Far more than just bowling, the venue has a large cocktail bar made from bowling lane wood, a full service diner serving classic American fare and plenty of lounge space to relax over a drink.

Centrally located just off Russell Square, the Bloomsbury Lanes are easy to access from all London areas.

Other Info
live band is Johnny Gunner and The Raiders playing authentic Rockin' Blues & Rockabilly with a dash of Bo Diddley, early Elvis and '60's garage; and as always our resident DJ’s El Nino and Tim Hellzapoppin’ will be spinning vintage tunes from the 1920s – 1960s to keep the crowd hula-ing all night long.

PLUS: a free swing dance lesson (get there early), hoop-off competition (think Hawaiian Run DMC style dance-off!) a screening of Blue Hawaii, glamorous popcorn sellers and hula hoop cabaret acts.

Dress: Think hit the beach for evening cocktails! Honolulu rock n roll, Elvis in Hawaii, Johnny Cash on holiday, grass skirts, Hawaiian shirts, pin up bathing beauties, cigarette girls, teddy boys, Happy Days, stripes, spots and sunglasses!
