Where to go bowling in Manchester

4 weeks ago

A couple of games of ten pin bowling always works, whether it’s a night out with mates, a way of keeping the kids entertained or a work event where a bit more social lubrication is required than just going to the pub.

Too often, bowling alleys are located in depressing out-of-town entertainment complexes instead of being right in the heart of the action. This rundown of where to go bowling in Manchester changes all that.

Confidential Guides brings you the top five city centre venues for a classier bowling buzz.

These places offer more than ten pin tension with the siren calls of shuffleboard, cocktails, karaoke, burgers and darts just some of the other attractions vying for your attention.

    Dog Bowl

    Activities

    Dog Bowl is a bar, restaurant and bowling alley with five full-length ten-pin bowling lanes. It’s tucked under the arches on Whitworth Street West and has the atmosphere of a cool bar rather than a bowling alley. Getting a strike is even better when you can do it somewhere stylish.

  • The bar at Lane 7, Deansgate
    Manchester City Centre

    Lane 7 Deansgate

    Activities

    Lane 7 Deansgate has bowling lanes as well as more than seven other things to do while you’re there and that doesn’t even include drinking a gin cocktail in a stein. Obviously, that’s just a given.

    As well as bowling, there is fancy-pants bowling with neon zig zags. A bit of a cross between a new restaurant opening and Blade Runner. All the bowling is pretty sleek and shiny though with the standard graffiti décor.

    Non-bowling entertainment includes just about everything that could possibly be construed as competitive with the exception of tiddlywinks.
