Striking gold in Brick Lane’s bowling hotspot
Some nights ago, my friends and I chose Brick Lane’s All Star Lanes as our venue for a colleague’s leaving party after enjoying a fantastic meal nearby, and it didn’t fail to disappoint. At just £8.75 a game (per person, including shoe hire), it was very suitably-priced considering its prime location, as well as its well-maintained and high-quality interiors, gleaming equipment, and fantastic customer service. As well, those behind the bar didn’t fail to impress with their cocktail-making ‘wizardry’, and the poor guy seeing to our needs on the private lane we were given was very prompt in resolving a couple of technical issues – although some of the girls in our group weren’t exactly complaining – the machine was very ‘gentlemanly’ in occasionally giving them significantly less pins to knock down! However, we were given an additional game free-of-charge to compensate for the inconvenience caused, so I must pass on our combined appreciation for that kind gesture on his part.
All in all, All Star Lanes is a fantastic bowling venue! Not only is a night out there great fun, but they’ve also got a really cool ‘vintage American sports bar’ vibe flowing throughout. I highly recommend it, and my mates and I will surely be back very soon to reclaim our titles as ‘Kings and Queens’ of the lanes!
