But what’s so different about the Brooklyn Bowl than other music clubs? Well, aside from the bowling, the musical acts are structured to resemble festival lineups bringing a new vibe to the club scene.
“In April when Phil Lesh plays, it’s going to go Phil Lesh at 9 o’clock, Trombone Shorty’s going to play a full show at one in the morning and Robert Randolph’s going to do gospel till dawn,” says co-owner and bowl founder Peter Shapiro.
“It’s like a festival lineup in a club. I don’t think that’s got precedent, to be honest. I don’t know when that’s been done. I don’t know when there have been three bands doing full sets in a club,” he said.
