Brooklyn Bowling London O2

Brooklyn bowl is a fantastic place to spend a Friday night; located inside the Greenwich O2 (Millenium Dome innit) it has a great restaurant, a couple of seriously stacked bars (cheap prices for central London!) and a stage for love gigs.  Oh, and a bowling alley!

It’s very authentic American redneck theme and friendly atmosphere absolutely warmed me right down to my cockles. 

The chicken wire ‘walls’ add a certain ‘Blues Brothers’ flavour to the restaurant;  whilst enjoying my meal, I could easily hear the dulcet tones of Tom Copson, support act for Hayseed Dixie (more of that later). 

I really liked how you could hear the performance due to the open-plan structure to the venue.  Rawhide!

As for the food, wow!  What a menu!  I heartily recommend the half rack of ribs; certainly the best that I’ve had outside the States!!!  Watching the plates come out for other people was torture, everything looked fucking great.

The bowling is £14.95 for half an hour, maximum of 8 people on a lane.  So it’d be dirt cheap if you split a nights bowling with a decent group of folks. 

The lanes are stuffed with very comfy leather armchairs and sit right next to the live stage, so you could avoid paying for a gig ticket and just bowl whilst listening to a band knock out their tuned. 

I was impressed by the bar products, American beers like Samuel Adams, a Brooklyn Lager and the largest collection of bourbon I’ve seen since I visited a Mormon Elders house in Utah.

So folks, y’all have a good time now!  Y’hear!
