#BrumHour sent guest blogger Paul Clarke to have a game of ten pin bowling on our behalf and here is what Paul sent back:

Boutique bowling is a good description as Lane 7 has a luxury wooden interior and grown-up sophistication. They offer more than just bowling with a retro games arcade, an American shuffleboard area and even private karaoke room.

There is a big emphasis on playing, as well as bowling, so it’s a good choice of venue for groups of friends and parties.

Party Hire

There are 9 walnut bowling lanes, including two that are devoted to party hire. The party hire lanes are in a separate, more private area and come with luxury seating and a fridge that will be stocked with the range of goodies that you select when you book your party package.

As well as the bowling lanes there is a retro gaming area, I spotted games such as Donkey Kong, Track and Field, Pac Man and Space Invaders. By the gaming area there are 3 tables that you can hire to play American Shuffleboard, which is growing in popularity in the UK. There are also 2 customised tables that you can hire to play beer pong on.

The Perfect Selfie Spot

A pair of large red and white wings on the wall with a gap in between that you can stand in to get someone to take a photo of you that will make it look like they are your wings or you can try out the photo booth.

A karaoke room is available for hire and has a funky neon interior to perfect your latest musical interpretation.

Good to know

Calling is to the only way to book with Lane 7 but you can use the online form to send enquiries to Lane 7 and staff will then get back to you.

Bookings for multiple games cannot be made, even in advance, lanes can only be booked one game at a time on a first come first-served basis. If you would like a second game you can ask about the availability when you check in at the venue. Lane 7 request that you arrive 15 minutes before your booking.
