Bloomsbury Lanes

Want a different sort of night out? Try bowling at Bloomsbury Lanes!

Bloomsbury Lanes is a bowling alley in the basement of the Tavistock Hotel. It has a vintage feel conjuring up images of 1950s America – you almost expect to see girls in poodle skirts walking about! Apparently they have the only vintage above lane ball return outside the States. It costs £39 to book one lane for an hour.

But if bowling isn’t your thing – don’t worry! They also have a bar, karaoke rooms and a dance floor. The music varies – I have been there several times and each time it was different – sometimes it is live music, others DJs.

Keeping with their vintage feel, the Vintage Fair takes place there on the first Sunday of the month (£1 entry). Last Sunday, I spent several hours there and wanted to buy almost everything in sight! They even had people doing vintage makeup and recreating vintage hairstyles. Although it is on from 12pm-5pm only so I recommend getting there early! In the space of time it took to have some tea and cake – two items my friend was debating buying were snapped up.
