Booked a lane 3 weeks out without a clue as to how GREAT this place is. Part night club/ part game room/ bowling lanes this place is pretty incredible. Two lanes overlook Hollywood boulevard and quite frankly I'm thankful my ball did not go through the window. There is a scorekeeper whose name I now forget to help you keep... More

Did not realise this was a seperate enterprise to the hotel. Tried to book a reservation but no reply to an email given by reception. We turned up anyway to find an event thet wasn't advertised on their website or at the hotel. Only bar snacks & prawn rolls available so just had one drink and left.

The door girl with short blonde hair is a complete and utter waste of the money that she is being paid. She definitely needed her head to be pulled out of the place where the sunshine cannot be exposed to. The bartenders were awesome though.

My husband and I had a fantastic time at The Spare Room. Its a quaint, vintage feel of the prohibition era.. , great way to start the evening with delicious cocktails while playing board games like Jenga or connect the dots.. We really wanted to experience the vintage hard wood floor bowling alley, but it was a booked night, I... More

Very cool and classy bar with a great nightlife. The two vintage bowling lanes are very nice and bring a nice distinction to this place.

One of the hot spots of Hollywood, it can be tough to get into so go early, cocktails to die for! Worth booking the bowling package if you're with friends.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
