OUR PICK: Bowl and Barrel
, The Rim, 17619 La Cantera Pkwy Ste 102, (210) 920-1102, bowlandbarrel.com
Bowling alleys are traditionally known for smelling like feet and cheap beer, but Bowl and Barrel raises the standards from booze and grub to service and aesthetic. One visit will make you realize that B&B is more than a bowling alley; it’s a restaurant, bar and, most importantly, a sophisticated place to hang out with friends, family and dates. Not only do the bartenders whip up delicious drinks, they also take the time to get to know you and make sure you have a good visit. The food, provided by The General Public and The Rustic, will have you licking your fingers, so eat up and kick back on the comfy couches in between strikes and spares. Oh yeah, the bowling is pretty fun too.
