The entrance to the HK Bowling Alleys was on the western end of Lockhart Road between Fenwick and Arsenal Streets. It was a long rectangular building with a pitched roof that extended up to Jaffe Road. I think it can be seen below upon completion of the Praya East Reclamation and used for other purposes.

The building can be seen behind the Blue Buildings.

The building can be seen below with bomb damage after the Japanese occupation. It was subsequently demolished in 1945.
