Another boutique bowling alley could be heading to Liverpool

A boutique bowling alley brand could be expanding into Liverpool under new plans.

Lane7, which has three sites across the UK, has applied for a premises licence to open a bowling alley at Clayton Square Shopping Centre.

The chain began in Newcastle in 2014 when property entrepreneur Tim Wilks opened the first Lane7 on St James Boulevard following a £750,000 investment.

Alongside 10 bowling lanes, the venue also offers ping-pong, beer pong, American pool, karaoke and mini-golf.

Since opening in Newcastle, Lane7 has expanded into Middlesbrough and Aberdeen, with the firm reportedly in talks to open in several other major cities across the UK.

Lane7 has not responded to our request for comment.

Last month, YM Liverpool reported how a new late night bowling alley plans to break with the idea of a “traditional ten pin bowling alley” when it opens in the city later this year.

According to the developer behind ‘PINS’ on Duke Street, the venue will “reintroduce the game as a fashionable evening activity for adults”.

Customers are also being told to expect a street food inspired menu, private ‘VIP’ bowling, shuffleboard and “interactive experiences round every corner”.
