The Back Alley is a favorite of students, visitors, and community members who come to bowl with friends, practice their skills, or join a bowling league. We're open every afternoon through evening, and we feature 12 bowling lanes, arcade games and billiards tables.

Check out our Facebook page to see our current specials, league signups, and events.

The Back Alley is located on campus at the IMU, and we feature a non-alcoholic, non-smoking atmosphere. Parties are welcome, and we can arrange catering as well.
