Plan Your Event

Whether a corporate or social occasion, Colonial can accommodate your event in style! Formal or casual, we can customize each party to make it memorable.

Things You Should Know

All guests should arrive 15 minutes before party start time

For Bowling parties, it’s best to email names of children and shoe sizes to info@colonialbowlingnj.com ASAP.  If we do not have this information in advance, there could be a delay, resulting in less time on the lanes.

What do I need to do to reserve the space?

Colonial Bowling & Entertainment requires a minimum of 10 guests to reserve space through group events.  Your event is finalized with an online invoice and 50% deposit.  Space will be held up to 72 hours without a deposit.  Orders booked online require a minimum deposit at the time of booking.

Is tax and gratuity included in the pricing?

Birthday prices do not include tax and service/gratuity. Private VIP Lounge bookings are subject to an 18% service/gratuity charge and is included on your invoice.

Can I bring my own cake? How about food?

What’s a birthday party without cake? If you purchase a birthday party package or rent VIP – by all means, “Let them eat cake!”

Otherwise, bringing food or beverage into our facility is not allowed. But our food is pretty good and we offer plenty of options!

May I decorate?

In the party rooms, yes you may. The exceptions are: glitter, confetti or silly string.  We cannot tape items to the wall.  Piñatas are not allowed.

Can I bring in my own entertainment?

Due to insurance liability, you must contact WayneT@colonialbowlingnj.com prior to entering into a contract with an entertainer. This includes, magicians, face painters, costume characters, DJ’s, photographers and other performers.

Where will my event take place?

Event space depends on the size of your group and is subject to availability.  Space options include: semi-private birthday room, Private VIP Lounge, Doc’s Bar & Grille and bowling areas.

What is the cancellation policy?

The guest has 72 hours once the 50% deposit is applied to the invoice to review and make changes and/or cancel the event without penalty. After 72 hours, the deposit is non-refundable.
