Steps away from our headquarters hotel, Lucky Strike L.A. makes for a Closing Night Event that fires on all cylinders: bowling, billiards, and a private bar and play area just for us!  Dinner?  We gotcha covered.  Heavy hors d'oeuvres and gourmet pizzas will fortify you for 10 frames.  Bowling and billiards not your forte?  Who cares?  We’re all there to let our hair down and laissez les bon temps rouler!
