Are you the Dude?
Boutique bowling that you should not miss!
Location: Victoria House, Bloomsbury Place, WC1B 4DA
Description: Now then...this is the Holborn venue but there are now 'All Star Lanes' in Bayswater and Brick Lane.
So what's it all about - Bowling of course! Think 'The Big Lebowski', 'Kingpin', that scene in 'There Will Be Blood'...perhaps not!
And what a place - 'All Star Lanes' is simply fantastic, a marriage of bowling, cocktails, the finest diner cuisine and unforgettable music, art deco decor - at any moment you expect 'Jackie Brown' to wander in with Samuel L Jackson in tow.
If you feel a need to go all 'Big Lebowski' which is of course essential behaviour, you have to do so here - Superb!
'All Star Lanes' was founded by Mark von Westenholz and Adam Breeden who opened their first venue in Holborn in January 2006. All Star Lanes also offers the ultimate private room experience, a self-contained bowling alley complete with cocktail bar - the perfect venue for private parties, corporate events or just for the truly serious bowling aficionado.
