Described by Rolling Stone magazine as ‘one of the most incredible places on earth’, Bruce and Eric Bromberg’s legendary Brooklyn Bowl now has a high-octane offshoot in London’s O2. Comprising 12
bowling lanes and an 800-capacity concert venue with bags of eating and drinking possibilities, the new venue follows its stateside superstar to the letter. The entire menu has been transported
from the US original, so expect a line-up loaded with transatlantic classics such as oyster po' boy sandwiches, Cajun catfish, French bread pizzas and egg shooters with pickled peppers and
olive-oil mayo, plus their world-renowned ‘fried chicken dinners’ served with white bread, mash, southern greens, bacon and honey. Beers come from London’s Meantime and the Brooklyn Brewery, while
frozen margaritas made with blue agave Casco Viejo Reposado are served alongside a selection of wines, Prosecco and Champagne.
"You have to try the fried chicken with hot sauce and honey. I know it sounds weird but I promise it works." Not sure if the waitress is pulling my leg or being serious, I remain skeptical until a huge tray of golden-brown fried chicken is brought out with a squeezy bottle of runny honey. She’s right of course, this apparently American tradition of serving sweet with savoury works perfectly...

Did you know there is currently an exhibit at The O2 of Elvis memorabilia that they’ve shipped over from Graceland? It’s called Elvis at The O2 and Brooklyn Bowl London knows plenty about the exhibit.

As we entered we were met with a Check In Desk with lots of bowling shoes and quite the classic bowling alley feel. There was even an old fortune teller like in the movie Big...

I don’t think there is anywhere as corporate or as soulless as the O2 in Greenwich, and yes, I am even counting the two Westfields. So it seems a little weird that hipster mecca Brooklyn Bowl would pick this spot to open up. I can only assume they didn’t realise what reputation the place had. But anyway, they’re here, and I’ve fancied giving them a visit for a while, being as I went to the original one when I lived in Brooklyn.I was invited there for a special occasion – the launch of their new Elvis-inspired menu, to coincide with the new Elvis exhibition at the O2. A little group of foodie bloggers were...

This is not your stereotypical bowling alley food. This stuff is actually good. I would come here for the food alone. It’s not fine dining, it’s comfort food. I can tell you, I was comforted. We were happy to have a real, live American joining us, and her verdict was equally as glowing, but she did notice that there was much less sugar in the peanut butter than in the States! Maybe they’re catering towards British tastes, we’re not so peanut butter heavy over here. Also, those thick shakes were gorgeous, but my god were they thick. The kind of thick where you can’t quite get the last bit, no matter how hard you try....
