From the sunny Westside to the breezy North Shore, if you're looking to play a game of bowling there's only one place to go, literally, and that is the Lihue Bowling Center. It is located in the Rice Street Shopping Center, just a couple minutes away from the Kauai Museum, and open 7 days a week. It is a popular local hangout for families, students, and work groups; whether you are a novice of the game or a seasoned bowler, all are welcome. The Lihue Bowling Center houses Kelly's Kitchen, a small-scale restaurant for quick meals in between heated matches or friendly competitions. Burgers, plate lunches, “pupus,” and an assortment of drinks are available. The bowling center provides bumper lanes on request for children and kids, as well as bowling ball weights from 6-16 lbs, so that everyone can bowl at their respective skill level.
The most popular time to go to the bowling center is on every "Rock and Glow" night. My recommendation is to plan ahead of time because those that claim a lane first are allowed to play for as long as they choose, all at just a one-time admission fee; it is first come, first serve. The night includes a live DJ, disco and laser lights, and of course food and refreshments at a cost. So, whatever the occasion may be, arrive with your friends or your family, roll a couple strikes, have some laughs, and enjoy the night. Rock and Glow is hosted on Friday and Saturday nights from 7-9 pm before resuming from 9:30-11:30 pm.
