Brooklyn Bowl Celebrates First Year Full of Rave Reviews

Brooklyn Bowl



On Saturday, March 7, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas celebrates its first year as Las Vegas newest, most exciting and unique entertainment venue. Combining 32 bowling lanes, five bars and an award-winning menu by Bruce and Eric Bromberg’s Blue Ribbon Restaurants with a dynamic roster of live music acts, Brooklyn Bowl is savvy locals’ and tourists’ favorite entertainment destination.

“It’s amazing to think a year has already passed, but we couldn’t be more pleased with the reception Brooklyn Bowl has received in Las Vegas,” said Peter Shapiro, founder and owner, The Bowls. “We’ve come to a city famous for its entertainment and succeeded in transforming the way people experience live music. We owe all Las Vegas music fans—as well as those who’ve visited us from around the world—tremendous gratitude for making our first year a stellar one.”

In just 12 months, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas has accumulated numerous accolades, including the following:
-Best Live Music Venues in Las Vegas, No. 1 – Travel + Leisure
-Top 10 New Restaurants 2014 – Las Vegas Review-Journal
-Reader’s Choice Best Live Music Venue, Best Concert Calendar, Best New Music Venue and Best Potato Kinish – Las Vegas Weekly
-Best New Venue, Best Ventilation – Vegas Seven
-Best Happy Hour and Best Music Venue – Desert Companion

It’s no surprise Brooklyn Bowl’s live music roster generates so much excitement among critics and music lovers alike. During the first year, the Venue hosted nearly 300 live shows representing an expansive array of musical genres, with artists including John Legend, OneRepublic, Elvis Costello, The Roots, Jane’s Addiction, Phil Lesh & Friends, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Primus, O.A.R., Smashing Pumpkins, Los Lobos, Steve Winwood, Wu-Tang Clan, Jack White and The String Cheese Incident.

Brooklyn Bowl’s restaurant, helmed by Chef Dermot Driscoll and featuring Blue Ribbon Restaurants’ menu, consistently receives raves. The much-lauded menu elevates comfort food and offers new twists on old favorites. Signature dishes include its world-renowned Fried Chicken, served with white bread and honey; Egg Shooters with pickled peppers and olive oil mayo; a variety of French Bread Pizzas, including The Theresa, with butternut squash, mushrooms and roasted garlic; The Bowl Burger Deluxe with all of the fixin’s and fries; and Mac & Cheese with baked crumbs. New to the menu are Chef Driscoll’s Deep Fried Pickles with Blue Ribbon seasoning and chipotle ranch. Brooklyn Bowl’s menu is complemented by a thirst-quenching roster of craft beers and spirited house cocktails, such as the Drunken Palmer, combining Seagram’s Sweet Tea Vodka and lemonade, and Rum Punch, a blend of Bacardi Superior, Gosling’s Rum and juice.

Brooklyn Bowl’s famous fried chicken inspired Driscoll to create the Fried Chicken Martini in honor of the venue’s first anniversary. This celebratory libation incorporates Tito’s Handmade Vodka, which was infused with fried chicken for two weeks. The fried chicken vodka is then poured into a glass dipped in a touch of honey imported directly from the Mexican honey farm belonging to Blue Ribbon Restaurants founder Bruce Bromberg. The honeyed rim is then dipped in the restaurant’s signature fried chicken seasoning and garnished with a boneless piece of fried chicken skewered with a sprig of rosemary. Executive Chef Dermot Driscoll’s inventive creation will be available for a limited time.

Finally, over the course of its first year, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas charted several notable numbers:
-Total guests served: 600,000
-Hosted shows and events: 325
-Pounds of served chicken: 60,000
-Pounds of French fries served: 30,000
-Number of beers sold: 260,000

Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas serves its full menu in the restaurant and at the lanes every day starting at 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and noon on Saturday and Sunday, when a brunch menu is also available.

Steve Winwood to Perform at the Pearl at Palms Casino Resort

Steve Winwood brings his undeniable blend of rock ‘n’ roll to the Pearl Concert Theater inside Palms Casino Resort on November 9, 2012 at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $49, plus additional service fees.

For more than four decades, Steve Winwood has remained a primary figure in rock ‘n’ roll. He burst into prominence in 1963 with the Spencer Davis Group releasing hits including “Keep On Running” and “Gimme Some Lovin’” and since that time his celebrated skills as a composer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist have developed an impressive catalog of popular music.

In 1967, Winwood left the Spencer Davis Group and co-founded Traffic. Beloved for their eclectic style and superbly crafted songs, Traffic released such landmark albums such as Mr. Fantasy and John Barleycorn Must Die – solidifying their position as one of the most important British groups of the 1960’s and 1970’s.

Winwood left Traffic in 1969 to join what critics would dub the first “supergroup” formed with Cream guitarist Eric Clapton, drummer Ginger Baker, and later, former Family bassist Rick Grech. The international popularity of Blind Faith, the group’s sole album, confirmed their special chemistry with staples such as “Can’t Find My Way Home.”

In 1970, Winwood reformed Traffic and guided a highly successful run founded on such popular albums as Low Heeled Spark Of High Heeled Boys and Shoot Out At The Fantasy Factory. By 1975, Traffic splintered and in 1977, Winwood released a self-titled solo debut signaling a bold new artistic direction.

Beginning with Traffic and extending through such landmark solo albums as the Grammy Award-winning Back In The High Life and Roll With It, Winwood has nurtured a restless creative spirit, mining rich musical traditions such as Delta blues, English Folk, R&B and West African calypso, and merging these diverse influences within his own unmistakable sound.

Winwood’s solo career has yielded a rich catalog of popular songs including “Back In The High Life,” “When You See A Chance,” “Valerie” and “Higher Love.” His most recent solo album, About Time, has continued that success, earning Winwood one of his highest Billboard chart entries.

Winwood has since renewed his creative partnership with Eric Clapton. Their expansive CD and DVD Live At Madison Square Garden was nominated for two Grammy Awards and rewarded their many fans with some of the most exciting performances of their careers. In June 2012, Winwood was inducted into the Walk of Fame in Nashville, TN.

Doors at the Pearl will open at 7 p.m. and show time is 8 p.m. The Pearl Box Office is open daily from noon until 7 p.m. with extended hours on select event days. The Pearl is now on Twitter. Follow @PearlatPalms for concert announcements and event information.
