Sun Villa at Bellevue is going to close at end of May. Here is the news: AMF Sun Villa Lanes To Close
It is said that the nearest bowling lane is Lucky Strike Lanes
in Downtown Bellevue. The facility is smaller and is part of Lincoln Square entertainment center. It doesn't get good reviews if you check it out on the web.
There are also bowling alleys in Kirkland and Tukwila, also a few in South Seattle.
