THE CROC BOWLING ALLEY
The Croc is a spectacular private events space which houses an original 1950's bowling alley, stylish lounge, bar and dance floor. 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.
Back-lit bowling balls, vintage bowling shoes and bowling pin lamps sit alongside two large scale Howard Hodgkin artworks. The silver baby grand piano and South African made sofas give a lounge feel. Bowlers bowl into a suspended brick wall with flickering lights and can choose to have UV pins and shoelaces. Three driftwood crocodiles scour the wall at the back of the dance floor.
