Best Glow-in-the-Dark Bowling Los Angeles 2010 

All Star Lanes

Forget the newfangled Lucky Strike Lanes; the All Star Lanes bowling alley in Eagle Rock is the real deal. With original midcentury architecture and retro decor, the old-school building features pool tables, karaoke and a video arcade, on top of 22 automatic-scoring bowling lanes that may or not be working. There is plenty of parking, an on-site Chinese restaurant and a classic cocktail lounge that serves up stiff drinks at vintage prices. While the bowling balls don’t have their weights listed, they do come in funky colors, making the glow-in-the-dark bowling sessions all the more enjoyable, not to mention psychedelic. The clientele includes families, hipsters and teens. While it may not be as state-of-the-art as more professional bowling allies, All Star Lanes delivers on that hard-to-find, nostalgia-steeped vibe one expects to find at a local SoCal hangout — and now, with more neon. 4459 Eagle Rock Blvd., Eagle Rock. (323) 254-2579, allstarlanesbowling.com. —Tanja M. Laden
