The warehouse will be converted into an adult bar, food and bowling venue

A CITY centre bowling alley with a difference has just been granted planning permission.

Developers D2 are behind the plans to transform the Duke Street warehouse and former indoor car park into Liverpool’s first ever city centre boutique bowling alley for adults.

The 16,000 sq ft development, designed by Snook Architects, will be called PINS and feature a bar, bowling alleys, a street food menu, VIP bowling areas, shuffleboard and other experiential games.

PINS will have a private room, a bar, ten pin bowling lanes and other games

D2 director, Daniel Gillbanks,said: “PINS will offer people an alternative way to spend their evenings and weekends.

“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.”

Now work can begin, PINS is scheduled to open by the end of the year.
