Bryant-Lake Bowl

Open from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. every day, Bryant-Lake Bowl is part restaurant, part bowling alley and part theater with eclectic live performances.

Can Can Wonderland

This is possibly the only indoor mini-golf course known not only for its zany holes but also its over-the-top cocktails and entertainment, including trivia, arcade and variety shows. (Plus, they’re due for an upgrade.)

Half Time Rec

Dig into Irish-influenced pub food while playing indoor bocce ball or listening to the free live music they schedule every weekend.

Punch Bowl Social

Bowling, board games, a sprinkle of arcade games and private karaoke can only get better when sharing a punch bowl-size cocktail. Right?


Golfers and non-golfers alike love this indoor range-on-steroids. Teched-out targets in the field allow for five different games that challenge your accuracy and power, and folks stick around for the food and drinks.


With more than 50 arcade games, plus skeeball, pinball, Nintendo 64 gaming and life-size Connect Four, this adults-only bar is always buzzing.

Voxel Virtual Reality Parlour

The state’s first virtual reality arcade doesn’t disappoint, with experiences ranging from thrilling adventures to sports games. Those who aren’t playing can see what’s happening on screens so no one feels left out.
