Fun up top, party down below. Once you come here you'll understand what I mean. This place has had some incredible live act over the years. Its one of those hidden gems that mostly only the locals know about. Enjoy!

We bought tickets in advance to hear the Zydeco band. It was a really good band and there was plenty of room to dance on the beautiful wood floor. I highly recommend you try going here and listening to this beautiful music.

I have been to the Rock n Bowl multiple times, usually during Jazzfest. It is always fun. Lots of locals and visitors. Great music in an unusual environment. Come prepared to have a good time.

Caught the Mixed Nuts band at Rock n Bowl in New Orleans on 12/16. Great live music, good food and bowling, all the best things in life. The dance floor was crowded and the lanes were full of people just having a good time. No wonder they just announced a new Rock and Bowl for the Lafayette area next year.... More

My Wife and I love to dance Zydeco. My favorite Zydeco bands that play at the Rock & Bowl are; Geno Delafose, Leroy Thomas, and Little Nathan and the Big Timers. If you visit on Thursday night- you will not be disappointed. Laissez les bons temps rouler!!

We deliberately went on a Thursday night to experience the famed zydeco dancing. For dinner, their "sister restaurant" around the corner & attached inside) is Ye Olde College Inn. We went there first, & the manager that night, Jordan Williams, couldn't have been more gracious! We loved him! There was a 40-minute wait to be seated. we explained that we'd... More
