There are multiple spaces that can be hired in the Bowling Club – see below for details. The Bowling Club building can also be hired as a whole for large events such as birthday parties, community gatherings and even weddings! The ex-bowling green out front is owned by the City Council and is publicly accessible (including to hirers) on a non-exclusive basis.
See our Rate Card below for an indication of pricing (note that our hire fees are flexible, not fixed and vary based on the type of hirer making the booking, i.e. corporate, not-for-profit, creative and so on)

More about each of our Spaces:
1. Bowling Club: Kitchen/cafe/mezzanine and the seating area next to it.
This space measures 8.7×7.6m, seats 8-20 and is available for hire just as a meeting room, or with our newly completed kitchen. The kitchen has prep and wash sinks, 5-burner gas stove with gas oven, microwave, hot water zip, fridge with small freezer, and a Hobart steriliser.
2.Bowling club: Upstairs rehearsal/bar lounge
This comprises the rehearsal space with wooden floor (7.5×10.9m; sit down dinners have catered for ~90 people), tuned Haake upright piano, and the bar & lounge with couch seating (best for groups 20-30).
(The bar and rehearsal spaces are next to each other. They can partially be separated by folding doors, but these aren’t soundproof so we tend not to schedule different events in them at the same time.)
3. Vogelmorn Hall – Corner of Mornington Road and Vennell Street, Brooklyn. Opposite the Vogelmorn Tennis Club room and courts.
The Vogelmorn Hall includes a gently sloping stage ideal for performance. The hall has a polished wooden floor, a spacious open kitchen, modern bathroom facilities and electric heating. There are 65 chairs and 10 trestle tables available.
4. Finally, the co-working space downstairs and upstairs. You can rent a desk on a weekly basis, or come in to work casually by the day – email us to ask.
