Wilmette Bowling Center

A local favorite since 1927, the Wilmette Bowling Center is one of the oldest destinations of its type in Chicagoland. During renovations, the original lanes were made into tables and countertops to help maintain the historic character. The center now features electronic scoring, automatic pinsetters, and 10 real wood lanes. It’s one of the only alleys in the area to offer open bowling most nights. The hours are extended to 10:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and everyone from casual bowlers to serious league players is welcome.

At Classic Bowl, the motto is “Eat. Drink. Bowl. Win.” Visitors find 30 new Brunswick ProLane synthetic lanes, state-of-the-art scoring, and HD flat-screen televisions. Don’t miss playing on Monday nights as they host all-you-can bowl for eight dollars. 

Classic Bowl also offers a restaurant and lounge featuring burgers, refreshing cocktails, and pool tables. 


When Dale Schwartz was growing up, he enjoyed bowling in a kid’s league. He always had a good time, and after deciding to recreate the nostalgic fun, Pinstripes was born. Dale combined bowling and bocce with exceptional food, and invites everyone to play, connect, and change their frame of mind. 

In the restaurant, the chefs prepare a modern take on rustic American-Italian cuisine. Dinner offerings include baby back ribs, chicken marsala, and maple-glazed salmon,
