December 11, 2013

Strike Bowling has opened its latest venue in the entertainment precinct at the Macquarie Centre in Sydneys North Ryde.

The 12th Strike venue in Australia, the attraction provides a complete entertainment experience including bowling, laser tag, karaoke and the brand new Darts Live.

The newest Strike venue offers 10 bowling lanes, each with giant lane end video screens, custom made lane furniture and an arty new lighting concept. There are also three karaoke rooms and a fully themed laser arena allowing 24 players the chance to battle it out. High-end AV and lighting systems, a full-line kitchen, a deluxe bar, lounges, private party rooms, pool tables and interactive games all form part of the Strike Macquarie experience.

With a contemporary interior with edgy, industrial style finishes and giant murals created by street artist Adnate Strike, the venue features a huge island bar as the central focus of its lounge, set up for lounging, dining and playing, with Strike's signature jam jar Strawberry Mojitos available as part of a premium food and beverage offering.

20 staff members have been employed, with 10,000 people per month set to enjoy Strike at Macquarie Centre.

Welcoming the opening Strike Entertainment Managing Director Michael Schreiber explained "bringing Strike to Macquarie Centre was not 'rocket surgery', we are joining and rounding out a world standard entertainment precinct which will now add ten pin bowling, a great bar, laser tag, karaoke, pool, Darts Live and interactive games to their existing offering including ice-skating, movies and a great line up of eating options.

"Not only is this a family oriented area, but Macquarie Centre is also a central hub for university students and corporates who all want to enjoy themselves, relax, unwind and have a good time.

"Strike does good times best, whether it's catching up with mates to roll a few frames over a cold craft beer or hosting an action packed birthday party or work function with laser tag and karaoke in one of our private rooms, we make your fun our aim."

Opening just in time for the summer holidays, the wide range of activities on offer will allow Strike Bowling Bar in Macquarie Centre to be the ideal entertainment destination during the summer months.

As Schreiber concludes "at Strike, we pride ourselves on crafting memorable experiences with a laser like focus on customer service, great music, a well-considered environment, amazing cocktails and a wide beer selection. Our mission is to give you an engaging, social, interactive and enjoyable time, whether it is your first visit or your 50th.

"Opening our doors at Macquarie Centre means we are able to welcome a new market to the Strike experience."
