You don't have to roll like Jesus Quintana to take advantage of the latest 18 pine lanes now thundering at 800 Olympic Boulevard in Downtown LA. Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge opened its newest location in the upscale chain of bowling alleys and cocktail lounges in the LA Live! entertainment campus in downtown LA last night.

LAist can't promise that random celebrities like Paris and Nicky Hilton will be jamming up the wait list for lanes or cluttering up your bowling pictures, as they did at the pre-opening party last night. (See inadvertent paparazzi pictures.) But hey, with outdoor balconies overlooking the Times Square-wattage LA Live! entertainment campus, billiards tables, plasma screens and state-of-the art scoreboards that calculate your bowling ball's m.p.h., angle of approach and other nifty stats, waiting never looked so good.

The new Downtown LA location joins existing Southern California locations of Lucky Strike Lanes at Hollywood & Highland, The Block of Orange, and Torrance. The lanes cater to a 21-and-over crowd after 7 p.m. Per game rates start at $4.95 per person on weekdays.
