanes and the TV's in the backgrounds. Very unique, they went all out for that. Also like the fact that they have a full bar and menu for food so you can get your grub on, have a few good games and get wasted all in one. Great for a Thursday-Saturday night. Few draw backs that I would say about this place though is 1: Expensive! $13 per person per game and $6 shoe rental. I understand its Manhattan and the place is suppose to be "upscale" but sheesh! 2: Its almost like a club getting into the place with checking ID's at the door and having standard times where under 21's can get in and not be able to get in, a lil over the the top, what's next a dress code? (in which case there are bowling alleys, at least one in particular that does that now: hint hint C.P. are the initials) So, Bowlmour is a recommend, mostly because it is in a convenient location in Union Square which is fairly easy to get too, if you don't wanna eat there, there are so many spots around for your choosing and it is kind of a lounge too so you don't necessarily have to bowl to have a good time.

It's a pizza place with a full bar and lounge...a good thing. The pizza is in the upper echelon of pies in Austin. Good crust and the proper smattering of toppings. Happy hour prices from 5-7 on Pizza which is half off and on Lone Stars which is two bucks. When the bartender doesn't give you the discounted Lone Star Price at 6:59 - it comes out of his tip. It's called customer service.
