All Star Lanes combines an upmarket diner, a classic American cocktail menu (by Henry Besant of Lonsdale) and 6 lanes of luxury bowling. Players can enjoy snacks from the restaurant menu during the game and a separate cocktail bar and two-lane bowling alley is also available for private hire.
All Star Lanes reviews
AVOID this bar. Doorstaff are arrogant, incredibly rude, and accuse customers of lying.

I'm an East London girl who rarely leaves trendier-than-thou Shoreditch but I was persuaded to cross that invisible boundary and head westward for my good friend Karen's birthday party at All Star Lanes (I hadn't even heard of it before I received the party invitation). As soon as I stepped into the Holborn branch, I knew it was going to be a great night. Karen had her party booked in a swanky wood-panelled 1950s styled lounge called the Private Room - I called it paradise because the waitresses kept serving us tasty-sized canape treats and a handsome bartender kept the 'jolly juice' flowing. And the best thing about the Private Room is that we could bowl to our hearts content. Karen had an amazing time and so did we - job well done and everyone left slightly tipsy, well-fed and happy.

Rude service and rip-off prices. I will not be going back.

Will take bookings for multiple games and then kick you off the lanes after 1 game. The girl behind the desk told me that it happens every single day. If you look through you will find a lot of unhappy people amongst all the fake reviews. Vowed to make sure that everyone I know never goes there.

Lovely. I had birthday drinks here and the combination of ludicrous plush and gorgeous cocktails in the bar made me go all misty-eyed before I'd even had a sip. Delish.

What a great night out. Such fun to finally find somewhere with a little more edge and character than your usual bar/club. Classy place and fab atmosphere. I defy anyone not to adore the milkshake - it's heaven.

This place is such good fun. Food was great, really buzzy atmosphere and the staff were friendly and chatty. Definitely recommend it!

I went last week with a friend and we both absolutely loved it. Great cocktails, good food and the bowling itself was so much fun. We stayed until 1.00 in the morning!

Had such a great evening here with my friend. Staff were great, as were food and drinks. A definite must-do. Also spotted a few celebs hanging out!

I love this place - great food and drink and, although it can get very busy, the staff are a lot of fun.

Beware: do not book a lane here. They claim to be open till 2am. They closed the bar and lanes at midnight, throwing us out, despite our having booked days in advance. They charged us £36 for half an hour's bowling, despite claiming they were open tilll 2am! Staff have a bad attitude and this is not a good place to hang out.

More cheesy than chic (it reminds me of the kind of place Girls Aloud might like). Good concept but mediocre food, terrible acoustics, and too expensive for what it is.

Had a wonderful evening here. People and surroundings were oh so cool, bowling was awesome, food was delicious and drinks were fab. Worth a visit, without doubt.

Admittedly I went during Christmas party season, but was not impressed. It just felt like they were trying to get you in and out as quickly as possible. And the cocktails were very poorly made. It certainly wasn't the 'premium' experience they are trying to sell. Will have to go back to give it a second chance.

Had an absolutely shocking experience at this place. Inexperienced waitress incorrectly brought a £75 bottle of wine rather than an £18 one after she looked at the wrong page! Manager was exceptionally rude when error discovered 3 bottles later, and absolutely no effort was made to remedy the situation or reach a satisfactory compromise. Be warned!! Shame, as it totally ruined an otherwise fun day.

Lovely, friendly atmosphere, lots of cheerful faces, everybody having fun. Food is really good - had a burger to die for. GBK, Tootsies, you are nowhere near.

All Star Lanes is the best night out I have had in London in a long time. They achieved everything to such a high standard - good food, fab cocktails and friendly staff, with bowling on the side... What more could one want?

Brilliant night out - loved the bowling, delicious food, fantastic cocktails and great service. I'll be back.

All Star Lanes is the coolest place. Me and a couple of mates went for a few drinks and a bit of bowling. Finally a bowling alley where you can stay for some food and drinks after your game or, more to the point, where you actually want to stay after a game. The staff definitely add to this - all really friendly, which makes a nice change. Would recommend a visit.

All Star Lanes is fabulous. A trendy bowling alley with real food - who would ever have thought it? Staff were lovely also. All in all, a great idea - just what was needed in London.
