Highland Park Bowl
Known as Los Angeles’ oldest bowling alley, Highland Park bowl was established in 1927 in the midst of the prohibition era. The building originally consisted of a doctor’s offices, pharmacy, a music store, and recreational space.
During this time, patrons would obtain a legal prescription for medicinal whiskey on the second floor and then head down downstairs to have their prescriptions filled which allowed for legal “boozing” while bowling. It wasn’t until 1933 that the music store was approved for a live music permit which paved the way for the establishments modern day culture.
Today, Highland Park Bowl is known as a trendy antique filled spot with live music, craft cocktails, and food! According to LA Weekly, the bowling alley serves some of the best Pizza in Los Angeles! “top-shelf Southern Italian pizza is being crafted in the kitchen by Italian-born master pizzaiolo, Marco Aromatario”.
