Manchester’s Great Northern Warehouse is to get a new boutique bowling alley this autumn, with the launch of Lane7.
The alley will occupy the former site of All Star Lanes, overlooking the Great Northern Square.
The new Manchester venue joins the roster of other Lane7 alleys, including its original home in Newcastle city centre and sites in Aberdeen, Middlesbrough, Birmingham, Liverpool, and Sheffield.
Alongside ten pin bowling, Lane7 Manchester will, like its sister sites around the UK, carry a whole host of other exciting gaming and entertainment options.
Owners are staying tight-lipped so far on what guests in Manchester can expect, but at other sites these include alternative takes on karaoke, pool, ping pong, shuffleboard, mini golf, retro arcades and darts.
“We’re delighted to add Lane7 and its boutique bowling and entertainment offering to the mix of exciting brands here at the Great Northern Warehouse,” said centre director, Mark Schofield.
“We know that this brand of fun is something the city sorely misses after months of staying home to stay safe and we’re sure the venue will prove popular with all of our visitors, whether they’re dropping in for a game of bowling, to enjoy the atmosphere while catching up with friends or eager to try any of the other activities Lane7 will be home to.”
“It’s been a long term dream for us to find a city centre site in Manchester and we can’t wait to get the doors open,” said Lane7 founder, Tim Wilks.
“We’re thrilled to be opening as part of the Great Northern Warehouse’s varied leisure offering and can’t wait to welcome guests onto the lanes very soon.”
Further details of the Lane7 launch, including opening dates, will be announced shortly.
