Discover your inner Lebowski at Queens Bowling

Queens Bowling transforms the all-American game of bowling into a thoroughly London night out.

From the moment you descend the stairs into this fun-fuelled den of strikes and spares, you’re in another world. A place where neon lights pop in velvet darkness; where the atmosphere is charged with the the clattering of pins and the jubilation of a win; where the smell of incredible food from MEATLiquor simmers deliciously in the air.

At the heart of the complex are the Main Lanes: 12 neon-lit lanes buzzing to an eclectic soundtrack, the playful tone of the place summed up by the quote from Peter Pan scrawled in neon blue above the pins. MEATliquor deliver food and drinks to the super-comfy booths here at the touch of a button so it feels pretty special, but if you’re looking for something even more exclusive, book into the VIP Liquor Lanes. Cocooned in their own private quarter, Liquor Lanes boast five private lanes decked out in rich reds and turquoises and come with a dedicated host, bar and sound system. Just the ticket for a supremely cool night out.

Finished bowling? Head over to the pool table or the arcade for some old-school fun. Or make a real night of it at the MEATliquor diner: a destination London food experience, expect outstanding burgers, dogs, wings, rings and fries. You’ll also find a good kids’ menu, halal chicken plus a full range of veggie and vegan options to keep everyone at the table happy. And the full-service bar will keep you topped up with frosty beers and pop.

Service throughout is slick, unobtrusive, and friendly; your lane is set up for you ahead of time so there’s no need to waste time laboriously inputting your names or fighting about who goes first. And if life isn’t quite good enough, Meatliquor’s food can be ordered direct to your lane or table so all you have to do is focus on how you’re going to notch up a night of winning badgers*.

Prebooking is wise, and while you’re on the website, check out their regular roster of special nights and events to add an extra spin to a supremely cool night out.

Queens is also home to an ice rink, where you can indulge in the country’s only skate-up bar, the Sin Bin, and even book onto curling sessions.

*A badger is four-and-above strikes in a row (a strike is knocking all the pins down in a single bowl) – so you could have a four-badger, a five-badger etc.
