Hello, We're The Alley

More Than Bowling

About US

The Alley is the perfect place for families, young professionals and students to gather. In addition to 24 original hardwood lanes, we have multiple flat screen TVs that show all of your favorite games, a separate bar specifically designed for private parties, and a full-service restaurant that serves awesome food.

The Alley creates an atmosphere of excitement  and nostalgia with vintage paper score cards and our state-of-the-art sound system. We guarantee that the combination will create a memorable experience.  And we’re open until 1am on Friday and Saturdays, making us a great place to hang out and unwind.

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.
