Blackhawk Bowl & Martini Lounge

Blackhawk Bowl & Martini Lounge is definitely one of the best features of Hotel Blackhawk. And, Laura, our bartender, was fantastic.

I had fun hanging out with Faith and Lance and sampling their delicious martinis the first night. I didn’t stay out late, of course, because Brian and I always video chat whenever I travel. I heard that Faith and Lance had a jolly good time with Laura after I left, though. There may or may not have been sing-a-long at the bar that night.

Here are some drink photos. Why? Because you can’t go to a “martini lounge” and not have any martinis. LOL.

You can’t go to a bowling alley and not bowl either and so we did.

After seeing this photo, dad said there was probably more martinis than bowling going on. But, in my defense, I didn’t actually bowl my best game until after two martinis. Thanks, Lance!

Here’s Lance trying to figure out what to do with this split.

We played guys vs. gals. Isaac was feeling pretty confident after the first game because he and Lance obliterated Faith and me.

It was a friendly competition and both teams were cheering each other on. The guys won the first game. Faith and I won the second game, but we were still seven pins behind in overall total. That’s when we decided to bowl another — deciding — game.

It was Isaac’s worst game and he wasn’t very happy. Guess who won our third and final game. Yup. Faith and I did. We’re awesome that way.

We had such a great time that it made me wish we had a place like Blackhawk Bowl here in town. The closest thing we have is The Alley and it’s just not the same. Blackhawk Bowl has a cozy, intimate feel. I love that they only have a few lanes so you don’t have to deal with huge crowds.

The only downside about Blackhawk Bowl is their rates. Five dollars per game and three dollars for shoes is a little expensive. The hourly rate of $35 is more reasonable but still up there. We were lucky that Laura hooked us up.

I’d probably go back to Blackhawk Bowl if I’m ever in Davenport again. The bowling is expensive but it’s a really cool experience. Totally worth it. If you’re ever in the area, you’ll have to check it out for yourself. Be sure to say hi to Laura for me!
