Spare Time is the best bowling alley I've ever visited. Clean, nicely decorated and great atmosphere with good food and drinks. It's a place you can go on a casual date, Birthday gathering or family outing. I highly recommend Spare Time.

Definitely would recommend this place to anyone. Really nice and clean. Surprisingly good food and fun atmosphere. Very nice appearance once you get inside. Doesn’t look like a normal bowling alley.

Nice and clean. Didn't angel like a bowling alley ( that's a good thing) food and drink were great. And the eating area was good to give you a break from the lanes. The seating arrangement while bowling is better than the normal wooden place...More

My wife planned a Birthday party for our son in April and the entire event was a huge success. The kids were happy, the parents were happy and the family was happy. Even though the party was costly, we enjoyed it!
