Date Night: All Star Bowling

bowling 2 bowling 3 bowling 1 all star calamari all star lanes food all star lanes all star meatballs

Although the bf and I go out for dinner all the time I don’t think we really do enough other date night (probably my fault) so this weekend we went bowling, just the two of us and it was such good fun!

I’ll admit that I never win him at anything that required physical activity other than at a golf driving range and he totally taught me everything I know. I’m not the best loser so luckily he also helped me through bowling and I think I got my first spare and strike in the last ten years!

We went to All Star Bowling Lanes which I’ve actually been to before and it’s by far the best bowling alley I’ve ever been to! It’s not too big and I would recommend booking but it’s got a real luxurious feel to it.

After our two games of bowling (and yes I lost both) we, of course, had to have dinner, because what is date night with no food? The menu is very American-inspired, with all the burgers, hot dogs and nachos you would expect. We shared a Popcorn Squid, which is probably the best squid I’ve ever had as I love crispy food and I went for the Meatball Hoagie off the specials menu, Mike got a burger and we shared some chips. Actually, we ended up sharing our whole meal, since sharing is caring and he really wanted to try the meatballs.

The meatballs were so good and I’d highly recommend them (I did remove the cheese on my half as I try not to eat dairy) but they are limited edition so you’ll have to get in there this month to try them for yourself. Oh, also get the Gin and Elderflower Julep Jar, such a good cocktail!

Would highly recommend All Stars for a date night or just hanging out with friends and there are four London locations and one in Manchester but check out their website for more info.

What should we do for our next date night? I was thinking some sort of exhibition, please leave recommendations in the comments

    This looks like such a great idea for a date night. I always struggle to think of ideas. Cinema and meal are about as creative as I get!

    Looks like you both had a lot of fun. The food sounds really tasty! We are the same, we go out for food all the time but don’t really do many date nights, definitely going to take a leaf out of your book. Sophie x

    I love bowling! The hubby doesn’t though (sore loser, pshhh), so we don’t do it very often.

    I love ten pin bowling but never considered an alley as a potential place for a date. My problem is I’m a tad competitive and that would probably overshadow the romance. Great idea though!
