Unlike any bowling alley or bar you've been to before, Inter Bowling Majorna is the place for "disco bowling," which is basically bowling with booze, music and lots of colors. Don't be turned off by the bowling aspect: there is a full bar so coming here is just a unique night out. This is also a great place for parties and there are a variety of packages you can choose from.
A big bowling boom in Sweden started some years ago. Bowling used to be corny, seen as a sport for fat, middle-aged guys with mustaches. But suddenly, both moustaches and bowling became trendy. One of the things that helped was the film 'The Big Lebowski' by the Cohen brothers, a must for every bowling fan. Almost at once, many of the bowling halls in Gothenburg started to arrange disco or party bowling. It is played to loud music and flashing lights, with beer served in the bar. Göteborg's Bowlingkrog is one of the places where you can party bowl. Party bowling can be an experience, but if you are looking for a good game, come here in the daytime when the music is turned off and the regular lights are on. To get here, take trams 3, 4 or 9 to Stigbergstorget.
