All Star Lanes Manchester had been gearing up for a full reopening on 4th July – but then they were bowled a split by the government with the news that the venue may not yet open for bowling.
What they can do in the meantime, however, is open for drinking, dining and karaoke – so that’s just what they’re doing. They’re calling it the Summer of Song.
From 4th July, the outdoor terrace at All Star Lanes will be decked out with a bar and plenty of seating.
It means you’ll be able to enjoy an ice-cold beer on tap or cocktail outside, as well as an all-day dining menu with American classics including stacked burgers, crispy buttermilk chicken and vegan rainbow salad.
Plus, every guest that visits will get half priced bowling when the lanes reopen. Bookings are now open for August.
Singing more your thing? Decked out with a state-of-the-art karaoke system from Singa with over 60,000 karaoke songs from all your favourite artists, All Star Lanes’ luxury private karaoke booths can be booked from as little as £10 per person for two hours of karaoke with a beer or glass of Prosecco.
It’s the perfect place to belt out all the tunes you should have been hearing in muddy fields up and down the country this summer.
The luxury booths and equipment will be fully cleaned after each group leaves to ensure singers are kept safe.
And there will also be a weekly competition for the best karaoke performance, with a new music genre announced every Monday. Would-be pop stars can share a snapshot of their performance on social media tagging @allstarlanes and #summerofsong for a chance to win some amazing prizes.
“We are delighted to be able to reopen and welcome back customers to All Star Lanes on 4th July for the Summer of Song,” says managing director Graham Cook.
“We have taken careful steps to ensure guest safety and our team can’t wait to get the good times rolling once more.
“While we can’t open for bowling just yet, you can be certain that when we do, we’ll have the cleanest balls in town.”
