There is something for everyone at the Astoria Bowl. While simulated sports are all the rage these days, nothing can quite match the experience of lugging an actual bowling ball and the adrenaline rush that ensues as it barrels through the pins, sending them crashing down. With bumpers for kids, glow-in-the-dark cosmic lanes with laser shows, a pro shop for serious bowlers and touchscreens to keep score, this bowling alley promises its patrons hours of fun. The sports lounge is a cool and casual place to enjoy a game on one of the many TV screens over a drink with friends, while the dining room serves up delicious eats including burgers, pizza, salads, wraps and more. Whether you stop by for a game of bowling, a drink or a laid-back meal with friends, time spent at the Astoria Bowl promises to time well spent.

Central serves up Mediterranean food to New Yorkers in style. The interior is very impressive- leather banquettes, divided from the main floor by waist high glass partitions, line walls made from wide wooden panels, and in the center rests a white-padded bar. Towards the back sits a sushi bar, but the Greek food is Central's real draw, featuring, among other items, a positively delicious goat cheese salad. Outside is a lovely patio that is open during spring and summer for star-gazers and smokers. DJ's spin Greek music early in the night, then turn to European house later, as the club starts to get crowded and the bar warms up. The largely European crowd adds to the Mediterranean ambiance that Central cultivates. Food and drinks are pricey, which may discourage frequent visits, but Central is worth it, especially for a nightspot in Queens.
