a spontaneous trip to ten pin bowling was a great night at this venue. The bar adds to the fun of the night as does the lighting and the music. My only complaint was the music which was mostly pop and dance songs at the start but changed to rap music once the DJ took over. Despite asking several times for him to play more general music he stuck mostly to the rap and I did not find listening to songs about ni**ers and b**ches contributed to a fun time.

Went karaoke for some team bonding. Really good but limited number of songs you can sing. Suggest to book this venue maximum for 2 hours, otherwise you might repeat some of the songs.

Cost of venue is reasonable, as you can split the costs among the number of people attend, rather than per person.

We ordered a few entree items and drinks. Not much on offer, so dont expect to have dinner here! Drinks and nibbles are fine but can be costly.

Work team building event, there wasn’t enough staff on to give the service required.

It was a hot day, the air conditioning struggled which made the games a little sweaty then normal.

Overall just a bowling ally

I have been to Strike QV multiple times and always have a great time there. The staff are laid back and helpful, the place is clean and their music is top notch.

There are often great drink deals, and the staff are well trained behind the bar. You would think you are in a cocktail bar when you watch them make their drinks, which is a welcome feature in a licensed bowling alley.

Only downside to the place is the pricing at times. I have been to Strike QV and had cheap games of bowling, even free at times with drink purchases. I attended lastnight, asked for 2 games for 2 people and was told that on this particular night, games were $20 per game per person. This was just too much for a game of bowling - but this wont put me off. Call ahead if you want to avoid this!

All in all, a fun experience every time I visit.
