Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes

Description

For something a little different in London, check out retro Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes. From 12pm everyday you can hire one of their 8 cool bowling lanes. With all the cool quirks of a USA bowling alley from the 50s, there's not only bowling on offer here! Take a seat at their bar for one of their famous cocktails or shakes and 16 beers on Tap, book out a booth for dinner or get a group together and choose from their 5 awesome karaoke rooms for your party. From Thursday to Saturday nights you will find late-night DJ sessions or live bands grace the stage for you to dance the night away to; hardly what you would expect to find in 10 pin bowling lanes!

The bar is open to those non-bowlers wanting a drink; choose from the extensive spirit, wine, cocktail and champagne list. They even support the local breweries with their draft beer on tap, alongside an exclusive range including; Bitburger (Germany) and Lagunitas (USA). After you've worked up an appetite on the lanes, their classic American diner is the place to head for Ray's 26" pizzas or a yummy Strike Burger.

Another great feature if you're looking for over 50 people private party, is the bookable Bloomsbury Lanes' Kingpin Suite, complete with 5 bowling lanes, ping-pong table, its  own bar and stage. So, for corporate events to impress and parties looking to change from the usual bar experience, Bloomsbury Lanes bar is not your typical London party bar; a cool combination of a night at the retro bowling alley with the added edge of being at a live music venue with DJs and bands. This is an all-in-one night out with dinner, bowling, karaoke, DJ's and music all on offer.

Mind In The Gutter: We Took A Bowl At The Bloomsbury Lanes

Mind In The Gutter: We Took A Bowl At The Bloomsbury Lanes

Descending the stairs to the main space of the Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes you’ll soon realise that you are a world away from the slush-puppy-stained floor of the Streatham Megabowl (may it rest in peace). A neon-lit hub of bowling, karaoke, ping pong and comfort dining, it’s also one of Tavistock Square…
