Christmas dinner burger with a side of pumpkin nog is a thing at this all-American Manchester diner

This yuletide season say no to cheap wine, dry turkey and ‘cocktails’ that should be wheeled back to the dust-covered drinks cabinet where they came from.

Get yourself down to All Star Lanes Manchester instead for the ultimate Christmas knees-up, featuring tinsel-strewn DJs, retro bowling, homemade American comfort food and truly inspired festive cocktails.

Whether you’re after a fun night out with friends, or a unique venue to host your work party, All Star Lanes is the ultimate Christmas party destination.

Here’s a flavour of what you can look forward to.

We all know that heart dropping moment when you’re looking forward to your Christmas dinner and it arrives at the table over-cooked, tasteless and drier than one of Simon Cowells jokes. The guys at All Star have got your back.

This year sees the return of All Star Lanes’ legendary Christmas Dinner Burger. And it’s bigger and better than ever.

A turkey, chestnut and cranberry patty beneath a generous mouth-watering layer of duck fat roasted potato salad, topped with a sausage and apricot stuffing fritter. It’s the sort of burger you dream about for weeks afterwards.

To fill you with even more Christmas cheer, £1 from all sales at the Manchester diner will go to The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

Finish off your feast with a decadent Eggnog Crème Brûlée or vegan friendly homemade Cherry Turnover served warm with a scoop of sweet soy milk ice cream.

If you like your treats a little stronger, why not indulge in one of their delicious Christmas cocktails?

The Pumpkin Nog is a festive concoction of gin shaken with pumpkin spice, caramel, milk, double cream and absinthe.

If a hard shake is more your thing, give the Mince Pie Milkshake a cheeky spike with a shot of Bailey’s or spiced rum to help you on your merry way.

And what better way to work off your Christmas feast than by hitting the retro bowling lanes? Step into the golden age of America and challenge your friends or colleagues to a festive game of bowling, All Star Lanes style.

If you’re looking to host your Christmas party at All Star Lanes, why not book one of their festive packages?

Two course feast packages are priced from £32 and include a game of bowling and half a bottle of wine per person. Bar packages start from £30. Ideal for your office Christmas party, these packages include a game of bowling, a VIP area in the bar, festive canapés and a welcome drink per person.

If you fancy partying up like the A-list, these guys have got you covered. Party-goers can book a private room and enjoy unlimited bowling on their own private lanes, call on a dedicated team of cocktail connoisseurs and feast on a spectacular array of festive canapés. Go bottomless with one of their Christmas drinks packages or have a karaoke singalong to get you in the holiday spirit.

You can drink, dine and bowl the new old fashioned way this Christmas at All Star Lanes. Book here.
