Welcome to The Alley
The Alley, formerly known as Western Lanes, has been a Hillsborough Street landmark for over 50 years and is a truly unique place to bowl in Raleigh, NC. As soon as you arrive you realize that this is bowling the way it was meant to be. No rush, no hassle. Just cold beverages, great food and 24 original hardwood lanes. Fully renovated with its retro roots clearly showing, The Alley strikes the perfect balance between a forward thinking entertainment experience and a historic Raleigh landmark.

The Alley is the perfect place for families, young professionals and students to get together. In addition to 24 original hardwood lanes, we have multiple flat screen TVs showing nearly every game in season, a separate bar specifically designed for private parties, and Kingpin Grill, a full-service restaurant that serves street food with an attitude. Our state-of-the-art sound system and retro upfit will make your bowling experience one to remember. And we’re open until 2am on Friday and Saturdays, making us a great nightlife spot for the young at heart. The Alley offers excitement to a conventional setting with its old time score cards and nostalgic surroundings and has struck a balance between retro bowling alley and an energetic bar and restaurant.
Open seven days a week, The Alley is directly across the street from North Carolina State University in the heart of one of Raleigh's most vibrant neighborhoods. Anchored on Hillsborough Street near downtown Raleigh, The Alley is committed to the idea of making Raleigh a better place. By offering a dynamic family entertainment experience to a diverse and growing community, The Alley is far more than just another bowling alley. It’s bowling “the way it was meant to be” for the best prices around.

We're getting ready for fall and football season here at The Alley. And we can't think of a better way to celebrate than to announce that our new restaurant, Kingpin Grill, is now open.
