26. The Spare Room at Hotel Roosevelt

CITY: Los Angeles
ADDRESS: 7000 Hollywood Blvd.

Bowling lanes are usually paired with cheap beer pitchers and ugly shoes, but at Spare Room, the atmosphere is like a sleek, modern-day speakeasy stocked with well-crafted drinks that cost a pretty penny. The venue offers a little something for those whose love for games didn’t end at puberty, with two vintage bowling lanes (call ahead to reserve), chess boards, checkers, a photobooth and a sort of custom-made connect four. For those who could care less about the previous, the crowd and staff are equally good looking, and celebrities are known to lurk here 'cause, uh, it’s the Roosevelt. Stop by on Wednesdays from 6-9 p.m. for 1/2 price bowling.
