Hollywood Bowl is opening its 57th bowling alley at The O2 in Greenwich, London.

The 12-lane bowling alley will open in mid-June following a refurbishment programme and is on the site previously operated by Brooklyn Bowl.

It will also feature a Hollywood Diner serving gourmet burgers, hot dogs and shakes, with décor celebrating all things Americana.

An American pool area and two bars will serve beers, wines, cocktails and soft drinks.

Steve Burns, chief executive at Hollywood Bowl Group said: “The O2 is one of the UK’s premier entertainment venues, with over 200 events a year, so we’re very excited to be bringing a Hollywood Bowl to its eight million annual visitors.

“Our aim will be to encourage event guests visiting The O2 to join us for a bowl, a drink and a meal before or after their event; and for London residents to visit us with friends and family at other times.

“With the huge number of commercial outlets and offices located within easy reach of The O2, we’re also looking forward to offering brilliant office nights out and corporate parties with a difference.”

Entertainment company AEG own the Entertainment District in a joint venture with Cross Tree Real Estate.
