Friends, family, and old or new lovers alike finally have something in common: M18 Lanes. With a prime Stanmore location, this bowling alley-cocktail lounge-restaurant just adjacent to M18, the exquisite fine dining Indian restaurant of the same owner, Minesh Patel, this place is the answer to that age old question, “Where shall we go tonight?”
Oh but this isn’t your typical bowling alley with the stinky rental shoes, stale smoky smell or outdated décor. Quite the opposite. M18 is more like a luxury bowling boutique, setting out to make bowling cool and trendy again. Ideally, you can come belly up to the sleek bar for a classic cocktail or two. Then when the conversation gets really good, head over to your table.
The restaurant within M18 Lanes is an eclectic fusion of Indo-Chinese and Grill. Feast on casual-style fusionised fare like Schezwan Noodles, Hakka Style Fried Rice, and Khandari Seekh Kebab. Unique and completely unforgettable, it’s not that bland stuff you usually associate with bowling alley food.
Then, knock down some pins on the lanes. Something about bowling under the neon lights really amps people up. Or could it be headline Djs and dancing that makes Friday and Saturday nights come alive? Whatever it is, this place has all the potential, making it an ideal destination for your entire evening lineup.
That’s not all though. You can reserve the lanes for a legendary private hire party in a luxurious yet fun setting. Not many places can make that claim of being both fun and fancy without that stuffy pretentious feeling. Events of all kinds are easy to host here, from corporate events to birthday celebrations and everything in between. And yes, that includes kids’ parties. While the kids should definitely sit it out for a night-time outing at M18 Lanes, you can throw them a party they’ll never forget complete with 2 hours of bowling, unlimited Squash soft drinks, and yummy food that gives them a choice of kid-friendly favourites like chicken nuggets or more adventurous fare like Hakka Noodles.
So stop going back and forth on places to go with the squad. Take that hot girl on a first date that will lead to a second one. And celebrate with the people you love being around the most at M18 Lanes where you can have everything you need.
