How to Blow £5,000 in 24 hours at 8,000ft

One day in Vail, Colorado


Bowled Over

When you think bowling alley, your mind immediately wanders to dodgy verruca causing shoes, questionable background music and unflattering lighting. They do things differently in Vail; Bol Vail offers fine dining, an extensive wine list and bowling lanes that look like they belong in a palace, this is bowling with a difference. Not a kids birthday party or set of rails in sight.

Lounge on luxurious couches while you wait your turn with a bottle of the finest Chateau Petrus. Prices for the bowling itself are surprisingly reasonable. An hour’s lane rental will set you back £30 with an additional £3 for shoe rental. The bottle of vino however will set you back £2,650 – what’s the harm. Now you can look forward to the most expensive hangover of your life.
The perfect end to the perfect imaginary day in our book!

Time: 10pm till midnight. Spent £4958

Mission accomplished.
