Bowl Like a Boss

Earlier this month, the newly improved Corner Alley reopened its doors to show off the results of a two-month overhaul of the downtown location. With 16 lanes (including a few in a tucked-away corner for groups), two full bars, 24 beers on tap, a dining room with more than 50 seats and three dozen shareable appetizers, snacks, sliders and pizzas, there are a lot of reasons to love the refreshed space.

We can't (and probably wouldn't) share our fried fish sliders ($10) here, but if you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, our photo tour is a good place to start.

Bowlers waiting for their turn on the lane can take in a game (or four) on overhead high-definition TVs.

Floor-to-ceiling windows and outdoor patio spaces offer lots of people-watching opportunities.

Though the main bowling space is huge, there's more below with a soon-to-open arcade game downstairs.

Clean and modern lanes offer stuffed chairs, in-lane food and drink service and vintage tabletop arcade games.

Awash in light, a tabletop shuffleboard beckons to a second bar and more secluded lanes.

What goes better with bowling than bourbon?  Also find about 18 cocktails, a dozen wines and 60 brews available here. 

Bowling lanes can accommodate up to eight bowlers at a time. Friday through Sunday lanes cost $25 per hour before 5 p.m. or $35 per hour after 5. Weekdays are $15 per hour before 5 and $30 per hour after 5. Shoe rental is an additional $3.50 per person or free from 2-6 p.m.

The Corner Alley Downtown, 402 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, 216-298-4070,; Sun-Thu 11:30 a.m.-midnight, Fri & Sat 11:30 a.m.-2 a.m.
