They're open late, until 2 a.m. weekends, and it's adults only after 9. They even have free wi-fi, so you can bowl the perfect game and then get on twitter to tell everyone.

The Shops At Sunset Place
5701 Sunset Drive, Suite 202
South Miami, Florida 33143
(305) 665-5263

A bowling alley with sushi? That's the kind of experience you get at Splitsville, which is located in an area packed with restaurants, movie theaters, and other entertainment choices. You can reserve a lane in advance and have catered events. You'll want to, because there are just a few lanes. This is almost a restaurant with bowling as something to do while you wait for your food, but if you like to have something more than a beer and a burger in your beer frame, this is the place. This is a bowling alley so upscale, they even have an evening dress code. If you are looking for something different, try Splitsville.

The Bird Bowl

9275 S.W. 40th St.
Miami, FL 33165
(305) 221-1221

They've been in business for more than half a century, so they know what bowling's about. One of the few remaining 'traditional' bowling alleys in South Florida, Bird Bowl is located in the suburbs, and draws a local and league crowd as well as open bowling. The place is huge, with 60 lanes, and when it comes to food and drink, the menu is traditional; burgers, pizza, and beer. They even serve breakfast for the early (or late, late) bowler, and if you want to have a real celebration, they offer birthday parties for kids. If you like to bowl and don't want trendy, this is your place. Oh, they also offer 16 billiard tables.

2 locations. One is:
5325 South University Drive
Davie, FL 33328
(954) 434-9663

Bowling with a light show. How much fun is that? Sparez offers traditional bowling, with lessons, leagues, kids parties, and such, but they also offer a package with sound and lighting effects, and even a live DJ, for parties and special events. This is a family center, and they have lots of programs for kids. Keep that in mind if you're looking for a strictly adult night of fun. Their website offers frequent specials and coupons. A traditional bowling experience, with an option for a light show, is something you don't see every day.

Sawgrass Lanes

8501 N University Dr,
Tamarac FL 33321.
(954) 722-2700 Fax

Traditional bowling with newly updated lanes, Sawgrass lanes offers bowling with a bit of glitz. You can bowl to rock and laser beams if you want, but underneath all of the high tech trappings you can find a traditional bowling alley. If you have your own ball and your own shoes, you'll be right at home here. The food is a little bit beyond traditional pizza and beer, and they offer billiards and arcade games if you get bored with searching for that perfect 300. Book a party, join a league, or just kick back and bowl a few frames after a long day. Feeling like more fun? Try the Rock and Glow bowling. This is bowling, old school, and a night out, high tech.
