Elevating the ‘normal’ bowling alley experience, PINS will offer a street food-inspired menu, a quirky 10 pin bowling experience, private VIP bowling, shuffleboards, and interactive experiences.

Developer D2 has secured planning approval to transform a warehouse on Duke Street into Liverpool’s first city centre bowling and activity venue.

The building at 45 to 61 Duke Street formerly housed an indoor car park and will be fully refurbished to include a 16,000 sq ft development, designed by Snook Architects, with access via both Wolstenholme Square and Duke Street.

D2’s directors, David Scowcroft and Daniel Gillbanks, have been researching for a number of years and have travelled extensively throughout America and Europe with a mission to bring the very best in design and activities to Liverpool.

They have a clear vision for the concept and envisage this adding to the cultural experience and diversity of the city.

“Above all else, Pins will offer people an alternative way to spend their evenings and weekends, whether they’re celebrating or relaxing,” said Gillbanks.

PINS is set to open later this year.
