The Croc Bowling Alley

The Croc Bowling at Ham Yard Hotel, London is a spectacular space which houses an original 1950's bowling alley alongside a stylish lounge and bar. We've hired it out exclusively for the first Strike Club evening.

The Bowling Alley was imported from Texas and manufactured by the iconic Brunswick company, the monochrome bowling ball returns include original features such as hand warmers and visible return runs. The solid maple bowling lanes have been specially commissioned, making it one of only a few of its kind in the UK.
