We enjoyed our round of bowling here very much. The atmosphere is extremely upscale and our teens' selfies were abundant. Drinks and food are extremely expensive, as are most things in Vail. If you are looking for a bargain, call to see if they have happy hour bowling during specific times.

Bol is a hip, stylish, and modern restaurant plus bowling alley. We had a great time until we received the bill. For my family of 4 to eat lunch and bowl for 1.5 hours, the cost was $260!

The food never came. We ask it and within an hour the food hasn't came so we decide to leave. The manager was (at the end) very responsive and told us that we wouldn't have to pay for what we already ate. As a club is a good place to be with your friends but as a restaurant and talking... More

Management is extremely rude and seems to have zero respect for patrons. We were very disappointed with our experience. We will not be coming back or recommending Bol to any of our friends. Very let down.

We had two lanes for our group of seven. This is a very modern place right in Vail Village. Not the typical Bowling experience. We had drinks and appetizers and everything was pretty good. Service could have been a little faster for drinks. We had a lot of fun! This is a premium price venue, so it is not for... More

A local suggested we go bowling in Vail - a notion that would never have occured to us without her prompt. Turned out to be a HUGE hit with our multi generational group. Bol is (mainly) a restaurant with 10 full size, black light ambiance do lanes. The lanes have to be reserved separately, with a credit card to hold... More

Nine of us (3 adults, 6 kids) shared two lanes for two hours. Ordered some pizza and chicken fingers for the kids and a variety of apps for the adults. The ribs were great, lamb pretty good, steak skewers pretty good. Thought the cheese pizza was one of the best pizzas I have ever had....coming from a Jersey girl! The... More

If you have boredom in the mind, and rated every bar in the village, Bol might be the place for you. Very neat bowling alley in the mountains, nothing outdated about it. If anything, it's trendy and neat with big screen tv's and music. Pricey bowling per hour, but well worth it. The food they have wasn't too shabby either,... More
