Concierge.com's insider take:
It sounds like an old vaudeville joke, but the Rock 'n' Bowl combines two high-volume pursuits—live music and equally lively bowling—into one huge vintage recreational space. Depending on the night, the dance floor is packed with hundreds of bopping swing kids or twirling zydeco dancers or free-form ass-shaking R&B fans. Between songs, performer patter is punctuated by rolling balls and crashing pins. If you're a New Orleans veteran who remembers this venerable nightspot in its original incarnation in the Mid-City neighborhood, you might end up about a mile from the new location at 3000 S. Carrollton Avenue. It's not the same, but just as enjoyable.
Opens Monday through Friday at 5 pm and Saturdays at 2 pm.
