Bowled Over By Kingpin

[emphasized type=”emphasized”]Kingpin Crown relaunches with a right royal makeover, and it’s a strike![/emphasized]

Who doesn’t love an activity?! Just in time for the holiday season a.k.a. ACTIVITIES TIME, Kingpin at Crown has reopened with a contemporary bowling experience, and then some!

The refurbished Kingpin is the ultimate entertainment destination with three licensed bars, three food areas, redesigned bowling lanes, premium event spaces and a games area.

Gone is the dingy lighting, dirty vinyl chairs and tacky wood paneling of your typical bowling alley. The new Kingpin is architecturally designed and smashes any perceptions of a tradition alley!

The Hub

LIT in more ways than one, The Hub is a contemporary dining and bowling space featuring a constant light show projected across 3000+ bowling pins secured to the ceiling.

As its name suggests, The Hub is the centrally located heart of the venue. The 390 capacity space features an open bar and 75 seat restaurant boasting a fresh new menu designed in collaboration with leading Victorian producers. At the centre of the menu are modern contemporary favourites like the New York Cheeseburger or Smokin’ Hot Memphis Wings, but with the odd curved ball(pun intended). And you’re definitely not going to pass up dessert with the S’mores Ice Cream Sandwich and Patron Tequila Choclate Tart coming up trumps!

Taking bowling to a new level, complete with DJ booth, pool tables, iPads for scoring and bowling-based games, The Hub is open 7 days a week from 10am – 2am.

Patrón’s Room 300

Patron… pretty much the only shot worth doing. And when there is a whole bar of it… pretty much the only bar worth knowing! Located behind The Hub is the 125-capacity Patrón sponsored Room 300. With a live entertainment stage and a luxury cocktail bar, Room 300 serves a custom range of Patrón based cocktails. Open to the public Thursday to Saturday evenings and available for event hire, guests can retreat in luxury in Room 300.


Outside Kingpin is Playtime – a gamers heaven(not limited to gamers!). Packed with brand new, Australian-first games, as well as a laser tag arena (YAASS!), vortex tunnel and light display, you’ll find it hard to ever leave! Holding up to 400 guests, Playtime features interactive games and its own food and drink area complete with an Instagramable menu for kids and big kids. AND THERE ARE PRIZES! Winners enter the winners vault – a specially designed shop bursting with top prizes; latest electronics and toys to take home.

Pins Royale

The jewel in the Crown is the exclusive Pins Royale, a deluxe 150 capacity private event space located on a mezzanine. With a private street entrance, fully licensed bar and kitchen and private amenities, high rollers will be spoilt with a revolutionary bowling experience complete with mahogany lanes and gold bowling balls. Only available for exclusive hire, Pins Royale guests get to enjoy karaoke, entertainment, butler service and elegant canapés such as freshly shucked oysters with ponzu dressing.


With bowling, games, food, drinks and private rooms, Kingpin is ideal for corporate functions, team building, hens and bucks, weekends with friends and weekends with the kids. The new and improved Kingpin has been designed for those who… well, anyone!
