Overview Even off-peak, this 36-lane alley transcends many, with state-of-the-art playing areas and high-tech waiting list (a machine snaps pictures of waiting patrons for display when lanes become available). But its claim to fame is the party-inspiring spectacle staged most evenings: Huge speakers pump out pop music, smoke machines puff and colored lights give everything a rainbow glow. The bowling-alley-as-nightclub approach draws loads of Lincoln Parkers on weekends, though the spot's crowd generally reflects Logan Square's diverse demographics.
The Experience For teenagers and families, kinetic Diversey River Bowl is the rare place that's fun for everyone, not just because of the bowling and techie effects, but also the video games. For grown-ups, a menu of munchies contains typical fried goodies and other finger foods.
