New late night Liverpool bowling alley to open by end of year

A new late night bowling alley plans to break with the idea of a “traditional ten pin bowling alley” when it opens in Liverpool later this year.

According to the developer behind ‘PINS’ on Duke Street, the venue will “reintroduce the game as a fashionable evening activity for adults”.

Customers are also being told to expect a street food inspired menu, private ‘VIP’ bowling, shuffleboard and “interactive experiences round every corner”.

As previously reported by Move Commercial, the building at 45-61 Duke Street currently houses an indoor car park which will be fully refurbished to include a 16,000 sq ft development, designed by Snook Architects, with access via both Wolstenholme Square and Duke Street.

D2 secured planning approval for the scheme in February and it is now expected to open in “late 2018″.

D2’s directors, David Scowcroft and Daniel Gillbanks, have been researching for a number of years and have travelled throughout the United States and Europe with a mission to bring the very best in design and activities to Liverpool.

Gillbanks says: “Above all else, PINS will offer people an alternative way to spend their evenings and weekends, whether they’re celebrating or relaxing.

“Recently, there’s been a cultural shift in how people choose to spend their recreational time. Increasingly, people are searching for more fulfilling experiences and activities to do at the weekend, rather than simply going to the pub.

“We’re proud to create a new venue that will bring 45 new job opportunities into the city while contributing to Liverpool’s increasingly diverse cultural offering, catering for all ages and interests.”
