I visited Strike Bowling Bar, located in the miraculously large Charlestown Square Shopping Centre in Charlestown, on a Saturday night.
With a mix of bowling and a bar serving cocktails, beer, wine and spirits, as well as a pizza bar, it is an easy choice for a fun Saturday night out with friends. If that isn't enough to grab your attention, the premises also hosts laser tag and players can get a combo session of 1 game of bowling and 1 laser tag for around $20.00 (prices change from weekdays to weekends).
The atmosphere almost resembles a night club with neon lights set against a black back drop, even the balls are neon!
It is recommended that you book a lane for your party in advance, as it can get a bit busy and you may have to wait for a lane. Not to worry though, in the event that you have to bide your time until a lane is available, there are pool tables, a karaoke room, a gaming area and ample seating, such as lounges and an outdoor area, if you want to sit around with friends having a couple of drinks.
I absolutely recommend Strike Bowling Bar for a fun night out with friends doing something a bit out of the ordinary. Drink prices are reasonable, not differing much for your average club.
Cocktails start at $15.00, beers around $5.00 and spirits around $8.00.
Book yourself a lane today and see if you can get a strike!
