New Years Eve: Radio Social Bowling

18 Playful Picks for New Years Eve Around Rochester 2017-2018

Here are a few of our favorite ways to spend New Years Eve around Rochester, NY that aren’t already sold out! Get ready to play, laugh, sing, dance, oo, ah, and oh!

Our #1 pick this New Years Eve is Radio Social

Like a phoenix arising from the ashes of Clover Lanes, this new playful bowling concept is so much more than it was before! Yes, it’s a bowling alley. It’s also an adult play-space with a fun, atomic-era aesthetic. The Middle-Eastern-inspired food menu is a culinary experience; you won’t find nacho cheese pretzels or pizza here. Radio Social has everything you need to ring in the new year: games, live music, an exceptional food & beverage menu, and plenty of parking! It’s also right next to Comedy @ The Carlson (another recommended destination on this list).
