A strike for Kings

As much as I love exploring new parts of the city, sometimes convenience is at the top of my priority list. One of my favorite spots around Northeastern is Kings. I think it’s the perfect place when you’re looking for a more low key kind of night.

Now, I think it’s safe to say that most people enjoy bowling. To be honest, I don’t believe you if you say you don’t. Kings offers 16 ten pin bowling lanes and all the needed accessories. Shoes are available in all sizes from kids 9 to adult 17.  If you’re like me and lack upper body strength, worry not, bowling balls are provided in different weights. On Tuesdays, it is free for college students with a college ID. To add to the Tuesday night fun, STUMP! hosts a trivia night at the restaurant section starting at 8 p.m. After a long day of classes, what better way to unwind than with some bowling and trivia? Kings also offers bowling leagues. You can contact Meghan at mharrell@lyonsgroup.com for details and availability.

Bowling isn’t the only activity offered at Kings. Besides the billiards room and the restaurant section (which offers a late-night menu until 1:45 a.m.), King’s also offers open mic nights on Wednesdays at 9 p.m., karaoke on Thursdays and Saturdays at 9 p.m. 9:30 p.m. respectively, and live music on Fridays starting at 9 p.m. So, Kings is pretty much your one-stop shop for all things fun.

Here are the details: Kings is located at 50 Dalton St., right next to the Hilton hotel. You can call with any questions at (617) 266-2695 (BOWL) or email them at info@backbaykings.com. It is open from 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. Tuesday-Sunday and from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Mondays. If a holiday happens to fall on a Monday, King’s opens its doors at 11 a.m. The facility turns 21+ after 6 p.m.

So, strap on your bowling shoes, and let’s score some strikes.
