Bowling House, Norwich

Friday night, date night?

When was the last time you went on a date with your significant other? Like a proper date – bowling, cinema, meal for two?
For me and my other half it had been a little while so I decided to take the bull by the horns a couple of weeks ago and book us in for bowling and food at the snazzy new Bowling House in Norwich city centre.


I had seen ‘BoHo’ on Instagram and I thought it looked really cool so this seemed the perfect place to go for our date. There seems to be a trend at the moment for bars/eateries with an added activity – such as the ping pong bars you can find in some major cities and the funky crazy golf bars which seem to be popping up all over London.
I think they’re a really good idea – they would be the ideal place to take someone on a first date to break the ice!

I booked Bowling House for 7pm Friday night last week, we were having 3 games of bowling and then they book you a dinner table for the rough time they think you’ll finish. The interior has been done so well, I absolutely love the use of lighting inside and the blue colour on the walls is absolutely dreamy, I would love a room in my house that colour. The actual building is near Toys R Us in the city centre, on Dereham Road – we parked in St Andrews car park, it’s only a 2 minute walk from there.
There are 5 bowling lanes in the perfectly sized building and you pay for bowling per game, per person. Bowling varies from £5.50 – £7.50 pp and there are different offers depending on which day you go so it’s worth checking out their website before you book if you are thinking about checking them out.

Date night on a budget…

The weekend before payday sucks. Whereas I used to get paid weekly as a hairdresser, now I am a 9-5’er and working in an office environment. Getting the weekends to myself is a perk – monthly pay is not. So you have to get creative when you’re waiting for the increased bank balance, you know? Unless you are superhuman amazing you will, like most other people, get towards pay day and be counting every penny in pitiful desperation after getting too excited and going on a shopping spree at the start of the month. If this is not you, well good for you aren’t you amazing please email me budgeting tips.

Today i’m specifically talking date night. What do you do when you’re both spent but want some quality time together on a Saturday night? Date night in of course! Bring the restaurant/bar vibes to you my dears. I’ll warn you now if you cannot cook this will not be the best idea but if you think creating a romantic scene around beans on toast will work for you then please, by all means, crack on! So, here is my recipe for the perfect night in with boo, enjoy responsibly people 😉  Continue reading
