Bugsy's Tenpin Bowling

* Currently closed due to National Lockdown *

Bugsy's Bowling is a friendly, family-run bowling alley situated just a few minutes' walk from the sandy beaches of Margate.

As well as bowling, Bugsy's also features a fully licensed bar, a diner serving fresh food throughout the day, plus a gaming arcade including air-hockey, racing games, dance machine and much more. There's also a pool area, featuring four pool tables, a pro-Shop, and free on-site parking.

Since its acquisition in 2008 by two families of enthusiastic bowlers, Bugsy's has been totally transformed into a great tenpin bowling, entertainment and dining centre.

Bugsy's Bowling includes a well-stocked bar and a diner serving fresh food and snacks - great whether you’re looking for a bite to eat and a drink while you bowl, or for a place to relax with friends after a game. See website for the menu.

We cater for birthday parties, groups, and work events, with several packages available. These can be customised to create your own packages by adding some of our extras.

We also have several leagues and a coaching scheme for children, led by an International Championship-winning coach.

With so much to do we hope you’ll join us soon!
