North Greenwich may not be an obvious choice for a fun night out, but that could be about to change with the new opening of US import Brooklyn Bowl at the O2 Arena.
The New York venue opened in a Williamsburg warehouse in 2009 and has remained an award-winning hipster hotspot ever since, and its London equivalent is hoping for the same reaction. But don’t let the name fool you, it's not just bowling that's on offer. Set to host some of the hottest gigs in town, the venue has direct access from the O2 Arena’s backstage area and a great sound system, which ought to pull in the slebs, and for some O2 shows, they’ll be streaming live video and audio of what’s happening on the main stage. Food-wise, the menu here is the same as in Brooklyn, serving up classic American fare including sloppy joes, oyster po’ boys, cajun catfish and fried chicken.
Family Bowl sessions for all ages run on Saturdays and Sundays from midday until 7pm, with a kids' menu alongside the main one. All lanes can cater for up to ten people.
