Brooklyn Bowl arrives in London!

Brooklyn Bowl opens in London!

So the latest hotspot everyone is excited about in London is the arrival of ‘Brooklyn Bowl‘, located in the famous O2 Arena on the Greenwich Peninsula.

London O2

Brooklyn Bowl is a famous bowling alley, restaurant and music venue and as the name suggests started in Brooklyn, New York. The idea as far as we could work out is that famous people perform/ bowl there and they are trying to bring that to London with the place being attached to the O2 Arena!

So we actually booked a table at the restaurant as we couldn’t reserve a bowling lane online but on arrival the waitress told us we could eat whilst bowling so we decided to take that option instead.

Bowling was £18 per 30 minutes (peak time!) so it can work out pricey if there isn’t many of you bowling but I think they allow around 8 people per lane so for larger groups it’s a bit of a bargain really!

We ordered loads of food including BBQ Pork Sliders, Cheesy fries and the biggest chicken wings we have ever seen. We had a friend from LA with us and even he was bowled over by the food! (Excuse the pun!)

The bowling itself is standard – bumpers / no bumpers – we chose none! But the atmosphere is great – fantastic music and nice decor creating a modern and edgy vibe. There are big TV screens playing music events which is awesome and I heard that some events from the O2 will be screened there too!

Halfway through bowling the lights dimmed and the pins and lane became illuminated which was a fun bonus!

I totally recommend London Brooklyn Bowl as a fun and relaxed night out for larger groups of people 🙂

They also hold events there and tomorrow they are holding a Super Bowl party – you can get tickets through their site for this.
