There’s just something so irresistibly nostalgic about lining up at the top of a lane—colorful bowling ball in hand and retro rental shoes on your feet—to face down the ten pins separating you from sweet victory over your family and friends.
At Spins Bowl in Poughkeepsie, an emporium of entertainment created by Diamond Hospitality (the name behind other beloved recreational venues like District Social and Grand Prix New York Racing and Entertainment), you can indulge in a fun-filled night on the lanes alongside a whole slew of classic and new gaming activities that are sure to give your go-to nightlife routines a run for their money. With a recent renovation that upgraded the facility’s seating, lighting, and food and beverage options to the max, Spins Bowl also boasts a ton of vintage entertainment vibes with state-of-the-art conveniences.
Complete with 26 family lanes and eight VIP lanes, Spins Bowl Poughkeepsie has become a destination for first-time bowlers and experts alike, and took home a win in the 2022 Chronogrammies Readers’ Choice Awards for Bowling Alley.
If that isn’t enough to whet your recreational appetite, the center also has a 4,000-square-foot laser tag arena complete with cosmic towers, fog, and bridges for you and your squad to break out into teams and enjoy. For those with their eyes on the prize, a night of bright lights and old-school and modern arcade games at Redemption Arcade will have you racking up the points toward a giant teddy bear or latest tech gizmo in everything from air hockey to skeeball to NBA Hoops.
And it’s not just the classics that will keep you coming back for more. In 2020, Spins Bowl added six axe throwing lanes to the mix. If you feel up for the thrill of hurling a hatchet, you and your friends can head to a lane where an axe master will be on hand to guide you through the process, answer questions, and supervise.
In between racking up points, you can grab a bite to eat at the in-house restaurant and bar where comfort food faves like wings, nachos, burgers, and more reign supreme.
No matter what adventure you choose, Spins Bowl’s many offerings make this recreation destination the perfect one-stop-shop for a refreshing twist on date night, an alternative to the tired old bar scene, and a great option for family parties or a holiday bash with the office crew.
