Bugsy’s Tenpin Bowling and Sports Bar is situated on the sea front nearly opposite the Lido on Ethelbert Crescent at Cliftonville, just a mile up the road from the new Turner Contemporary Art Gallery
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!
You can now bowl at very competitive rates and then enjoy a fresh cooked snack or full meal at our Bugsy’s Diner. In addition, you can play American pool or snooker (no membership required) and enjoy a drink at the bar.
NEW!! Thanets only Synthetic Ice Rink is now open here at Bugsy's.
There are always various special offers so do keep an eye on this website for full details!
If you enjoy bowling regularly, why not join a league? You do not have to be an ace as most leagues apply a handicap system. Existing leagues include one for juniors on Saturday mornings as well as an after-school Alleygator Club for kids.
The only tenpin bowling equipment shop (Pro Shop) in Thanet is here at Bugsy's. Contact us for opening hours or to make an appointment for a consultation.
There is a special entrance to Bugsy's for disabled access so no stairs to negotiate. There is free on-road parking and adjacent pay car parks.
Sandy beaches are just a couple of minutes walk away and it’s only a short drive to the many attractions of Broadstairs, Canterbury, Dover, Sandwich etc. There are a range of hotels in Cliftonville including the Pavilion View Hotel and the famous retro style Walpole Bay Hotel.
