Time Out says

With locations in Bayside, Glen Waverley and QV, Strike is much more than tenpin bowling. Sure, you'll be able to land a strike (or not) but you can also shoot your friends in lasertag or be puzzled in one of their escape rooms.

What makes strike different from your classic bowling alley is that the venue feels like it's very much aiming to target adults, rather than kids. Each venue has a fully stocked bar, meaning yes, you can have an Espresso Martini while knocking down a few pins. As well as cocktails, beer, wine and soft drinks, Strike also serves some very hearty alley-side snacks like pizzas, loaded hotdogs and even vegan pies. 

If you're looking to shave a few dollars off your bowl, check out Strike's website for their weekly deals and happy hours.

What’s on

High Rollers at Strike Bowling

  • Games and hobbies

Aussie bowling alley and all-around funhouse Strike has released its newest collab – a project to turn humble bowling balls and shoes into a thing of art. From Tuesday, February 21, players can get their hands on specially designed attire by Australian artist Steen Jones. Because, as the saying goes: 'Look good, play better'. Known for reinventing classic forms of entertainment, Strike Bowling wanted to elevate the usual alley experience and inject some style into the classic red, black and white colour palette. "It’s turned out to be such a cool (and bad-ass) collection," says artist Steen Jones. "Truth be told, I don't think I've ever had so much interest, hype or excitement for a collaboration, which is another reason why this project has been so great to be a part of" Steen's artistic style is recognisable from previous projects with Vans, Lego, Sailor Jerry, Rolling Stone and Converse, just to name a few. For $25, players can opt to upgrade to the High Rollers pack, which includes a custom design bowling ball, bowling shoes and High Rollers socks to keep. You also score a free stein of Furphy, express check-in and a High Rollers sticker pack. The High Rollers upgrade is available from February 21, ongoing – for players aged 18+ only. For more information or to book a lane, click here.  High Rollers is available all week at Stike QV, Melbourne Central and Eastland.
