All Star Lanes is a decidedly boutique bowling alley and lounge bar tucked away on a side street - an illuminated sign the only indication that the break in the railings has significance and the steps lead down to its basement entrance.
Formerly bank vaults, this is now a celebration of Americana. The bowling hall houses four lanes and is serviced by the attached vault bar, so called because bolts from the place's original incarnation adorn its pillars. A concealed VIP room houses a second bar and two further lanes.
