Bloomsbury Lanes provides 13 vintage bowling Lanes, a 1950’s American style diner, 3 cocktail bars, private karaoke rooms, small cinema room and regular live music/ club nights. So whether you're meeting up with friends, or holding a private bowling event for a large group, Bloomsbury Lanes has it all.


The Kingpin Suite is a stylish Las Vegas theme venue, available for private hire for groups of 50-250. Features include private reception, 5 bowling lanes, games room, DJ booth, stage and full PA system, karaoke, projector screens and hot tub. Party planners available.


Fine food served at the bar, diner or to your lanes - the extensive menu of eclectic American cuisine will satisfy even the most selective of individuals. Delicious canapé’s available when pre-booked and the famous Ray’s 26” pizza (London’s largest). All food served till late. 


They have an excellent premium spirit, wine, champagne and cocktail list. Hardly what one would expect to find in 10 pin bowling lanes. They also take great pride in their selection of draft and bottle beers - you will not find the usual suspects in this bar.

I can't say I've tried it but Ray's 26 incher sounds interesting...
