New York venue Brooklyn Bowl is to open a UK outpost in London next week (January 16).

The new 800-capacity gig venue will also feature 12 lanes of bowling, a private party area and Blue Ribbon restaurant.

Although the lineup for the venue is yet to be announced, since its launch in 2009, the original New York site has hosted acts ranging from Kanye West, Haim, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, James Murphy, Adele, Guns N' Roses, Paul Simon, Big Boi and N.E.R.D.

"When thinking of another city that's as influential on global culture as New York, there's only one that immediately stands out," Brooklyn Bowl owner Peter Shapiro said in a statement, "And that, of course, is London. We're thrilled to be bringing the Bowl's unique and multi-pronged vibe to what really is the most important city in the world."

The venue will open at London's O2 Arena in Greenwich on January 16.
